I saw the VRC add and it reminded me about the VRC race to the worlds winner. Thought this was interesting. He did better than I expected.



63 Kevin Pignotti IT 144 328 17 5:13.906 (99) 17 5:08.467 (117) 16 5:05.270 (81) 16 5:09.637 (68) 17 5:19.169 (X) 14 5:06.882 (112)




G 64 1/10th Kevin Pignotti 144 IT 15 48 15:29.255 (63) 18 5:11.414 (8) 17 5:17.586 (2) 18 5:17.701 (7)

In the main he managed to get within about 8 seconds of his VRC time.

Just wanted to point out for all the US drivers who moan about stick radios being out of date (Not that we care)

The world champ uses one!

And if not for some dubious passing, so would the 1/12 World champ (Andy Moore)

Just sayin'

Sidecar, that's an expression in English it means, "serves them right for what they did". It is not the literal meaning, but rather pointing out that these guys got caught for doing something wrong.

Congratulations to Jilles Groskamp for a very well deserved World Championship Title.


Out of curiosity I did some research on Jilles Groskamp and found out that he was the original Team Xray driver from 2001 through early 2008.

  • In late 2005, at the Carpet World Cup in Switzerland, Martin Hudy and Jilles Groskamp both put on a great performance with the newly designed Xray T2. Martin finished 2nd and Jilles finished 3rd after the world champion Marc Rheinard.
  • The 2008 season started out with the loss of top driver Jilles Groskamp, who switched to Team Tamiya.
This begs the question, would Jilles Grosskamp still have been the 2012 Ifmar TC World Champion if he were driving an Xray instead of Tamiya?

Now that's a rhetorical question if I've ever heard one. The only answer is "Who knows?" It's very interesting to learn about Jilles' history though.

no Jilles wouldn't be WC with Xray , the "team" of Tamiya is so well organised thay can plan what to do in every eventuallity , and thay discuss setups

The problem with Xray and Hudy they dont descuss anything as a team , they are all individuals and dont discuss set ups so much , Uwe said there is only one real "team" in the worlds and it was Tamiya and watching them it is true
