What an amazing weekend full of action packed racing at the 2015 JConcepts Spring INS in Tacoma, Washington. Home of NW legend, Scott Brown, the owner of one of the finest indoor clay offroad tracks in the region hosted the JConcepts Spring INS for the second year in a row. From qualifying and all the way through the mains, showcased some of the fiercest battles the eyes could witness with stock buggy seeing mains all the way to the G-main and mod buggy to the D. With entry counts near the 240 range, the JConcepts tour would be the biggest race the NW would get to see. If you want to check out the 2wd and 4wd results…click here.
The layout was spectacular. This fun and flowy design was among the best I’ve seen at TRCR that made for close, competitive racing. The difficulty level was medium and there was realistically only 1 line around that track which really made it hard for passing. This was the type of layout that tested your patience and those who pushed too hard would rattle themselves into a mistake. Qualifying was key. Also, other key areas were in the jump section that required precision landings in the distance and in positioning. Land a bit wide or come up short and you’d lose time and literally watch your competitors creep up on your bumper. Another crucial spot that was arguably the most difficult to get right was the first turn after the sweeper. Hard on the brakes and delicate car control was required to not have the car break free as you setup for the tricky, fast chicane. Scott and his TRCR track crew did a marvelous job getting the track ready for this big event as racers were able to battle on a track that was smooth, challenging, yet fun and rewarding. Terrific job guys!
Here are the results with podium pics below! Huge thanks to all the racers who attended and was a part of this wonderful race. Also, thanks to Jason Ruona and the crew at JConcepts for putting on such a killer race for us to enjoy. What he does for the RC community is amazing. Thank you JConcepts for all you do in the world of RC!
For all the courteous drivers out there…thank you for being great sports and driving with class. Ron Schuur of Schuur Speed and Hobbywing mentioned to me that this past weekend at TRCR was some of the classiest racing he’s seen in a very long time and commended everyone on their great driving etiquette and sportsmanship! He’s seen a lot of racing in his time and this is something to be very proud of! Way to rep the NW!
Here are a few photos below. My apologies if I wasn’t able to capture everyone’s car, but was actually hired this weekend to do media for JConcepts and RedRC.
