    It is 1/10 Electric Off-Road, one of the most popular international RC classes.

    Kyle Ward-McBride - 9th (good chance for A-Main for 2WD)
    Chris Sturdy - 20th
    Josh Pain - 25
    Ray Munday - 26 (No 1 son)
    Mitchell Steer - 31

    Lachlan Munday - 60 (11yo grandson - aimed to get in top 100 - exceeding expectations!)
    Jarrod Smith - 64
    Chris Mitchell - 72
    There are 118 entrants so the Aussies are doing pretty well, to say the least.

    LiveRC is free, but with ads. A$40 to register with no ads.

    Anyway, if interested, give it a go.

    2WD comp completed Tues 14/11.
    I spent most of the day glued to LiveRC following the event.
    Aussies did well, Kyle Ward-McBride first Aussie to get into A-Mains (top 10)

    My boys did an excellent job, Ray 25th overall - his best result at that level of competition.
    Grandson Lachlan exceeded expectation of top 100 to finish 62nd from 118 entrants.
    I have to put up video of his run in the G-Main final (qual 61-70), it was a beauty. He is the green/white car starting in 3rd off the grid. Part way through he does a speccy trying to double jump one section, watch for it in the instant replays. Remember the kid is only 11 yo running against much older young men. This is typical RC Offroad action.

    4WD (faster) competition starts Thursday, Quals Friday, Finals Saturday.

    Cheers, Fordman.

    Well done Aussies and Fordman tribe. There is something to say about a 11 year old's hand to eye coordination vs 40+ year old. In Europe they have just created a new class for 40+ drivers for next year's touring championship. Now that's just asking for trouble!

    they did do well Chris, had my heart in my mouth a few times in the spinouts and collisions as your 11 year old completed his round, I wonder about the intervention of the officials as a few seconds delay in righting the racer can have a large effect on the finish sequence.

    One hell of a concentration of effort and co-ordination. Well done.

    Yes, the actions of the marshalls can certainly affect the outcome, just something that the kids/men/girls have to learn is a fact of life, I think the sport is good for learning tolerance and that "sh#t happens".

    Unfortunately, young Lachie lost that race by flipping on a hole in the track on the last lap, between two marshalling points - only a few seconds lost, but that was first place! He also got to the front by opposition crashes/spins so it balances out.

    BTW, the marshalls are the competitors from the previous race. Part of the sport is having to marshall the race after yours. There is a bit of peer pressure there not to stuff up!

    But it is good fun!

    The 2WD Competition finished on Tuesday, with the World Championship being decided by the best 2 of 3 finals run by the top 10 qualifiers.

    First A-main Final - 2WD:
    https://youtu.be/uFEdCxNvAIc
    Second A-main Final - 2WD:
    https://youtu.be/W9HHcWMcsYQ
    Third A-main Final - 2WD:
    https://youtu.be/W9HHcWMcsYQ

    Now for the 4WD comp:
    As at tonight (Friday) there have been 4 rounds of 4WD qualifying, with one more qualifier before the Finals tomorrow.
    My boys are holding their own, son will end up qualifying about 30th and grandson about 60th of 118 entrants.

    It will be running pretty well all day Saturday (11.00am - 8.00pm AEDT approx) - if you are interested go to LiveRC.com, select "Live".

    It's keeping me busy watching it anyway. The live video is subject to the Chinese "Great Firewall" apparently, but the live leaderboard is reliable.

    Cheers
    Fordman.

    The 4WD finals concluded last Saturday, they had a bit of rain delaying the proceedings, and 5th round of qualifying was cancelled. The finals were held on a fairly greasy track which added to the difficulty for everybody, but they got the meeting finished before darkness set in. Ryan Maifield won the 4WD World Champ, completing the double with his 2WD win, not a very common occurrence.

    My boys also did well in the 4WD comp, son qualified 32nd, grandson qual 66th out of 118 competitors. A bad race for Ray and he ended up 38th, still a good result. Young Lachie held his position at 66th, had a great start but tangled with another car, bent a shock absorber shaft (which locked his LHF suspension), and slipped back to his starting position, but again, a fantastic result for the young fella.

    Concourse photos and Aussie team:
    (Lachie's car at front was one of 3 selected for Concourse trophy - came second - kudos to their friend who air brushes the paint job on the polycarbonate bodies - some will recognize the Minecraft theme)
