Love the V8 it's amazing! But I do think the radio plate looks horrid!

The car is a winner though and very very well engineered and I wouldn't run another car if they were paying me.

You can watch the finals back at rcracing.tv.

It was that Mark Green made a huge mistake or else he had won the EC. Not only because of that it is a bit wrong to say the Velox is the best car but it is the whole package of driver, car, setup skils, engine, fuel....

Dear Roelof,

nobody said that the Velox is "the best car". But for sure it's capable of winning a big race which was proved last weekend and therefore it's necessary to have a good basic performance. Of course other factors are also important.

On the other hand you can't be sure that Mark would have won the EC without the mistake as the race was very close at that time. Addtionally Jilles had much more tyres left in the final laps as he changed much later. At the end he just drove as fast as necessary to keep Kyle away. Maybe he could have been faster, maybe not. Maybe Mark made the mistake because his car was too difficult to drive, maybe not... a lot of unnecessary speculations.

In any way, we are very happy to claim the first major title with Velox V8 Pro and we received a lot of congratulations also from other manufacturers.

@1evo:
we already think about how to improve the design of the radioplate

Best regards
Patrick
