Team Associated and Reedy dominates Modifieds at Keilor Invitational
Australia's outdoor version of the Reedy Race, the Keilor Invitational has been held since 2014 with the top ten 1:10 Off-Road Modified and Stock racers from around the country racing head to head against each other over five rounds of 2WD and five rounds of 4WD for the overall Invitational title. The 2019 event had hot summer weather throughout the event, resulting in a naturally grooved track. The layout for this event was fast and flowing, with a huge tabletop to quad jump that required timing to navigate and proved decisive in the race results. Around 160 entries were received in total, with racers traveling from all around the country.
Team Associated and Reedy dominated the Modified class race results at the 2019 Keilor Invitational in Australia, with AE / Reedy factory drivers Ray Munday (Invitational Modified) and Cameron Zammit (Open Class 2WD and 4WD Modified) taking the overall victories.
AE junior racers took multiple victories in the Invite Modified class, with Lachlan Donnelly finishing a close second, Lachlan Munday fourth, and Jordan Isergin fifth. Andrew Selvaggi took TQ in both 2WD and 4WD Modified Open classes with his AE/Reedy buggies as well.
AE also figured strongly in the stock classes with Jay Bloss TQ'ing both 2WD 17.5 and 4WD 13.5 classes and winning the 2WD class, with Nathan Facciol third. 9-year-old Jak Parsey took TQ and first in the 2WD Junior class from Shelby Bloss, both running AE buggies.
