New Zealand South Island Champs

New Zealand South Island Champs

The New Zealand South Island Champs for on road Gas and Electric were held recently on the Ruapuna track in Christchurch. The weather was great for the 64 entrants spread over 4 Electric classes and 3 Nitro classes. After 5 rounds of qualifying it was very close in most classes with 8th gas being the closest with the top 6 separated by only 6 seconds. Finals were on Sunday and the only classes that the TQ man didn’t convert his position to a win was the 10th 2wd gas class and the 8th gas class where it was Q2 that took the win. In the rest of the classes TQ was converted into wins in the finals.
