Euro Offroad Series RC Update

I have talked about the Euro Offroad Series a bit in some previous posts and have been keeping up on some of the action and wanted to share it with you. I think it is a pretty cool series and I’ve seen a lot of news surrounding it on various websites. Here is an update of what is going on out there:

Dustin Evans of Team Losi Racing was the 4WD Buggy Top Qualifier for the Euro Offroad Series Pilot event today. Ryan Cavalieri was the only driver that could deny the Reedy Race of Champions winner’s pole position going in to the final round of qualifying.  Team Durango’s Joern Neumann put pay to that when he TQ’d Q5 to become the only driver to head the Americans in either buggy class.

Ryan Cavalieri, one of my favorites from Team Associated, said he made the wrong tire choice for the final qualifier but is confident his B44.1 is fast enough for the win tomorrow. Here were the results:

4WD Buggy A-Main grid
1. Evans Dustin (US) – Losi – 0pts
2. Cavalieri Ryan (US) – Associated – opts
3. Neumann Jörn (DE) – Durango – 3pts
4. Martin Lee (GB) – Tamiya – 4pts
5. Ausfelt Otto (SE) – Tamiya – 9pts
6. Rheinard Marc (DE) – Tamiya – 9pts
7. Ronnefalk David (SE) – Kyosho – 12pts
8. Levin Oskar (SE) – Tamiya – 12pts
9. Hönigl Hupo (AT) – Durango – 12pts
10.Wilck Viktor (SE) – Tamiya – 14pts

Cavelieri was however the Top Qualifier in 2WD buggy, giving Team Associated  the honor of being the first manufacturer to TQ a Euro Offroad Series race which is what I like to hear. Ryan outpaced yesterday’s Q1 top qualifier Dustin Evans in all four of today’s rounds of heats with European Champion Lee Martin third on each occasion and this is how they will line up for tomorrow’s A-Main. Cavalieri described the day as perfect having had to do nothing with the set-up on his Orion powered Team Associated B4.1 all day but the 2 time World Champion says he expects a good race with Evans. Here were the results in 2WD buggy:

A proud Cavalieri

2WD Buggy A-Main grid
1. Cavalieri Ryan (US) – Associated – 0pts
2. Evans Dustin (US) – Losi – 2pts
3. Martin Lee (GB) – Tamiya – 6pts
4. Levin Oskar (SE) – Losi – 7pts
5. Hönigl Hupo (AT) – Durango – 8pts
6. Ronnefalk David (SE) – Kyosho – 9pts
7. Neumann Jörn (DE) – Durango – 9pts
8. Ausfelt Otto (SE) – Losi – 11pts
9. Bayer Martin (CZ) – Losi – 12pts
10.Johansson Mikael (SE) – Kyosho – 14pts

From these two examples and from some of the other classes I have read about, you can tell the Evans and Cavelieri are really battling it out and its pretty cool to see.  I like both Team Associated and Team Losi and its cool to see two guys from the US having great races in this series.
