Die XRS entwickelt sich mittlerweile zu einer internationalen Rennserie. Am letzten Wochenende fand in Malaysia beim SACC R/C Park in Shah Alam, in der Nähe von Kuala Lumpur ein Rennen statt. Obwohl die Wettervorhersage 100 % Regenwahrscheinlichkeit vorhersagte, wurden 71 Teilnehmer in 3 verschiedenen Klassen mit Fahrern aus 4 verschiedenen Ländern für das Rennen gemeldet.
Mit dabei war Alexander Hagberg, der davon berichtete:
The XRS Malaysia was held during the weekend of 11-13 of November at the nice facilities of SACC R/C Park in Shah Alam, near Kuala Lumpur. Despite the weather forecast predicting 100% certainty of rain, the race saw 71 entries in 3 different classes, with drivers from 4 different countries.
The race saw good racing in every class, with winners being crowned after 3 qualifiers and 2 finals were completed during the Sunday. Unfortunately, the 3rd final had to be cancelled because of rain conditions.
I managed to take the TQ & win in the competitive boosted stock class, after converting my TQ into a win in the two finals. Dominic Quek showed great pace throughout the event to finish in a strong runner up position! Young Haikal from Malaysia took the 3rd and final podium spot!
