Craig Drescher got the first ever FTQ in the British National series (BRCA) at the Snetterton Circuit which is a fast 'Island' style circuit.

I'm not sure if he uses the same equipment all the time or if it's a track by track choice.

Default 2005 Reedy Champion

Craig Dresher won the 2005 Reedy Race running FT TC4 w/ Novak 5.5R Brushless system. For 2006, at the Worlds in Italy, 25% of drivers used brushless systems, and about 3 of 10 in the A-Mains.
