Viktor Wilck wins TC WC Warm-up

Viktor Wilck wins TC WC Warm-up

The finals at this years Pre Worlds in Thailand have been run under dry conditions as the expected rains didnt show up. Leg 1 of the main final saw Masami Hirosaka take the win for Yokomo as early leader Viktor Wilck clipped a kerb which allowed following pair of Marc Rheinard and Masami through, though Marc went wide leaving Hirosaka into the lead and on to take the win. The 2nd leg saw a good battle at the front as Atsushi Hara worked his way to the front after some great passing moves, and the Hot Bodies racer continued to lead until 1 minute to go when his car shut down, allowing Wilck back into the lead followed by Rheinard and Serpent driver Billy Easton. This all meant the winner would be decided in leg 3 and it was Viktor Wilck that jumped straight into the lead with Hara in2nd, managing to get past Rheinard early on. This was how it stayed until again close to the end, when Hara had another shut down, leaving Marc up into 2nd and Hayato Matsuzaki up into 3rd. This result gave Viktor Wilck the overall win ahead of Tamiya team mate Marc Rheinard in 2nd, while Masami Hirosaka took 3rd after a tie break with Matsuzaki and Easton.
