AE/Reedy Power Champions Crowned at the Transylvania Off-Road Cup 2018
After an intense three rounds, the battle was still on for most of the titles in the Transylvania Off-Road Cup 2018.
In 2WD Buggy 13.5, Jakab Laszlo already had won the title, winning three races in a row, ensuring another championship for the B6D model. The rest of the racers in the Fxracing/Fxmodells team had to win the final round to become 2018 champions in their classes.
In 2WD Short Course Modified, the battle was strong, as many of the competitors had found a good setup for the grass track at Miko castle in Miercurea Ciuc City. Both FX drivers Adorjani Tamas and Fridrik Lucian were driving the SC5M with Reedy motors and had won one final, but in the final round Tamas managed a victory in the last few meters of the track.
In Junior class, Jakab Tamas, in his first year driving the SC5M, managed to win all the mains, ensuring an SC5M victory. The Jakab family had a great year with two TOC wins in family.
In the Truck class, the battle was between Adorjani Tamas and Laczko Tibor, both driving the T5M with Reedy motors. Again, Tamas had lost the race and Tibor became champion for the third year in a row.
