New York State Championship report

New York State Championship

We received a report from the recently held New York State Championships that were was run by the Fanatic Remote Racerz of New York, who were able to not only build the club to a level of racing that the Region needed but are able and willing to build our sport of RC in general and do what is necessary and make any and all sacrifices to make sure that our sport survives and succeeds. The NYSC as it was dubbed pulled out some of the fastest guys in the Region that were able to make the attendance for the day. The day moved at a pace like no other and proved to be a formidable tuning day for all combatants for the title of State Champ.

1/8 scale and 1/10 scale alike were challenged by the competitive level that all the racers were prepared to put down on the asphalt. It proved to be a challenging day as the NYSC brought down challengers from far and near; from veteran to newbies. One of the most important things of the day was the introduction of the Inferno GT 1/8 scale class. This class did not bring out many as it was placed on the roster after the plan of its induction into the program. Its introduction was to come for the new season but was deemed necessary for its affordability, durability and its definite ability to bring the new blood to the SPORT that we love so much of On-Road racing.

As the day drew out challenges were met and taunts of attacking on the asphalt to hold TQ became a driving source for some of the racers. It proved to be a challenge that would be hard to take from Richie Siriano. As the tale of the tape holds the truth but this driver has managed to pull of some very successful wins at home as well as on the road. Richie Siriano was able to hold down the competetion and walk away with the win proclaiming him the New York State Champion, his ability and experience proved to be the tools that equipped him to claim and earn the title. The 1/8 scalers duel was a battle and great show. Mikey Mike who if not had experienced a crash early surely would have had a podium spot. Carl Giordano with out a doubt put on a show to remember as well experiencing a few issues keeping him at bay but still managing to work his way to and earn a well deserved position amongst the fastest drivers in the region.

The B main 1/8 was also a fun filled and action packed race as well as one of the Fanatics very own team and crowd favorites. Ted Carrington the winner bumping his way into the show followed by Pete Rodriguez (one of the most improved drivers of the season), Junior Riley (whose driving all season has consisted of major wins and pull throughs that were just unbelieveable), Terrence Smith (another formidable black top foe), Chavo ( another one of the Fanatics team and fast drivers), Dred “The Running Man” Ross (from start to finish of any race on his feet at home or away).

For the 1/10 scale battle this was a battle in the A main between 3 absolutely excellent drivers and with out a doubt a show that will not soon be forgotten. Jamie Corrado, Sal Amato, Diatta Collymore. They put on a show trading paint; places and showing showmanship and skill that will be talked about until the next chance these racers meet again. Jamie Corrado was able to maintain and hold down the win while Diatta and Sal put on a show that rivaled no other. The NYSC ended on a great note for the club, for RC, for showmanship giving a definite boost in the arm for the ability of the On-road Scene to produce quality racing and introducing lots of new comers to the ON-ROAD class of the future 1/8 scale Nitro GTP.
