News has reached us today that friend of RC Racing TV, Elliott Harper, has put together a deal with up-and-coming company G Force.
Team Durango racer Elliott Harper has announced he has signed for G Force to run their full line of pit accessories, for the remainder of the 2014 season and beyond. The 2010 World Championship Podium finisher had this to say about the new deal:
“Firstly, I would like to thank Mr Jang and Keith from Muchmore for their support over the years. As we approach this year’s European and World Championships, I felt it was time for a change and, having seen the quality and line-up of the G Force products already in use trackside, I am proud to represent the company and hope to achieve some great results with them. I would also like to thank David Spashett and Zen Racing for their help and support and am looking forward to the coming races! See you trackside soon”

When I caught up with Martin he was relishing the chance to develop set ups and work on the Mi5 with his team mates as often he says he’s alone at races, so having a full compliment of Schumacher factory drivers at the Euros in Portugal was a bonus not just for this event but for overall development of the car. ‘We also have a lot of fun’ he says as Chris Grainger shoots us a cheeky grin from across the pit table. When I ask if there is any inter-team rivalry Martin shrugs and says ‘you know how it is when England and Germany come together…’
Well without doubt the most fun team to spent time with at the event in Portugal was Schumacher, and when the B final came along we realised what Martin meant!
NEWSFLASH: You could win the Mi5!! Only around 24 hours left to enter! Just Click HERE!
Winner will be announced just before the main 1/10th IC TC Euros final on Saturday… Check back here to watch
*Don’t worry Martin we’re not giving away your actual car, the winner will get a brand new car shipped to them direct from Schumacher!

For many years when the RCTV crew showed up at an ISTC event we would expect Marc Rheinard to win, but in the last few seasons Ronald has taken that superior throne of inevitable event winner… I ask Ronald why and he puts it down to the retirement of RC legend Masami Hirosaka, ‘Since moving to Yokomo in 2009 I have had better support, Masami had retired and I was given the chance to take their number one spot for touring car, since then I’ve worked with mechanic Yukijiro Umino on all big international races’ However Umino had remained in Japan on this occasion for a Japanese national and evidently as Ronald went on to win, it didn’t hurt the drivers performance too much, ‘I think need to race sometimes without him, it’s good to have the support but also it’s good to be on my own sometimes so I can learn and have the chance to win on my own.

Christopher Krapp has driven Kyosho for seven years now and is very happy and says he enjoys a great relationship with the Japanese brand. He struggled with set up at the Euros in Portugal but he says running on asphalt is not a problem for the car, he does admit though, when wrestling with a bad setup it can be quite tough being alone and not having other drivers or mechanic to test and adjust with.

Ronald Volker claimed his 3rd outdoor European Title with a text book performance in Portugal.
Starting from Pole the German won the first two legs to claim the 2013 EFRA title to join the 2007 and 2010 trophies already on his mantelpiece.
Providing his closest challenge, as he had done for the entire event was Sweden’s Alexander Hagberg who followed Volker home in both the first two legs, however these were not dull finals as at no point was Volker more than a second ahead and for most of Leg 2 the Yokomo and the Xray were separated by centimetres.
