JConcepts Super Cup Rd5 short course report

With a reported weather storm on the radar, a quick change of itinerary from Coral Springs to Treasure Coast Raceway made round 5 of the Super Cup even more exciting. With this being a make-up and additional race to the 2010 series, drivers were hyped and ready for action on the technical Treasure Coast track. Huge thanks to both the Coral Springs club and Treasure Coast Speedway for their constant effort and support of the racers in Florida. In the Pro 2 stock SCT class, it was a battle between the points leader Jimmie Cooper and Craig Lowe. Cheston VanAlstyne put his Kyosho truck in the TQ position but a problem forced him out of contention early leaving Jimmie and Craig to battle things out. Craig reigned supreme and earned his 1st win on the 2010 Super Cup series. Jimmie Cooper finished in 2nd with Aaron Wood rounding out the top 3.

Open Short Course race in Celle/Germany

Last weekend saw an open class short course race at the astro turf out door off-road track in Celle, Northern Germany, which took place as part of a northern division regional electric off-road race. The class was dominated by Lennart Sulzbach and his Associated SC10 as he not only TQ’ed but also won the first and second A-main. Second place went to Ulrich Wartmann (Associated SC10) in front of Jörg Heise (Associated SC10). The next three places all went to HPI’s Blitz SC truck with Stefan Wolter, Matze Axmann and Marina Maiwald on 4th to 6th place. Young Matti Breitrück grabbed 7th spot with a Losi Strike SC truck. The high traction astro turf surface made set-up crucial and most of the drivers opted to use harder compound stock tyres in combination with a reduced ride height.
