While we will be doing some filming here for Kyosho, at this point, we will not be filming a full episode of “Come Drive With Us” at the Nitro Challenge this year. The importance of this race will undoubtedly influence the season, so we will definitely be filming B-Roll for CDWU’17!
Even more importantly, TheDrach will be running Open & 40+ Nitro Buggy with his Samurai powered Mugen MBX7R!
Our 4th season of “Come Drive With Us” is shaping up to be a pretty good one! We kick off the season by shooting some B-Roll at the “Aneheim 1” of R/C…the Nitro Challenge. The theme for this year, due to the CRAZY #SillySeason is “Change”. DNC will give us our first look at new equipment for a few of the top drivers!
Ty Tessmann – XRAY
Cody King – HB Racing
Ryan Maifield – Mugen Seiki
After DNC we are off to Tennessee for the Psycho Nitro Blast; in all truthfullness, I don’t like shooting indoors, but really looking forward to this event. The show the organizers put on is fantastic; really looking forward to this event.
After PNB, it’s back west for The Dual; the premise of this race is so unique. One Race, one winner, two tracks. That’s right, two tracks! Day 1 is held at the Pro-Line Racing test track; Day 2, Thunder Alley. I’m not sure how the qualifying goes or how the winner is determined but this event is going to be wicked. It’s awesome to see new ideas being introduced into the top level of Racing.
Next up, we switch gears a bit to 1/10. It’s been a while since we did a 1/10 event, and Dustin Evans as well as Ty Tessmann switching chassis this fits well into the season theme of “Change”. We’ll be covering the Pro-Line Surf City Classic hosted by OCRC.
We follow up the 1/10 action at Surf City with the final event of the ’17 season…the 1/10 IFMAR Worlds held near Xiamen China!
