TC WC Warm-up – Viktor Wilck TQ

TC WC Warm-up - Viktor Wilck TQ

Qualifying for this weekend’s Pre Worlds in Thailand has taken place and despite the rain coming down last night, and threatening to come down later on in qualifying, the organisers managed to get 5 rounds of qualifying in, with the best 3 counting. In the end it was Swedish Tamiya driver Viktor Wilck that has come out on top, ahead of his team mate, and former World Champion Marc Rheinard in 2nd. Next up was Atsushi Hara, quickest after controlled practice, he will start tomorrow’s triple mains from 3rd, just ahead of Hot Bodies team mate and 2wd buggy World Champion Hayato Matsuzaki in 4th. Notable drivers not to make the final are current World Champion Andy Moore who is sitting in 12th, and Kyosho driver Shin Adachi, who was 2nd quickest in controlled practice but only ended up in 14th after qualifying. Tomorrow will see all mains run, but unfortunately the weather is not looking so good.
