Ronald Volker Takes Touring Car World Champ Title With Yokomo [VIDEO]

Ronald Volker Takes Touring Car World Champ Title With Yokomo [VIDEO]

He’s been known as the fastest on-road driver in the world without an IFMAR title, and after this last weekend, that’s no longer true. Yokomo‘s Ronald Volker finally got the win that’s eluded him and did it under stressful, close racing that went to the third main to decide the outcome. Having to start behind TQ and A1 winner Bruno Coelho/Xray, the German ace took the win in A2 after Coelho made a mistake. But, in spite of them both having a win, the title was up for grabs as they lined up for the final main. The final main saw a lot of carnage as many drivers battled for the lead with Volker making a pass on Coelho, but was hit subsequently by Coelho as they went in to the chicane causing enough damage to Coelho’s car for a DNF. Volker somehow rallied back, and the biggest surprise was Viktor Wilck/Serpent, who charged to second in the main and his first podium finish ever in third, just behind Coelho (second overall). Check out the footage from the last race below. (video and image courtesy of RedRC.net)
