Default 6 Hours MERLIN FUEL Enduro Race

Hello from France,

we raced a 6 hours race in touring car.

The Merlin Enduro Race.

MERLIN FUEL provided to all the team the 16% fuel for whole race.

It was a great race.

Here's the video of the start, much better than the start of the 24h Le Mans!!

The winning car is the NT1.



Second by only 2 laps (after 790 laps!!) is the Tamiya TG10



Au revoir

Those Frenchmen sure know how to have fun. Thats the funniest start I've ever seen.

I bet there are lots of people to see the Tamiya TG10 come in 2nd.

The winning is a Kyosho RRR Evo2/Nova 12-3SCt Race/Lola Body


The second is NT1/Rb T9Rc/Lola Body


Third is my car: NT1/RB T9Rc/Stratus Body



The difference between Lola and touring bodies is around 0.8s!!! It's amazing...

No problems with engines.
6sets of tyres (1hour a run - shore F42 and R45)

Au revoir.
