Australia's Bernadzik Takes Buggy Double at S.E. Queensland Interclub
Last weekend Dad and I attended the running of round three of the South East Queensland Interclub Series held at L.O.R.R.C.C.C., The Brickyard track in Brisbane, Australia. This series always attracts a large number of racers and this event was no different, with well over 100 entries from all over the region, including some of Australia's best. The two days kicked off with practice and two rounds of qualifying on Saturday. I was able to take the first two Qualifiers in both 1:8 nitro and 1:8 EP, both of my cars performing great.
Sunday conditions could not be better -- sunny, with little breeze, and the track looking great. Once again my cars were flawless, enabling me to take the double T.Q. During the course of the afternoon, the track held up well, the medium grip clay getting dusty but providing great racing. Legs one and two of EP saw some close battles; however, my RC8B3.1e was near perfect and I was able to take the win. A similar story in Nitro -- My RC8B3.1 gave me the confidence to push hard and come home with the win in the 30-minute A Main.
A really fun weekend, awesome racing, and great atmosphere. Can't wait for round 4!
