Last weekend (23-24.5.2015) team EuroRC participated in two races. In Turku the first 1/8 electric race of the season was held in the Finnish Open series. In Finland there are two 1/8 off-road series. Finnish open which is more casual club racing and then the national series. The electric class has really grown the last years and is now as large as the nitro in Finland with expectations of it to grow bigger this summer.

Joel Valander one of our promising young guns brought his Hobbywing powered XRAY XB8E to the race. New to 1/8 racing he had never raced this track and struggled some in practice and qualifying and adjusting to the style of racing 1/8. Starting 6th on the grid with a total of 3 XRAYs in the finals. But A1 started with huge mistake which left him last after the first lap. Playing catchup the rest of the final he finished 3rd. A2 and A3 went smooth and zero mistakes secured him the win in both. Winning A2 with 1 lap and A3 with a 8s gap. Taking home the podium in style. Joel comments the race afterwards:

“I had some close racing with fast local guys. Hobbywing powered XRAY XB8E 2015 was dialed. No broken parts no setup changes, just charging the batteries. Looking forward to 1/8 National series. Huge thanks to EuroRC and my other sponsors!”

The podium:

1. Valander Joel – XRAY XB8E
