Race Report from the 2013 Emerald City Classic

The Seattle RC Racers had their one large event last weekend. Its called the Emerald City Classic. Typically it is a multi-day event but we couldn't rent anything for more than a day so we did it at our normal venue as a one day with single mains. 117 entries and regional talent from Oregon and Canada came to duke it out here in WA. There where 7 racers running the Awesomatix A700 touring cars.

In Stock Touring car A700's were qualified second (Mike Malkinson) and fourth (Frank Bartilozzi) in Stock TC. Mike Malkinson, in the Yellow car, finished 2nd in the A-main but unfortunately Frank pulled his car off in the main. Devin Patterson took the TQ + win.

In Modified Touring car, Jake Danilchik qualified 2nd behind the TQ Kody Knudtson and brought the his A700 home in 2nd less than 1 second behind Kody. Jake's car is the white and orange car in the video.

Thanks to Jake Danilchik for the write-up.
