Schumacher defines TEAM Performance at the IIC


Team Schumacher and the new Mi3 turn in stellar performances at the IIC in Las Vegas.

Jimmy Maddison (UK) and Alan Hewitt (USA) take 1st  and 2nd in the Stock Rubber Sedan class. Maddison TQ’d the class, but Hewitt was coming for him strong after a rough start.


The Mi3 was also at the top of its game in the 19t Rubber Class. The A main finished with TQ Randy Caster in 2nd,  Jimmy Madison in 4th, and 4th qualifier Alan Hewitt in 6th. Foam guru Chris Goetz also took 4th in the Stock Foam A main.


But the REAL story of the race was an astounding display of teamwork and cooperation in the Schumacher pits. As UK team member Jimmy Maddison was struggling with his primary car just an hour before his qualifier, the US team as a whole decided to “team build” his backup kit for him. The team members went to work, and in a flurry of activity they completed the car for him just minutes before his qualifier. Madison then went on to take TQ of the class with that qualifying round! This kind of team effort, friendly attitude and helpfulness were displayed throughout the event, and no single action could do more to personify exactly what it means to be a part of TEAM Schumacher.

About Matt:I think it’s safe to say I’ve done a little bit of everything in RC. That said, I predominately race off-road and my current passion is short course. One of my all-time favorite classes is oval carpet racing. Besides racing, I can often be found working on one of my many never-complete projects, and it seems I have an ever growing collection of rock crawlers—specifically scale crawlers.
