Lee Martin Silverstone Winter Series
Last Saturday I ventured up to Northampton to race in the silverstone winter series. It’s a very hotly contested race meeting with approx 130 drivers. The track is mostly AstroTurf with some man made jumps and bumps. The traction is high and the layouts can be quite fast.
Lee Martin 2nd in 2WD!
In 2002 Tamiya won its first ever IFMAR World Championship title in the on-road Touring Car class division with five total titles under its belt since. In 2013 Tamiya has gotten one step closer to a World title in off-road with its first ever podium appearance as Lee Martin from the UK took his new Tamiya TRF201XM (Mid Motor) 2WD buggy to an impressive 2nd place finish right behind Jerod Tebo of Kyosho. The IFMAR contest proved to be highly contested as Lee Martin had the fastest buggy on the track. It came down to who took chances and who made fewer mistakes. Ultimately, Lee proved the Tamiya TRF201XM and the efforts behind the off-road program are coming together in the off-road arena. Congratulations to Lee for putting Tamiya on the podium! Good luck in the 4WD division!

TRF Make it a 1-2-3 in the 2013 Reedy Race Touring Car!
TRF (Tamiya Racing Factory) drivers put in an awesome display to dominate the podium in the 2013 Reedy Race of Champions Invitational class, held from May 23-26 at Nor-Cal Hobbies in California, USA. Racing the TRF417V5 chassis, Marc Rheinard took home a well-deserved victory and was followed in 2nd by rising Japanese star Akio Sobue with last year's champion Viktor Wilck making it a TRF 1-2-3 under the watchful gaze of mechanic Kiyokazu Suzuki.
