Normally when you see race reports in the states you typically don’t see the finals on a Monday, well this is England and yesterday was eastern sunday. On to more important information. Today is the final day for NEO12 and in a few hours time, the final 45min race will begin. Even though drivers have gone through two days of qualifying, the highest they can qualify is into a Semi Finals (A&B), those races will then determine who makes it into the final event. Yet another twist has been added, pole postion will then be determined by each driver getting one warm up lap followed by one race lap, no more, fastest time gets the pole position. This is sure to mix things up a bit because it reward the lowest position driver while potentially hurting the fastest driver and vise versa. Word in the pits is, drivers are either upset because they feel that after all of this qualifying they still don’t have a guaranteed position in the main OR drivers feel that it helps to mixes things up and while still realizing that the fast guys are going to be fast.

About the author

I've raced just about every type of RC car, traveled the world shooting RC races, but at the end of the day though, you'll most likely find me behind the wheel of a 1/8-scale nitro buggy at my local track. I'm a Southern California native, which on any given day allows me the opportunity to race on just about any surface or facility of my choosing. Before I was heavily into RC most of my attention was focused towards photography. Since, all of the experience that I've gained and learned has been projected towards RC photography. I'm fueled by the idea of creating something new every time I head to take pictures. Whether it's portraits, racing action, or a track panoramas.
