CHRIS STURDY TAKES SC TRUCK WORLD TITLE

18.12.2014

Surprise from 'down under': Chris Sturdy is the new VRC World Champion Open Class SC Trucks. Congratulations on a fantastic drive for this CLUB level racer, beating the very best PRO racers in this class! The 18 year old Aussie was a big unknown, finishing just 69th in the Season 3 Series, but at this Worlds he got his act together to finish 1 lap clear of Wollanka and Loriot who made up the podium.

The 2014 Worlds Open Class SC Truck Main final was a 15 minute long race, forcing a pit stop midway to change the battery pack. Sturdy was one of the first to go for a new pack, Wollanka, who had been tossing for the lead with Sturdy for most of the first haplf of this final, came in for a fresh LiPo pack 2 laps later, but saw his 3 seconds lead diminish to under a second. Sturdy charged hard, Wollanka answered in style but pushed it too hard, blowing his chance to fight for the World Championship until the last lap to pieces. Young Nicolas Loriot lost the race at the first few minutes of the main final, making too many errors dropping him back to 8th. After he got steady he was able to fight back to a podium place!

Congratulations! I loved the commentary on the first lap when Chris pulled the double single instead of the single double :)
