The opening race of Russian indoor season was held in Vladimir on October 24-26. A lot of drivers from different regions of Russia participated in this event.

For the first time at this event, we had some problems with overall traction. Due to common efforts our team we were able to quickly find the right setup for the conditions, and as a result we had TQ, fastest lap and overall victories in both stock and modified classes.

This race was also interesting because it was the first race when LiPo batteries were allowed. Our team didn\'t have any problems with weight distribution or placing of batteries. The T2\'008 was perfect with LiPo.

In stock class team Xray driver Alexey Butuzov was the fastest from the first qualifying round to the end of the race. Moreover, he didn\'t give any chances to his competitors and finished in all finals one lap ahead of the field. Also Alexey showed a very fast lap time 11,2 sec in stock, while
the best time in modified class was 10,8 (also established by team Xray driver Artem Lopukhin).
