Adam Drake doubles at The Dirt Rio

Adam Drake doubles at The Dirt Rio

The inaugural “The Dirt Rio” took place at the AMA-UFRJ facility in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The facility was founded in 2004 with its focus on airplanes. In 2012, the club built an off-road track with the help of Hobby21’s owner Leandro. The event hosted driver’s from seven different countries and The Dirt crew build a fun layout that made for great racing. The event kicked off with practice Friday night, followed by one round of controlled practice on Saturday morning. Qualification points were used to set-up the finals using driver’s three best runs out of the four rounds of qualifying. TLRacing/Novarossi/Pro-Line driver Adam Drake was the top qualifier in 1/8th nitro buggy and nitro truck. In the truck final Adam was able to take the victory with his 8ight-T 2.0 equipped. The buggy class also saw a clean sweep of Adam as he easily took the win in front of the competition.

Thanks to Adam Drake for sending the report.
