Last weekend at the Purmerend artificial surface track in the Netherlands was the revenge race of the Germany versus Holland event, that last year was taken by Holland. This years race was held under changing weather and some good drivers from both countries were in attendance to battle for their country’s pride. The race saw some close fights throughout the field but in the end it was Daniel Reckward that took the win, followed closely by Tim Bremicker in 2nd while 3rd spot went to Marcell Guske and these positions were enough to give the win for Germany.
We have been asked to mention the release of the Hurrax Crypton 4wd 1/5th scale buggy. After more than 2 years of development and testing the company is proud to present a completely new product, which sets new standards for durability, power train layout and variability. An artful, tried and tested all-wheel-drive concept in an exceptional quality and an excellent handling. The chosen mix of materials shows a great combination of power to weight ratio and durability, therefore the plastic parts are made of many different materials depending on their use.

More 1/8th scale body shells, this time from Japanese firm Honest who have released 2 new versions, a Lola T92 and Lola EX. The Lola EX is your standard high downforce affair that fits easily on most 1/8th scale on road chassis’, while the Laura T92 is the second body to be seen this week with a cockpit in place of the driver. I don’t believe that either have been so far approved for racing but if you still want one, they are available now.
