Team NCRC Started their race season early this year with a wonderful event. As always flawless execution of the race event and real friendly environment makes these races very desirable for racers especially in Turkey. There were a total of 40 racers in the event with 14 from Turkey. The carpet track was built over night by the excellent NCRC team. The traction was low in the begining but as the first practice sessions progressed the traction came up.
We had 5 Serpent drivers in this event. Ateş Billur, Arman Maralan, Çağhan Turna, Our team driver Mustafa Alp and myself, Serdar Aytemiz.
Mustafa and Arman came a day early and they already started practicing before hand and it showed. Mustafa Set the TQ and he proved to be really fast just like in 1/10 GP Touring. Arman had built the car the day before and was getting used to the car. Ateş was fast as always, çağhan was on his Ipad and was using a laptop to program the SP ESC he had, I swtiched for Pistol radio to Stick and I was trying to adapt.
In the end Mustafa unfortunately had motor problems in the first 2 races and cost him the race as he woul dhave won the race easily. He ran a flawless 22 laps and a lap time of 13.5 which was already a lap ahead of everyone and almost half a second faster then the second quickest. I am sure he will do better next race. Ateş had a good race and finished 6th and Mustafa with problems managed to come in 7th spot. I gradually got used to the radio but only managed to win the B-main. Arman came 4th in the B-main due to some technical problems. Çağhan Tried really hard to break the car but he still managed to finish 6th in the C-main.
We had great fun during the event. next time we will arrive one day ahead to get some sleep as most of us had to race with out sleep for almost 36 hours. We would like to thank everyone for their hospitality while we were at the event. looking forward to ur next race…
