Florida’s top racers celebrated Thanksgiving weekend at Jeff’s RC Studio in Fort Myers for stop number 3 of JConcepts Super Cup Fall Session. Jeff, Sam and crew worked long and hard to prepare for the record setting entries that began to arrive early Friday morning. With a recent move and expansion, the outdoor off road track was still in its infancy having been built only a month earlier. The layout was perfect along with the preparation of the track surface, it was set to groove in for maximum traction. Mother Nature kept all racers on their toes throughout the day as a heavy cloud cover kept the sun at bay until almost 11 AM.

CML’s Iain McCallum reports from the fourth round of the Pro-Line EP Masters series currently being held at Storm Valley Racway… Round 4 came upon us very quickly as the ever popular Storm Valley entered a busy Xmas period. We have had two rounds in two weeks then a wait of six weeks for round 5 (19th Jan). It’s a testament to the hardworking owners and promoters that this indoor clay track is booked up so far in advance. For some doubters, there was a feeling that the tyres that work on clay are more expensive to run, with some manufacturer’s astro tyres being four or five pounds cheaper than the Pro-Line clay ones. After four meets, the worries have been quashed.

After the previous 5 rounds, there were only 4 drivers (Asang, Edy St, Patrix, Hari) who still have a chance to win the overall championship. Patrix had to TQ and win this last round race to win, and he did just that! He secured the TQ spot after winning 2 of the 3 qualifying rounds. Asang who lead the championship table before this last race was very fast and TQ’d the last round of qualifying. After a terrible start to the final Patrix who original started first climbed his way back to the front before the first 10 minutes of the 45 minute final and stayed there for the duration of the race. Asang finished in second on the same lap with Edy St taking third. This result allowed Patrix to claim the overall championship with his JQ and Alpha package.
