Rc Pro South Division Rd1 dominated by Tekin power!
RC Pro Series South Round 1 was hosted by 439 Raceway in Belton, Tx. A relatively new track that no one had been to before, the surface started out smooth then quickly started to rut up. Friday the 15th was open practice. Saturday consisted of 4 Quals using Qual points.
Tekin powered Brian Henn managed to take the overall TQ in Pro 4 SC. Tekin teammate David Joor would take the Overall Tq for the 1/8 Pro E Buggy class with Henn 3rd.
Sunday was main day. In A1 of Pro 4 SC Henn would lead the whole race, till the last lap where 2nd caught up to me and tapped me, some good racer ettique gave me the spot back where we’d finish. In A2, Henn would lead the main until a minute to go where a small bobble would give 2nd the opportunity to take the lead forcing Henn to settle for 2nd in A2. It would come down to A3. Henn would blast out from his Tq position leading from lap 1 never looking back taking the Pro 4 SC class win! Brian would choose the Tekin RX8 and Pro 4 4600 combo in my Losi SCTE.
Pro 1/8 E-Buggy A’s. In A1 Tekin powered TQ David Joor would simply checked out. Teammate Henn was running 2nd up till the last minute where 2 mistakes would allow 2nd and 3rd around him giving him 4th in A1. In A2 Joor had a small bobble at the start but would once again check out on the field. Henn had a rough start but would fight back to take a 3rd. In A3 TQ Joor would sit out since he had the overall win wrapped up. 2nd Qualifier Jake Dellinger took the lead and never looked back. Henn once again had 2 wrecks that costing him. Henn would catch 2nd Mike Battaile but would run out of time settling for 3rd. When it was all over, David Joor took the overall win, Dellinger 2nd, Battaile 3rd, and myself 4th.
