Walter Diaz wins ROAR Region 12 Championships

Walter Diaz wins ROAR Region 12 Championships

Last weekend saw the ROAR Nitro Sedan Region 12 Championship hosted by the Greater L.A. RC in the Artesia Transit Center. A very popular race, there were drivers from Las Vegas and Northern California in attendance. The track was on excellent conditions and the weather couldn’t be better in Southern California. The qualifiers on Saturday saw Kyosho Driver Walter Diaz set the overnight TQ, having some run time issues with 16 laps in 4:56, but in the final qualifier on Sunday it was a very close ending with Kyosho drivers Palazzola and Fisher having the exact same time and Diaz with a good pace, but once again was unable to finish due to run time issues. So the top 3 was Michael Palazzola who took the TQ honors, followed by Scott Fisher and Walter Diaz. The main was really close between these 3 drivers, Diaz took the lead in the first few laps and was followed closely by Palazzola, with Fisher running into some small problems that left him behind. Due to different pit strategies the lead of the race changed several times between Diaz and Palazzola, and it was with less than 1 minute to the end thay they were racing for the win. Unfortunately Palazzola had some problems when he tried to make a pass on a back marker that caused the end of his race with few laps to go. Walter Diaz could then cruise the last few laps to take the Victory ahead of Mugen driver Robbie Collins and Michael Palazzola in third to complete the podium.

Thanks to Walter Diaz for the report.
