Levanen & Matsukura untouchable

Day 2 of the IFMAR Electric Onroad World Championships has come to a close and yet again the final 1:12 scale qualifier of the day saw Juho Levanen and Naoto Matsukura crush the opposition.  The Associated duo managed 1-2 in Heat 4 despite both of them dumping at the end of the run in which Levanen produced the fastest lap of the event with a blistering 11.675 second tour.  Top Qualifier in Round 3, Levanen put his dumping down to the increased traction but the Yokomo team pointed blame for their young star dumping down to the pair battling throughout the heat for the TQ.  Running 40 laps in 08:07.965 the Finn was a little under a second ahead of his Japanese team-mate despite nursing their cars to the line but such was their advantage that third place Groskamp was too far behind to capitalise and end the RC12R5’s reign in Thailand.
