Big Mac had the idea of bringing one of Offroad’s ideas over to onroad. Take a bunch of top racers and put them in a rounds race situation and then run a normal race meet in conjunction.

Simon Camilleri, Simon Nicholson, Ari Bakla and Matt Griffin are probably the standout contenders. I think over the weekend (at the Aus EP Offroad Nats) we’ve seen an effort that possibly defines the best “allround” electric R/C racer in the country……. Continue reading Australia’s Best Driver….
