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.
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.
There were 14 drivers in the B-main. A mix of veterans and rookies, with some rookies beating the veterans! Woohooo.
Trying to figure out how to grid 14 rc cars.
And the trophy goes to Team FGX Rodil! Congrats!
And great job by the kids, Kiko (8th) and Paco (10th). Wearing the new F1R/C Club of the Philippines T-shirt designed by Allan Colico.
Congrats to Taka, Gerome Ling and Leo.
Winner was Yuichiro Takaya driving a Tamiya F104 v2. Beating all chassis, include the F103s.
2nd goes to Gerome Ling.
3rd goes to Leo Virtusio.
Below is the winning car, a 1/10 Tamiya F104 v2. Driver was so good he beat all cars, including the Tamiya F103s.
And last but not the least, the birthday boys, together again!
