Another win for Awesomatix, and me :-) ... in Canada this time ! An amazingly well run three day trophy event with 230 total entries, 100 drivers , and specifically 36 in the stock touring class. Victoria BC - Trophy Race. IROCC Speed Weekend Carpet Edition 2013.
Additionally, and even more impressive, was that the three A700’s there were 1,2,3 on the grid after qualifying ! Some solid talent made the main anyones race.
From third on the grid ( single main ), I drove a nearly perfect race , quickly took the lead then drove somewhat conservatively to ensure the win. My other goal was to not harm the other two Awesomatix cars in the process which I was able to do as well.
I used one of Steen’s seutps provided by Oleg ( thank you STEEN ! ). Korgae, the other team driver explained to me that he and his friend Frank used a version of Dominic’s setup that Oleg adjusted. Frank was driving very well in qualifying and put down the TQ run in the fourth and final qualifier. He ended up second.

WCICS Round 4 - Victoria, IROCC/NRC Speed Weekend CE, Jan 4-6 2013
My impression and the results showed that Dominics Adjusted by Oleg setup was about .1 per lap faster than the Steen setup that I used but it is hard to tell without back to back testing, taking into consideration any HP differences too.
One of the hosts of the event will be posting video of the main which I hope to share soon. I intend to try Dominics Adjusted/Corrected by Oleg setup soon since my gut feeling is that it was faster , at least for the conditions at this race.
edit. here is a link to the video. Cars 1 and 2 on the grid were using the Dominic adjusted by Oleg setup and I was using something Steen suggested.
The grid for Stock Touring is set at the 21 minute mark.
btw, Only one set of Jaco Blue tires were allowed for the entire event. This restriction was something I had never experienced.
Awesomatix is showing some serious momentum ! Many thanks to Oleg for providing such a fun car to drive that is also a mechanical marvel to anyone that sees it.
Congratulations to Karl, Max, and Patrick too !!!
