Race Report by TOP RC
XRS Slovenia 2018/19 finished with RD4 race at the Genius Ring facility in Medeuzza.

This year the driving direction was this time clockwise.
Drivers from 6 different countries – Austria, Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Italy and Slovenia came to the last event of the series with Such great names, such as the world champion Jan Ratheisky.

We ran 2 categories: 1/10 F1 21.5 and 1/10 Touring 13.5…all using controlled XRS motors and HUDY tires which worked perfectly through the whole event.

On Saturday we had free practice with ongoing tech support and product presentation during the day with the addition of the XRAY live workshop which started at 19.00. We made a nice live streaming with Jan Ratheisky and Matej Dobnikar regarding the new features on the XRAY cars and other interesting topics.

Sunday after the briefing we started with qualifying. In the TC 13.5 the pole went to Jan Ratheisky, followed by Matej Dobnikar and Fabio Ghilotti...all 3 drivers using XRAY T4 cars.

In finals, it was a great battle between Jan, Matej and Andrea, but since Jan was starting on pole, he closed the door very good, so it was impossible to pass him and he won the first two finals. It was to be decided between Matej and Andrea in the last round, but they were racing on the limit and mistakes can happen. After a collision, Rok Rudl took the opportunity and won the last final, which gave him the 3nd place at the end and Andrea would come as the runner up. Matej eventually dropped to fourth place.
