Spain Davide Ongaro wins at 2022 worlds 1/8th off-road warm-up juin 9, 2022 by Chris Laisser un commentaire Last week was held the warm-up race of the 2022 IFMAR 1/8th off-road world championship at RC-Redován track located in Spain. This huge track provides what few tracks offer with a lot of elevation changes and a very high traction, which is very different from what many drivers are used to racing on. The facility was great with a nice covered pit area, the view of the track was good from any part of the drivers stand. Friday night after practice the crew repaired the track where there were a few broken spots to get ready for qualifying. Saturday would be six rounds of qualifying. Spanish racer Juan Carlos Canas (SWORKZ/REDS Racing/Merlin/Maclan/T-ProT-Pro) and Canadian driver Ty Tessmann (XRAY/FX Engines/Hobbywing/Hot Race Tyres) were on the same level during the qualys but eventually it was Juan Carlos who grabbed the overall TQ. Ty started first in their semi-final and he was able to win his semi. As it was also the fastest time of the two semis, he started on pole for the one hour final. While in the warm up right before the main the Ty’s XB8’22 felt good, as the final started the XRAY ride felt strange and was hard to drive. The former world champion wasn’t able to keep the pace and would make mistakes and struggle through the main and would end up finishing 8th. Current world champion Davide Ongaro (Team Associated/O.S Engines/Hobbywing/Sunpadow/Ong Products/AKA) brought home the win with 18s margin over another world champion, David Ronnefalk (Mayako/Corsatec/Runner Time) in second while the current European champion Riccardo Berton (Infinity/O.S.Engines/Runner Time/Schumacher Racing/LRP/Hot Race Tires) ended the day in 3rd, some 5s behind.
