We received a report from the first ever RC Pro Series buggy race to be held in Canada, which was hosted by RCGEARs of Calgary on May 18. There were a total of 78 entries in the five class field of machines and thanks to everyone present, the races and tech ran super smooth for the entire single day event. In Expert Truggy Medicine Hat’s Ty Tessman put on a driving clinic, both TQ’ing and taking the win. Calgary’s Troy Davies drove the wheels off his Kyosho truggy to come from 10th place early in the race to finish 2nd. Jammin’s Navaz Walji took 3rd.
Expert Buggy had Ty Tessman repeat his truggy performance by TQ’ing and winning the race. Also from Medicine Hat Dustin Fedosa took 2nd with Troy Davies rounding out the main in 3rd.
Intermediate Truggy saw second year driver John Guss and his Kyosho truggy take the TQ and win. Corey Jones and Matt Dickson rounded out the top 3.
Intermediate buggy had Edmontonian and RCRE president Steve Svendson take the win. TQ Shawn Felix had to retire early in the race. Rick Kapitan and Dave Cole finished 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Monster Truck showcased the power of electric as Calgary’s Ross Gibson TQ’ed the class with his E-revo. This is Ross’s first year of racing to boot!! The main had lots of great battles between the top three finishers with all of them swapping back and forth for the lead throughout the main. Darryl Olstadt took home the win with Dick Liew and Ross Gibson taking 2nd and 3rd.
Thanks to everyone who came out to make Canada’s first ever RCPro series event a huge success. The racing was great and the racers were top notch. A big thanks goes out to the RCGEARs club for the awesome facility and for one of the smoothest races ever to be held in Canada!!
