Congratulations to Josh Cyrul for Top Qualifying and Winning both World GT Expert Modified and 12th Scale 13.5 at this year's 10th Anniversary International Indoor Championships! Josh, his World GT4 and Rev.8 were pretty much untouchable all week long. He TQ'd every round of qualifying in both classes and won both A-Mains wire to wire. In 12th scale, Josh piloted his Rev.8 to TQ with the only 45 lap run in the class, taking fast lap by a tenth. He then backed that TQ up by doing the only 45 lapper in the Main, for the flawless win. In Expert World GT Mod, Josh's World GT4 was just scary fast. In fact, his World GT lap times would have easily put him in the top half of the 12th scale Modified A-Main! In the A-Main Josh lapped everyone up to 2nd place, and his fast lap of 9.6 seconds was FOUR TENTHS quicker the 2nd place Hupo Honigl's 10.0. Josh went on to do the only 31 lap run of the week in that class also. As always, thank you to all of the sponsors that support Josh and SpeedMerchant...

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. <img src="http://c29494.r94.cf1.rackcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/017-Mod-TC-Top-10.jpg" width="800"> <IMG src="http://c29494.r94.cf1.rackcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/008-Super-Stock-TC-Top-10.jpg" width="800"> Results & podiums <img src="http://c29494.r94.cf1.rackcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/DSC_01261.jpg" width="800"> <img src="http://c29494.r94.cf1.rackcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/DSC_01281.jpg" width="800"> <img src="http://c29494.r94.cf1.rackcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/DSC_0244.jpg" width="800"> <img src="http://c29494.r94.cf1.rackcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/0002-Action.jpg" width="800"> <img src="http://c29494.r94.cf1.rackcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/0003-Action.jpg" width="800"> More pics...
