Frank Lemke wins Krick/Cen Monstertour

Frank Lemke wins Krick/Cen Monstertour

Last weekend the second leg of the Krick/Cen Monstertour was held in Mechernich, Germany. The damp and muddy conditions added extra stress on the cars and engines and so only the best equipment would make it through the difficult conditions. These special format races are comprised of 3 events, a slalom race were the cars have to go through various obstacles, a long jump contest and a normal race held on a race track. It was the first outing for Kyosho Germany driver Frank Lemke’s Inferno ST-RR powered by the new .21 CRF Buggy engine. In the long jump event, Frank was able to jump a distance of more than 10m (30ft), 20% more than the competition. In the regular race held on the (muddy) race track, Frank’s CRF powered car was 1 second a lap faster than the rest of the field. Using the CRF engine’s torque to it’s full extent, he was 1 lap faster in each qualifier. During the muddy finals, Frank was able to get twice the run-time out of a fuel tank than his competitors and was able to take the win.
