2011 IIC Las Vegas

8 posts in this topic

The 2011 International Indoor Championships was once again held at the Riviera Hotel and Casino on the world-famous Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada. A near record 400 entries competed in a variety of TC and pan car classes on the small but challenging circuit set up in the hotel's main ballroom.

With over 60 entries, one of the largest classes at this year's event was the Super Stock TC class. Utilizing 17.5 motors and boosted ESCs, the class featured some of the world's top drivers turning laps nearly as fast as those in the Modified TC class.

Reedy factory driver Atsushi Hara was clearly the man to beat. The defending champion was extremely fast in practice and continued to show no mercy in the qualifying heats. After four rounds of qualifying, Hara's fastest time was nearly 4 seconds faster than the next best driver which meant he would start the A Main from the coveted pole position.

At the sound of the start tone, Hara shot into the lead thanks to the power of a Reedy Sonic 17.5 motor and 5000mAh LiPo battery. An early challenge from Reedy teammate Keven Hébert was the only threat to his dominance. But eventually Hara managed to build a comfortable gap to the chasers and cruise to victory.

CRC driver Lambert sweeps the IIC, T.Q, 1st and wire to wire in the A-main!

The International Indoor Championships in Las Vegas is a showcase of the finest drivers and products from all over the world. A large smooth track, lots of grip and the best drivers in the world, the IIC is a big test of man and machine.

New at the 2011 IIC was CRC's new 1:12th car, the Gen-Xi. This new car takes all the winning heritage from the most dominant car in 1:12th racing over the last few years, the multi-national winning CRC Gen-XL. Corner speed is at a huge premium in the restricted 17.5 class. With speedo timing locked at zero, the chassis is the main factor in a quick lap time. Kenny totally dominated the IIC with the " CRC Race Package"; the 3203 Gen-Xi car , the 3701 Rocket Fuel battery, the 4167 CRC/Black Art R8C body and CRC Pro Cut 1:12th tires (2172 Magenta front and 2175 Pink rear).

Patrick Morehead and Fred Kellner put the the CRC Gen-X 10 on the front row, qualifying 1-2.

Kellner takes the victory!

Fred Kellner takes a dramatic win the 13.5 World GT division with the CRC Gen-X 10LE

The 13.5 World GT division at the IIC was another class dominated by CRC with a T.Q. Wisconson driver Fred Kellner took his VERY stock CRC Gen-X 10LE (1712)to a win in the 13.5 World GT class. Fred was sniffing around the T.Q. of the event for the first 2 rounds only to see Northwest driver Patrick Morehead take the T.Q. in round 3 with his CRC Gen-X 10 with a Mckune chassis and other McKune option parts. Congratulations to the 2 drivers for making it an all CRC front row.
