Francesco Tironi wins 200mm Pre Worlds

The Pre Worlds for 1/10th 200mm took place this weekend at RC Addict in Bangkok Thailand, where the IFMAR Worlds will be held next November. The weather was hot and rain disrupted the action during the event, but in the end it was the TQ master Robert Pietsch, reigning 1/8th World Champion, that took the top spot in qualifying ahead of Italian Francesco Tironi with Paphon C and Chavit S completing the top 4. In the semis Jilles Groskamp went out with radio problems so while he had pace he wasn’t given the chance to show it. In the final Pietsch got a clean start but technical problems hit the Mugen driver and he was out of contention, elevating Tironi to the lead where he would stay to take the win for Capricorn ahead of Xray driver Dirk Wischnewski in 2nd, some 7 seconds back, while Paphon C completed the podium 2 laps further back also with an Xray.
