Joseph Quagraine wins both Nitro and Electric classes at the first round of Finnish Nationals, held in Jyrkkälä track, Turku, after an eventful race! During the warmup for the 45 min final and after a radio problem Joseph’s throttle servo jammed at full throttle and broke the engine. Having called for a 10 minute delay to fix the problem Joseph and his mechanics rushed into the pits, changed the radio tray and engine,made it back on time, tuned the engine and started the race from the last position. With 7 minutes to go Joseph took the lead and kept it until the end of the race, giving him the win! Here is a video showing the engine and radio tray change:

    JQRacing - THEDriver Funding

    There is something that bothers me in this ranking, does it bother you? It stings my eyes .... This ranking shows the 25 best drivers in the world, but only car brands that can afford these drivers, and those brands are always the same. If it is only a question of money now, why don't we, the JQ customers, team drivers, and supporters, help to pay a driver for this list?
