2018 ORE Nationals Round 4 – KMR

The last round of the 2018 South-African ORE national championship was held at Krugersdorp Model Racers at the Key West Track over weekend 03 and 04 November 2017. After Round 3 was cancelled, this event was key in determining the champion as it was three rounds to count for the 2018 championship. Controlled practise was rained out on Thursday but Friday we had great weather and good track conditions ensuring a fast pace for all drivers.

Touring Modified

With the successful IFMAR worlds completed, the current champion Hein Kotze, the 4-time champion Jason Hillcoat and other top drivers from the host club KMR changed chassis brand with many drivers racing the new Awesomatix. The controlled practise and previous practise events showed that reaching the A mains was destined for the fast and consistent drivers. The current champion and the 2018 series leader Hein Kotze dominated the practise and qualification rounds securing a great TQ for Sunday. He was closely followed by his Awesomatix team mate Anderton Smith and Xray driver Shaun Schutte securing 3rd and 2ndon the grid respectively. Hein dominated all three finals with Shaun Schutte holding his own in the second position. Anderton Smith had some troubles in A1 and A3 and Conrad Liebenberg drove good finals from 7th on the grid to grab the remaining podium spot. This great win gave Hein Kotze his second national championship in a row.

Protoform D9 electric touring car body shell

Protoform D9 electric touring car body shell

Following a couple of teaser images Protoform have fully unveiled their all-new D9 body shell for 190mm touring cars. After much success with the Type-S, drivers requested a less-aggressive body handling feel in specific conditions where traction roll was being combated, or in super low grip when utmost rear traction was needed. Developed through extensive testing, the D9 features smooth, easy-to-drive handling characteristics, helping to achieve maximum lap times consistency over a run. In addition, added ridges along the front fenders, door panels, a-pillars and trunk bed provide rigidity even in thinner materials. The critical tuning aid of body positioning is once again made easier with PF’s mounting marks inside the front wheel arches. Positions for 0, +2mm, +4mm and +6mm are scribed in for convenience. Included with every D9 are the all-new rear wing mounts with top “button” and bottom “nut”. The D9 is Global Body Spec compliant and fully EFRA (#4062) & ROAR approved. The body comes made of high-quality, super-durable polycarbonate, it is available in both lightweight and Pro-lite weight versions and includes a decal sheet, window masks, overspray film and wing mounting hardware.
