During the weekend 17-19th of August, at the fantastic “Rheinard build” Motodrom in Andernach, that hosted the prestigious ETS race series several months ago, has been held the final of the German HPI Challenge race series. In this season, there were 82 regional races, 782 starters doing 2164 starts and with these numbers, the organizers claim to run the biggest race series in Europe.
Fantastic weather (up to 33 deg) and 120 racers provided great racing action during the entire weekend. The #120066 HPI Challenge 36A tire and disc wheel sets were used to keep the racing close and cost-controlled.
The Rookie Challenge is for beginners and used HPI Saturn 27T Brushed Motor and the all-new HPI Challenge 36A wheel/tire set. With a fixed gear ratio, the top speed was 30 km/h, providing fantastic racing action from the start to the finish of the last final.
HPI Racing gives special attention for the young drivers and the Top 3 under 16 years old pilots of the season, from each region, were awarded vouchers of 300€, 200€ and 100€. Not bad at all!
