Naoto Matsukura crowned JMRCA Nitro Buggy Champ

Naoto Matsukura crowned JMRCA Nitro Buggy Champ

The Futaba Buggy Track in the Japanese Chiba prefecture played host to last weekend’s JMRCA 1/8th Nitro Off-road National Championships. It was a mixed weekend in terms of weather with the final day holding occasional rain but the 1-hour main final would be held on a maintained track and in dry conditions. Multiple electric class World Champion, Naoto Matsukura (Kyosho/O.S.) excelled even at the wheel of a gas-powered vehicle and took the TQ honours. In the final he jumped into the lead instantly and never looked back to take the title in a very controlled manner. At the end he grabbed the national title one lap ahead of multiple national champion, Kazuya Tanaka (Kyosho/Reds Racing) while up and coming Yusuke Sugiura (Kyosho/O.S.), a rival Naoto’s in EP racing and in his maiden GP buggy racing year, completed the podium result in third.
