Marc Rheinard wins Reedy Race of Champions

Marc Rheinard wins Reedy Race of Champions

The Reedy Race of Champions was held last weekend at Nor-Cal hobbies in Union City, CA. Featuring a unique racing format with a grueling 8 rounds of heat races normally consisting of 4 rounds of racing per day., all races began with random starting position and ended with points associated to each driver for their finish position. The overall winner was determined by the lowest tally of the best out of 6 finishes as drivers were able to throw out their worst (highest) 2 scores. This year the weather did not cooperate with the four rounds of heats per day. On day one, the rain delayed a few heats and then washed out round 4 leaving day two for 5 rounds of competition instead of the normal four.  Team Thunder Power RC’s newest signing Marc Rheinard, driving a Tamiya TRF417 battled his way to the Championship title, while his Thunder Power RC team mate Victor Wilck kept the pressure on to finish 2nd. Former World Champion Atsushi Hara, driving a Hot Bodies TCX took 3rd.
