RC-X Nitro Cup Driver Info Guide

Entries have finally closed for RC-X Nitro Cup and all I can say is Wow to the response that we have received for this unique annual RC event. This will be the first time running a new format that we hope will make for exciting racing and more track time for all the drivers. Spectators and drivers are in for an action packed weekend of RC fun. Great to see that we have 7 Ladies/Girls that have entered which I think is possibly the most we have ever had before. We also have a lot of youngsters that have entered showing a lot of promise for the future of the sport. The youngest driver being just 4 years old and the oldest 64 years makes it a sport that can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Please download the driver info guide from the link above and familiarize yourselves with some of the rules and procedures for the weekend. We will be posting a full heat listing on Monday. If you need any info please email us on info@zwartkopsrcx.co.za

Come Drive with Us- The Perth Worlds

Check out this great video from 5150 Productions Come Drive with Us.

Every year, IFMAR hosts a world championship race in one of the 4 blocks that make up the sanctioning body. For the 2018 worlds the “who’s who” of the R/C World were in Perth for the 1/8 Nitro World Championships. The facility was nothing short of amazing; the track, with it’s high speed and massive jumps, was equally impressive. This would be Australia’s first 1/8 worlds; how would this event compare to other championship races held over the past few years? Karting; Joes vs. Pros; watergate 2.0; rumors of gyros; Drivers getting fired; Coors; a last chance saloon; this worlds had it all! Mike Garrison is back as the voice of the series as is our usual cast of characters including Ty Tessmann, Joe Bornhorst, Elliott Boots, Adam Drake, Bruno Coelho, Adam Drake, CJ Jelin, Ryan Maifield. We also welcomed some new faces to the series, so be sure to watch this amazing episode!
