The annual IRCC Airport Race took place at the Chubu International Airport in Japan. The carpet race track was set-up in the airport’s event place making it easy for foreign competitors to enter the race. A total of seven classes was run at the meeting that saw legend RC driver Masami Hirosaka attending both in the Stock Touring and 1/12 GT class. The race catered mainly for Japanese drivers but the attendance of Scotty Ernst, who not only announced several of the finals but who also attended the meeting as a driver, gave the IRCC an international touch. Another noticeable international contender was Jonathan Chia, a Singapore Airlines pilot who landed on Sunday morning and joined the race straight after. Although he missed the first day of the event, he enjoyed the race and considers to come again next year when the organisers aim to create an even more international race.
