RC Racing

Luzon Island 2010 R/C Car Racing Championship

Held every 3 years, the 4th Luzon Island RC championship was in Pacific Mall, NE. Up for grabs was Concours, EP Stock Silvercan, EP Stock Mini, EP Superstock and GP Touring.

6 March - 10:30am (Saturday)

After a 3-1/2 hour drive, finally arrived at the venue in a parking lot of the Pacific Mall. Here is a picture of the pit area.

And here is a picture of the big track. It would be a challenge as it was bumpy and dusty. Grip was very low.

The Luzon 2010 R/C Track

Opening ceremonies started at 1pm, followed by the Councours D' Elegance (touring, mini and best of show). Below are the entries.

R/C Bodies Concours Entry

Mine is the red Hummer on a Tamiya M05 mini chassis. Just something to be different.

Next was 3 sets of qualifiers. With my wife running EP Stock Silvercan and myself in the Mini and EP Superstock class, it was a hectic afternoon for me. Qualifiers ended around 6pm. Went to a local SOGO hotel to take a shower then went back to the track for the drivers party (beer, food, music). Ended the night around 10:30pm.

7 March  - 8:30am

Got to the track early to setup the cars for one last qualifier. My mini Hummer managed 2nd on the grid in the Mini class. I think I qualified 4th in the EP Superstock. My wife Ges I think in 9th in Silvercan.

Old Time Friends and Racers

In the end it was more that just the racing, but a chance to spend two days with friends. Music, food, entertainment and r/c racing... a great weekend!

The Results

Though I did not win any of the mains, I was lucky enough to win the raffle, a Teampowers 13.5T brushless motor. The Hummer also luckily took the Best in Show concours award against very beautiful r/c car bodies.
