Ollie Payne does the double at Masters of Foam

In a big weekend for 1:12 racing, Britain’s Ollie Payne did the double at the Masters of Foam event in Belgium.  In qualifying, the Roche driver claimed the TQ in both Modified, ahead of Schumacher’s Markus Mobers and the Awesomatix of Patrick Hofer, and in Stock, ahead of team-mate Morgan Williams and new Awesomatix factory recruit Mark Stiles. In the finals there was no stopping Payne from continuing his domination of the Miniatuur Racing Club Zwevegem (MRCZ) hosted event. Winning the opening 2 A-mains of Mod allowing him to sit out A3, German Mobers won that encounter to finish second overall ahead of Switzerland’s Hofer. Stock was a similar affair with Payne wrapping up things after A2 but also racing A3 fellow countryman Stiles would pass him for the win in the dying moments of the 8-minute race when they came up on traffic involved in their own battle for position. The A3 win gave Stiles second overall with the podium completed by Williams. A very successful event, it has already been confirmed the Masters of Foam will return to Zwevegem in 2023.
