Darren Johnston wins NZ 4wd Nationals

Darren Johnston wins NZ 4wd buggy Nats

The New Zealand Electric off road National Championships were run last weekend at the Hawkes Bay Radio Control Club’s permanent track in Hastings. The modified class qualification saw James Rainey claim the TQ spot in both 2wd and 4wd buggy and he was able to carry his pace through into the finals in 2wd to win from Graeme McDougal in 2nd and Darren Johnston in 3rd. In the 4wd class, Rainey couldn’t manage to do the double as Johnston, driving a B44, was able to take the win in the first 2 finals with good times to sew up the overall title from Perry Field in 2nd, with pole man Rainey ending up in 3rd.

Full results from the event can be found here.

Thanks to Darren Johnston for the report.
