F1R/C Club - Korea GP 2012

21 October 2012 - Our Gangnam style version of the Korea GP. F1 rc racing should be all about fun after all.

Video highlight of the event. Dance battle between B-main and A-main drivers. Pace car warmup laps, start of A-main, and track racing action.

As organizer, I was very happy to see 5 young kids playing and racing radio controlled f1 cars. Youngest was only 7 years old, and he never crashed his car even once. Hope to see more kids join in on the fun. Better to be hooked on r/c than other things.

So happy to see Kiko and Paco join the last six F1RC Club races. And congrats to Kiko for winning B-main race number 2. Though beginners, they are improving very quickly.

A big welcome back to Rey Parco with his Tamiya F201 and Wolf Racing.

Ted Flores started the season with a 3Racing F109. Then a Sakura FGX. And now with a Tamiya F104.

To keep things as real as possible, the layout in JP Raceway was changed to simulate the Korea Grand Prix F1 track. Unique was the straightaway that ran diagonal from top right to middle left part of the track.

The rookie championship race is heating up. Carlos currently in third. With 125 points still up for grabs, the championship is still wide open.
