F1R/C Club - Singapore GP 2012

15 September 2012 - Thanks to Allan and Arnold for the food, trophies and t-shirt. To the 27 racers who hopefully had fun. To our Lord, for despite the early floods, allowed us to race in cool conditions. And to JP Raceway for the indoor facility, rain or shine, we can have fun.

A big welcome to Manito Manego.

Above: Me (Joel aka rccartips) as race organizer. My 11 year old daughter Porsha as driver. She did well, qualifying 5th out of 27 racers using a Tamiya TEU104 speed controller.

Now let's get on with the racing.

Qualifying

As usual, qualifying is a tight affair. Hundreds of a second makes the difference between making the A-main or B-main. The top 13 racers separated by just 1.3 seconds.

Qualifying Results

There were 14 drivers in the B-main. A mix of veterans and rookies, with some rookies beating the veterans! Woohooo.
