Nicolson leads Yokomo 1-2 at QLD State Championships

Simon Nicolson lead a Yokomo 1-2 at the 2022 Speedy RC Queensland State Championships over the weekend taking the title from fellow international electric touring car racer Antoni Caretti.  Held at England Park Raceway in Brisbane, overnight rain on the Friday meant drivers faced completely different track conditions for the start of qualifying. Despite adapting his car set-up to the track during qualifying, Nicolson was able to take the first of the five qualifiers from Caretti and ARC driver Jeffery Mackie.  He would also TQ Rounds 3 & 4 to secure the overall TQ.  Fastest in Q2 and 5, Mackie would secure second on the grid from Caretti.  The finals would be a Nicolson clean sweep securing him the title.  With Caretti second in A1 from Mackie, and that order reversed in A2, the third final would decide which side of the podium they would join Nicolson.  Caretti again got by Mackie, finishing 1.5-seconds behind the winner in A3 to take second overall.
