TLR Series Sunday at Orange Country R/C Raceway

Race: TLR Series, Round 3
Track: OCRC Raceway
Dates: February 19th, 2012
Format: 2 IFMAR Rounds, Single 5 minute A-Mains

Team Losi Racing and Losi's Frank Root and Ryan Dunford were on hand at the 3rd round of the TLR Series Sunday at Orange Country R/C Raceway (OCRC).  The track had fantastic traction and a very fast layout.  The entry count was very strong at over 110 and a great day of racing was had by all.

2wd Modified Buggy – There were 2 heats of modified buggy and the qualifying action was intense.  Frank Root had a great run going in the first round, but a late mistake would drop him from a possible TQ to 5th. The second round saw Frank show the same speed from round 1 and keep it clean throughout to take a strong TQ by over 4 seconds.  When the tone went off, Root jumped out to a quick start to gap the field.  About 4 minutes in, Frank had a slight interaction with traffic,  and surrendered the lead.  He would battle wheel to wheel for the next 3 laps, and took the lead for good with 1 lap to go.  After regaining the lead, Frank would make it by for his 16th lap, and cruise home for the win.

Pro4 (Modified SC) – Ryan’s Losi Ten-SCTE equipped with the TLR Tuned Kit was untouchable all day.  Ryan would take the TQ in both rounds of qualifying, earning the overall TQ by almost 10 seconds!  Ryan started on form at the sound of the tone and quickly pulled out from the field,  leaving the battle for 2nd place.  Doug “Casper” Nielsen also had a strong run finishing on the podium in 3rd, but the day belonged to Ryan with a statement TQ and Win!
