Matsuzaki & Kimura take GW Champs

Matsuzaki & Kimura take GW Champs

Last weekend in Japan, at the Yatabe Arena, saw the GW Championships take place for off road electric cars. As always in Japan, the competition was fierce as the big teams had their best drivers at the event to compete for this title. In the 2wd class it was Hot Bodies racer Hayato Matsuzaki that the took the win by the tiniest of margins, only 7 tenths of a second ahead of Yokomo/Asso driver Sinnya Kimura in 2nd, while 3rd place went to Kyosho top man Sinnosuke Adachi. In the 4wd class it was Sinnya Kimura again, driving a Yokomo BX that took the win by less than 2 seconds from 2nd placed Hot Bodies racer Hayato Matsuzaki with another HB D4 in 3rd, driven by Tatsuya Sanpei.
