Last weekend saw the 4th round of the Thailand Buggy Party championship held on the grass surfaced R.C. Mania Track. Qualifying saw Kyosho racer Panit B. take the pole position for the final ahead of former National Champion Yuthana D. driving a Hobao in 2nd. In the final Panit B. could easily lead from the start but a timing error at 18 minutes meant the race had to be stopped and a second part of the final run for 12 minutes, with the results added together. This didnt seem to affect the outcome and it was man of the day Panit B. that took the win by nearly a lap from Hongnor racer Meen V. in 2nd while Yuthana D. claimed 3rd.

We were contacted by our partners at the RC Pro Series with a report from the first round of the Great Lakes Division, held in Ontario, Canada at the end of May at the Hamilton track. Here is the full report from that event.
With RC-Pro making its first venture into the Canada this was surely going to be a good race. The Can-Am Challenge has grown on its own merit in the three years the Ontario 1/8 On-Road Racing Club has been in existence. Some big names from the Midwest Series crossed the border for their first trip to the challenging layout in Hamilton. This was surely more of a Can-Am Challenge than in the previous year’s races.
The organisers of this years Futaba Nitro Challenge were in touch to let everyone know that the dates for this great event have been finalised, with the race set to take place on the 19th – 23rd of September. As with last years event, this years Nitro Challenge will be run on the HX Raceway in Bossier City, Louisiana and is expected to draw a large crowd, all hoping to get a piece of the action that saw Taylor James walk away last year with $2000 in prize money.
