IS IT OVER? Yeah we have an new/old European Champion!

So the EFRA 1:8 Electric European Championship is over!

1. David Ronnefalk (SWE)
2. Davide Ongaro (ITA)
3. Alex Zanchettin (ITA)

Check the race results and full race data.

The Sunday finals were unexpectedly boring especially considering the drama on Friday and Saturday. As promised We the organizers did our best on Sunday and no matter the heavy rain the night before we brought the track in acceptable condition.

First place after a dominating drive in first 2 rounds was taken by David Ronnefalk (SWE).  The second place goes to Davide Ongaro (ITA) who didn’t have the speed to threaten Ronnefalk but was clearly faster than the rest of the pack. The 3’rd place goes to Alex Zanchettin (ITA) after a thrilling fight with Martin Wollanka. After the first 2 runs they were tied in points but in the last run Alex finished in front of Martin and by doing so secured the third place.

Thank to all drivers and their team for coming and competing. Also a bit thanks to RC Racing TV for live coverage (PS. when coming next time do not bring the rain with you ). And the largest thanks to all our staff, friends and family who helped us to run this event no mater the terrible weather, we couldn’t do it without you!

BAD WEATHER, organization mistakes, qualifying drama

First I would like to apologize to all drivers in name of organizers for any organization mistakes we may have made today. We are aware of the mistakes and will do better tomorrow, but we are not responsible for the bad weather and resulting driving conditions.

Tomorrow we will start working on the track much earlier and we prepared a big supply of sawdust. Unfortunately even with sawdust if the rain persists you will have to su** it up and deal with the muddy conditions.

Guys it’s the EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP and not a club race so why are you afraid to get your car dirty? Honestly the whole Croatian team was shocked when we noticed that the top drivers decided not to run, even more because almost all lower ranked drivers decided to drive no matter the muddy conditions!

For the unaware, the provisional washing facility was behind the tent the whole time! The drivers that noticed it got their cars rinsed in 5 min! Lot of guys washed the cars with electrics still on the car and as far I know nobody had any problems.

If you have any questions or need help please don’t be shy and ask anybody from the Croatian team. We all speak fluent English and will try our best to help you out.

Btw. check my car that ran in group 3. I got it clean in 30 min with rinsing. Don’t be a drama queen 😛

HARD AT “WORK”

First day is over. Unfortunately rain has shortened the planed practice runs but it also enabled us to fix the track and even strengthen the surface (no watering).

We are now *HARD* at work to prepare the track for tomorrow qualifying runs.

WE ARE READY!

Track is all prepared and we are just putting finishing touches on the accompanied facilities for the 2017 EFRA 1:8 Offroad Electric European Championship. First drivers are already in and are checking out the track.
