Dominic Greiner wins the 1/10th 2018 Florida Winternats

2018 winternats

This past weekend we had the annual Winternat's in Fort Myers, Florida. I got there Thursday morning and the track has changed a lot since we were last there. The traction was high and with bumps now and high tire wear. We started the qualifiers and Dominic Greiner and I would battle the first round with me taking the TQ on that one. We ran 7 minute qualifiers, so we also had the pit-men involved. In the last 2 rounds the track seemed to have changed and I also struggled with my car. I held the TQ through all 5 of the first rounds, however in the final round Dominic would get the better of me and take my TQ by 1 second. With rocket round this gave Dominic the overall TQ and I would qualify 2nd. For the finals I had to MITO35 and make changes to improve my chassis and overall package. We did fuel test runs to make sure for the strategy. We made really good run time in our test and knew we might have an edge. In the finals Dominic and I got away from the rest of the pack. Through the first pit stop we would make passes on each other and I took the lead for a couple of laps. On the 2nd stop we ran out of fuel 1 lap early and I lost 2 laps with this. I was still in second and pushing hard to try and make up time, but Dominic and I were just too close in times. Even when we did tire changes both teams got the same pit stop time of 39 seconds. We held our 2nd place position and just had to settle in this case. I would like to thank all my sponsors; Capricorn RC, Capricorn Tires, Novarossi World, Protoform, Ko Propo, RCtarget and a special thank to my pit-man who worked hard all weekend. The RCtarget team had great laughs all weekend long and it was a lot of fun...Till next race!
