Tekin factory driver Joe Bornhorst attended Rd1 of the Winter Racing League series held at CRCRC, Ohio RC Factory, and Sparks Park respectively. Joe entered the Pro4 SC class and 1/8 E buggy divisions.
“On Friday afternoon, I arrived at the track and began to get ready for some practice runs. Both of my Tekin powered Tekno vehicles were on point from the first lap on the track, which made the night pretty easy on me. Since no changes were needed for my cars, I spent my time breaking in my AKA Clay Typos, and continued to learn the track. It was a pretty basic practice night.
On Saturday morning, I arrived at the track bright and early and prepared for the day. I ran each of my cars twice, which served as a nice warm up for the racing that soon followed. Throughout every round of rocket round qualifying, I was able to hold the TQ spot in both classes, with the 2nd round being the quickest runs for me in both classes. As the day went on, the track began to dry out but still no changes were needed for either of my cars.
Going into the mains, I felt quite confident that I could hold onto the top spot, but I knew that I would still have to have clean runs to bring home the wins. Luckily, I was able to do just that, and pulled away from the pack to take the wins in both main events!
I would like to thank all of my sponsors for the continued support, Tekin, Tekno RC, Magic Hobbies, AKA, MIP, Avid, SMC Batteries, PT RC Racing Oils, the Radio Impound Podcast, and Double Crossed Designs.
