2014 International Indoor Championships – Report

2014 International Indoor Championships – Report

The 10th annual International Indoor Championships was held at the Riviera Hotel & Casino located on the Las Vegas strip this past weekend. More than 400 entries, the biggest entry count in a while, split in many different electric on-road classes. The temporary carpet track laid out was a bit bigger than the previous years with grip levels rising quickly and getting very high. Many drivers made their way over directly from the IFMAR World Championships, making for busy travelling schedules. Qualifying in the premier class of Touring Car Modified therefore was an extremely close affair as Ronald Völker took TQ just 3 tenths of a second in front of Alexander Hagberg, and Paul Lemieux in 3rd, a few more tenths back.

In the final Alexander was challenging Ronald throughout the race, and the Swede managed to set the quickest lap of the entire event as well, but in the end it was not enough as Ronald made no mistakes for those 5 minutes and Alex had to settle for 2nd place, with Paul on 3rd.
