Race report from Team Tekin:
Yeung wins the 2017 Chinese National Championship!
The 2017 Chinese National Championship was held on the weekend of August 27th hosted at FS Off-road race track in Yongkang China. Tekin factory driver Carson Yeung run a well contested 1/8 E Buggy class. Over 200 entries total would provide plenty of competition for everyone. A large track with a 60m x 40m race surface and high 40c+ temps would punish the drivers all weekend.
In 1/8 EP Buggy class Carson would start off in the triple A main format the P2 position. A1 would be chaos in the first lap dropping him down to last. A steady push would get him back into 3rd in the end of A1. A2 a better start would allow Carson to make a pass on P1 and take the win. A3 would be a rough start again, however once again a steady push would see Carson back to finish in P2 for A3 giving him the the overall win and the 2017 Chinese National Championship!
Carson chose the award winning Tekin Rx8 Gen3 ESC and T8 1900kv combination running the latest v258 software. “In the 40c+ temps my Tekin equipment performed without issues others were struggling with.” Carson Yeung.
