Welcome to the 2020 VRC WORLDS 1:8 electric buggies Modified class.


Barcooff - R/C Off Road Circuit Model, home of the EURO CONTEST by BITTYDESIGN. This is a very large and complex track with many features and a choppy surface. It is a great challenge to get around fast and without crashing.

Welcome to the 2020 VRC WORLDS 1:12 electric sportscars Modified class.


Lausanne Switzerland, carpet indoor track for 1:10 and 1:12 electric on-road racing. Road dome, dots, and tape conspire to make a clean lap difficult on this tiny track with lap times under 10 seconds.

Welcome to the 2020 VRC WORLDS 1:8 nitro GT3 modified.


Lloret de Mar - Spain, is a beautiful track and location. The track can be thought of as mostly 180 degree corners and a long bendy back straight.

Qualifying Results:

E-buggy - First round of qualifying went really well for me, I qualified 3rd out of 200 racers! I was pretty comfortable with the car, having plenty of experience here. Rob Gillespie showed the pace needed to be on top though. His line through the hip jump after the front straight seems to be the key. I tried it but haven't yet mastered it to gain much time. My semi-final is off to a good start, out-running 6th and 7th qualifiers easily. I'm confident I can spend the next couple of days refining and getting consistency + speed optimized before the main.

1:12 - This Lausanne track is a great test of consistency and frustration. The road-dome barriers are terrible. A small touch of one inevitably sends your car into another one or the wall, losing a quarter to half a lap with one small error. I still set a good pace to be just a few seconds back from the top qualifier, qualifying 4th. Doing really well despite concentrating on 1:8 buggy racing all year.

GT3 - This is the fun class I entered just to experience the car. I tried these when they came out and driving them was just a hoot. At this track though, I'm struggling to find balance, I'm fighting the front end at almost every corner. The consistency + speed I want is not there, however it has been good enough to be 5th qualifier in the A-main group.


Semi Results:

E-Buggy - Rob Gillespie again showed the way with the only 18 lap run and a victory lap over the field. Broc Champlin and Tom Rinderknecht were within a second but caught at the line getting a lap less, but still very fast 17 lap runs. Gary Crowell (me) headed the “best of the rest” group that was 10 seconds back and all within 8 seconds of each other. This is a great result to be expected when the Worlds comes around, even on a tough track like this that really destroys consistency.

1:12 - Nicola Marrone brought his TQ pace to the semis and easily (relatively) held on to the top spot in the semis. Gary Crowell (it me) jumped up to 2nd in the semis with a consistent but at times feeling slow run, but just ending up 0.666 sec back. We might see a 49 lap run from one of us, the pace was there but for the RoadRail track system punishing a car millimeters off course with meters of tumbling.Dana Bailes, Graham Raistrick, and Kevin Rasquin round out the top five and are drivers to watch in 1:12 mains for sure.

GT3 - Kévin Rasquin was the TQ and backed that up with the win in the semis a full lap over 2nd Mirko Salemi. A lap back from Mirko was Daniele Bulla, Kevin Bacon, Gary Crowell in the top five.

Fast group of racers in real life and VRC. Standings from late in Q1 round of E-Buggy.

Welcome to the 2020 VRC WORLDS 1:8 Rally-X Modified class.


This track has pretty easy 180 corners but very tricky two sloped corners, where you have to be very precise with speed and braking. Who handles those corners perfectly, was favorite to take this round.


1:10 Nitro TC


Welcome to the 2020 VRC WORLDS 1:10 nitro sedan modified class.


Sao Paulo, home of the 2004 IFMAR World Championships for 1:10 nitro cars. This track is built on the slope of a hill, and slopes away from you some 3 meters (down...), making this a one of a kind track. Thrilling and exciting!
