i read this on redrc, "Today was lower finals day with the biggest casualty being 2009 World Championship runner-up Mike Swauger. Driving Xray’s new RX8 chassis the Ameican ace had a difficult qualifying ending up in the 1/16th final but easily won the 20 minute encounter from team-mate Martin Hudy to progress to the final race of the day and one step away from making it through to the big day. Feeling his clutch was starting to go Swauger planned to change it for the 1/8 final but technical inspection held his car too long leaving him just 8-minutes to get ready for his bump up. Without time to change the clutch Swauger took the start but he lasted only two laps before the clutch expired. One of the pre-event favourites Swauger said he had finally found a good set-up and it was very disappointing to go out in this way.
