Dustin Evans doubles at Lunsford Race

Dustin Evans doubles at Lunsford Race

North West Hobbies hosted the 1st ever Lunsford Race in Albany, Oregon to celebrate one of the most influential individuals in the hobby today, Kelly “Mr. Titanium” Lunsford of Lunsford Racing. Like the metal, he’s no ordinary personality and after a quick chat you’ll come to realize what a stand up individual he is. Positive, light-hearted, and always willing to help, he’s given more to this sport than ever asked of. Because this was the 1st ever Lunsford Race, a few special guests were invited to make this event even more spectacular. TLR/Orion drivers Ryan Maifield and Dustin Evans were scheduled to come, but because of sickness Maifield wasn’t able to make it however the former nation champion Dustin Evans did.

JConcepts Smoothies 1/10th buggy slick tyres

JConcepts Smoothies 1/10th buggy slick tyres

JConcepts introduce the Smoothies 1/10th buggy slick tyres. In some conditions in off-road racing slick tyres are the fastest way around the track. In damp weather, indoor clay surfaces become so tacky that the lower the tread or to the point of zero tread is an advantage. For years drivers have sanded, ground and hand sculpted tires in search of that elusive slick carcass for racing. Released as a 60mm bead mounting diameter, the JConcepts Smoothies mount straight to the latest generation wheels for that all important reactive feel. The carefully profiled tyre carcass rolls through the turns with efficiency while the maximum smooth surface area grips the surface. The tyres include Dirt-Tech 60mm inserts and they are available as 2WD front end 2WD/4WD rear tyre in Gold compound.

Tasos Paparegas wins Greek Buggy Championship

Tasos Paparegas wins Greek Buggy Championship

The final round of the Greek 1/8th Off-Road Championship was held at the Zorri track in Athens in sunny and hot weather conditions. Tasos Pagaregas took the TQ for the finals but he had to battle against some very fast local drivers who would also put some massive pressure on him in the 45 minute final. Right from the start Makropoulos, Tsigkos and Perogianakis, who were the podium finishers of a race held the week before, chased Tasos hard who suffered a major problem after the second pitstop when a stone got stuck between a front arm and the chassis. Tasos drove that way for at least 10 minutes and he lost the lead after building an 11 second gap. Later in the race Tasos had to protect his spot against Zagorisos, who had worked his way up coming from 10th on the grid. Then, at the 25 minute mark, Tasos heavily crashed his car into the barriers after a driving error but the stone that blocked the suspension got loose and he was able to work his way up again to take the win in front of Zagorisos in 2nd and Makropoulos in 3rd place. The win at the final round of the championship handed Tasos the overall title with his brother John taking the runner-up spot.
