Race Report by Jonathan Lane
The RC-Mushroom Cockburn Nitro Cup was held at the Radio Rally Club held on the 26th October 2008. The race brought 44 Buggies and 27 Truggies down to the Cockburn Fair. There were some excellent drivers there and everyone drove really well and enjoyed themselves and had a great day out racing. There were 7 XRAY XB808’s and 3 XRAY truggies, a good turn out over all.

The race format for this event was Christmas tree finals. The Buggy class had a 1/4 and Semi, so a few people missed out. For the Truggy they only had semis which meant a few people missed out as well. For qualifying we had 6 minute heats and three of them for truggy and buggy.

After qualifying we had 4 XRAY XB808’s in the top 10 and 2 Truggies in the top 10. I must say it was a great achievement for us.

John Barr suffered some engine problems in the 40 minute main causing him to retire only 15 minutes into the final, which was very unlucky! Ken Isbister didn’t have a very good start and caused him to drop down but he picked it up and finished well! Jonathan Lane had a good start and was able to get a good lead on 3rd until he was slowed by a minor mechanical issue,but still managed to go on to finish on the podium.
