Team Associated and Reedy Dominate Australian Nats 1/10 Offroad
(Pictured: 2WD Mod podium.)
Team Associated and Reedy Power dominated the 1/10 Australian Nationals with Chris Sturdy (2WD Modified) and Andrew Selvaggi (2WD 17.5) taking TQ and first, with AE filling nine out of ten spots in the 2WD Mod A Main! Around 230 entries were received from all around the country for the event, and the club prepared a brand new outdoors fast and challenging dirt track layout. Mother nature made life difficult with very hot and windy conditions during practice and 2WD day: heavy rain forced the cancellation of 4WD and truck classes.
Chris Sturdy (AE/Reedy) took TQ but not without being pushed hard by young racers Lachlan Donnelly (AE), Jordan Isergin (AE/Reedy), and Lachlan Munday (AE/Reedy). The finals were intense and the result came down to the final few laps, Sturdy taking his third 2WD Mod title in a row from Lachlan Munday, who came in second, Donnelly third and Isergin fifth. The Team Associated B6.1D was dominant in the class with nine out of ten vehicles in the A Main. The future of Australian racing is looking bright with four Team Associated juniors in the A final: Lachlan Munday (13), Lachlan Donnelly (15), Jordan Isergin (15), and Matthew Couper (15).
1st: Chris Sturdy (AE B6.1D, Reedy)
2nd: Lachlan Munday (AE B6.1D, Reedy)
3rd: Lachlan Donnelly (AE B6.1D)
Andrew Selvaggi (AE/Reedy) took TQ after winning three out of four qualifiers. Selvaggi won A1 and A3 to take his first national title. Brayden Miller took second with Brodie Miller fourth after winning A2. Six out of ten vehicles in the A final were Team Associated B6.1D!
