Caroli & Laubscher win at SARDA 1/12th Series Rd3
The third round of the 2017 South-African ORE 1/12th national championship series was held at the Welkom RC Arena this past weekend. With a tight 2017 RC racing schedule in South Africa some of the 1/12th drivers could not participate in the event but all the championship contenders were present for the four qualifying rounds and three finals. Most of the drivers arrived Friday for some practise and setup on the fast and very high traction track. Practice on Friday showed that the local Antonio Caroli and newcomer Hein Kotze would be drivers to beat in Modified and youngsters Brandon Solomon and Francois Laubscher in the 13.5T blinky stock class.
