Race report by Jan Ratheisky
Last weekend the RC community started the year at the well-known DHI Cup in Odense - Denmark. This time I was more or less "just" allowed to start in 3 classes so I choose TC Stock / mod and 4wd off-road.

In practice, Scott and I tried some small setup changes which ended in some very well working cars. 2nd in stock and 4th in mod. Some crazy notice: In the stock class I liked the alu flex chassis this weekend very much but in mod I choose the carbon as it worked the best.

The qualification worked out a lot better for me than I expected and I was able to set my first TQ in the Stock class and a good 6th place in mod. Also my 3D racing skills are getting a little better and it brings me up to 6th in the B main. Yea :) Alex put his T4 on the 4th position despite he had the same points as the 3rd driver.

The finals:
Stock:
With some crashes behind me I could more or less cruise to the win in all the mains which resulted in my first ever DHI Cup win in the stock class!

Mod:
More or less I was able to play with some pros. A little bad luck in all the finals set me on the 7th spot in the end. Next year... game on guys!

Off-road:
Very happy with my result to end up in the B main I still have to learn very much. Some laps I just missed the jump point with fatally ends in flipping :) However... A very funny class and I hope to be able to improve myself up to the next year.

See you at the next event guys!
