The Keilor Cup is arguably a big event on the Off Road racing calendar in Australia, and results and photos from the event are starting to filter through. Let’s start with the results themselves which can be found complete at http://keilorrc.org.au/results/2014_Keilor_Cup/Print_Meeting_Report.html , and with over 160 entries, there is a few results there!
Photos, I’ll start with the one I am biased towards, President of the club I am a member of, Sam Wells, took out the win in 4wd Modified Buggy at the cup and had this to say about it;
Very happy with my results at the recent Keilor cup. My Xray Xb4, running Proline holeshot m3 2.0 tyres was hooked up and faultless all weekend allowing me to take the win in 4wd modified.
I always enjoy coming over to Vic and racing at the Keilor Offroad RC Club. I had a close battle with Glen Bonetti in A1 and Ray Munday in A2 who was charging hard. Well done to all the other competitors and thankyou to the Keilor club for hosting another fantastic event. With 160 entries they did very well get through it all in 1 day.
I would like to thank Ari Bakla from Xray and Proline Australia for the opportunity to run such great equipment, Nicola Poltronieri from Gforce Australia for the super smooth and easy to use ESC and Jeff Schroeder and the team from Fantom motors for building such powerful and reliable motors.
A special thanks to John Watkins and Amy for there hospitality. Without them i wouldn’t be able to do these events.
