In 1/10 Ep Stock Championship, powered with 13.5T stock motors and just-stock ESC, Ahmet Kasap has performed a good week with T4 but win was very difficult since there were strong competition from Ali Kaya, Poyraz Serezlioğlu and Berk Öğretmen. Ali was unlucky due to his university entrance exams, he missed first race of A-main. Solid performance of Ahmet helped him to win the title! 2nd place went to 12years old talent Poyraz ahead his team mate Berk Öğretmen!
