McBride exploits drying track to head Kyosho 1-2

McBride exploits drying track to head Kyosho 1-2

Kyle McBride exploited a drying track to TQ the fifth round of qualifying at the 1:8 Offroad World Championships, the Australian heading a Kyosho 1-2 from team-mate Elliott Boots. A wet start to the final day of qualifying in Sicily, the round starting with Group 11 to 14 and 1 back through 10, running together in Heat 5, the last of the fast groups, McBride and the 2012 Worlds Top Qualifier took advantage of an ever improving track to put their MP9s top of the times, a much anticipated TQ challenge from Agama’s Jeremy Kotz in Heat 10 on a completely dry track failing to materialise.  With the changing conditions producing a completely unpredictable Top 16, a third for the round sees the ever consistent Lee Martin move into the provisional TQ position counting four rounds with one qualifier left to run.  The man to beat on a dry equal conditions track bagged three TQ runs from the opening three rounds, Ty Tessmann would again suffer badly with the timing of his heat, the rain returning for the start of his Heat 3, leaving the Canadian with only the 23rd fastest time.
