Thank you to Coco for the
photos and blow by blow commentary below.
Oldskul took the top with an early blistering run of 19.58 on the first
5 mins of the qualifying session. Second was Cocojam with a run of
19.83 on the second lap of a last minute run before the end of the 30
min qualis. Dennis came in third with a good run of 19.87. Race
favorite Norman was struggling to improve his pace but only managed to
come up with a mid-20 sec qualifying time.

F103, F104 and F201 radio control cars line up for the 2012 Spanish GP
of the F1 R/C Club.
Oldsku and Badboy were neck to neck from start to finish while Cocojam,
dropping from 2nd to 6th at the early stage of the race, manage to
salvage 3rd after a consistent and accident free run.
Badboy avenged his loss to Oldskul in the first heat with a consistent
run and a blistering pace of 18.85 which was the fastest lap recorded
for the day. Despite some mistakes that pushed him to take a
conservative driving stance, Oldskul still finished second. Newbie
Dennis D. put up the pace this time and ended up with good 3rd finish
despite having a nearly chipped-off front foam tire.

Oldskul and Badboy were at each others throats again from start to
finish. Vets Cocojam and Norman were nowhere in sight as they were
bogged down by handling problems and accidents. The tag team of Dennis
and Gabe M. took advantage of this and finished 3rd and 4th,
It's amazing to see how
close we all are now in qualifying despite the variety in chassis and
driver experience. Our rules are working.
And we now have a new drivers championship points leader. The season is
still long, every position is up for grabs.
Thanks to all the racers
and see you next month at the F1 RC
Cars - Spanish Grand Prix 2012.
