Latest race news from Losi:

Location: Monroe, LA.
Date: September 10-12, 2010
Event: Southern Nationals & RC Expo 2010

Team Losi / Nova Rossi Driver Adam Drake attended the Inaugural Southern Nationals and RC Expo in West Monroe, Louisiana. The event was held inside the Ike Hamilton Expo Center. The track was one of the largest indoor facilities in the world with great ventilation and air conditioning. The facility is equipped with 150 full service RV hookups, pit stalls with lockable gates; hotel was directly across the street and within walking distance and on site snack bar as well as restaurants within one mile of facility.

The Southern Nationals had an area for manufactures to display product and answer question for consumers and spectators. The event had 260+ entries and sold nearly 700 tickets for spectators.

In the 1/8th Pro Buggy and Truck classes Adam Drake put his Nova Rossi powered Losi 8ight and 8ight T on pole for the 45 minute finals. In the buggy final Adam battled early with Ryan Lopez, but Adam’s consistency and pit strategy was too much for the rest of the field. At the end of the 45 minute buggy final Adam was able to put nearly two laps on the rest of the field. The truck final was a similar to the buggy final. Adam battled early in the main with Patrick Castleberry, but Adam’s speed and consistency paid off. Adam took home the victory in the 1/8th truck final by two laps.

Team Losi Racing also won the 1/8th Sportsman Buggy and 1/8th Open Buggy classes!
