HUDY Indoor Champs

Verstärkt ist Xray in den USA aktiv in den letzten Monaten. Gerade Alexander Hagberg und andere Fahrer wagen immer wieder den Weg von Europa über den großen „Teich“. Am letzten Wochenende ging es zu den HUDY Champs 2023 beim Prolevel RC in Chesterfield.

Davon berichtet Alexander Hagberg (Englisch):

The 2023 HUDY Champs was held at the great facilities of Prolevel RC in Chesterfield, MO. The event was held on the weekend of 5-8 of January, and saw a total of 157 entries spread on 10 different classes. The XRAY and RC America team was in attendance, and ready to race it out in every class!

The modified TC class saw a close fight between myself and Keven Hebert in qualifying. Eventually Keven would secure the TQ spot after winning round 4, which he converted into a win in the single A-final. I held on to 2nd place, and our team manager Drew Ellis finished in a strong 4th place!

Modified TC results:

  1. Keven Hebert – XRAY X4’23
  2. Alexander Hagberg – XRAY X4’23
  3. Kemp Anderson

In modified 1/12, qualifying was a close affair between Kemp Anderson and myself. In the end, I came short of just about 1 second to the TQ spot which was won by Kemp. In the end, Kemp managed to drive a faultless main final which awarded him the win. I finished in 2nd, a few seconds adrift, and Keven Hebert rounded out the podium in 3rd!

Stock TC saw Marc Livermore take the TQ spot for the team. But unfortunately, some tough luck in the main saw Marc drop down to 3rd overall! Marc showed great pace all weekend, and certainly deserved a better result!
