TITC 2012 - Fast and Furious RC Cars
The 2012 Thailand International Touring Car Championship saw some of the fastest electric rc cars racing on the large R/C Addict race track. With all world champions in attendance (i.e. Hara, Surikarn, Moore, Rheinard) this was indeed the biggest racing event in Asia for 2012.
Racers from all over the world gathered in the very hot Thailand. Germany, Australia, Philippines, China, Malaysia, Great Britain, USA, Canada are some of the countries represented.

Main entrance to the huge RC Addict Circuit. There are two hobby shops selling Tamiya, XRAY, RIDE and other products. On the second floor is a bar/restaurant and the airconditioned VIP rooms.
Another perspective. So many spectators watching the A-main of the Modified class. Among the drivers were Hara, Moore, Rheinard and Groskamp. High caliber racing. Fastest of the fast.
The rc cars. Classes where Open Brushless (13.5T SpeedPassion motors), TC Modified (including factory drivers), FWD, Mini and Formula One.

My daughter Porsha with the Tamiya 417x of TRF and 3-times World Champion Marc Rheinard.
Marc kind enough to let Porsha sit in his chair while Jilles helps in setting up her car.
Tamiya TRF driver Jilles Groskamp giving Porsha some tips.
Porsha with her 1/10 Sakura Zero Hello Kitty rc car for the Open Brushless 13.5T class. She also raced in the Modified class with my Tamiya 416WE.
One of the youngest competitors in the event. Surprised to see her run pretty competitive lap times.
Checking the results after each race. Best 4 out of 6 qualifiers.
The beautiful trophies. Maybe next year Porsha.
Sitting next to me was Perry Leung. Here is his 1/10 Gambada mini rc car which came 2nd overall.
Tamiya M05 mini rc car with an interesting white/clear lipo battery case.
High level competition. The A-main drivers. Notice the three past champions (Rheinard, Hara, Moore) next to each other.
World champs doing marshalling. Andy Moore, Jilles Groskamp and Marc Rheinard.
The Philippine team. Taka, Porsha, Anton, Gerome, Gerry, Mikey, Jason, Rolly, Felix and Noel.
It was a truly memorable event for me and my daughter. Hope
the video and photos entice you to join next year. See you!
