The 2011 IFMAR Electric Buggy World Championships Warm-Up event, the precursor for the IFMAR World Championships in July, took place in Vaasa, Finland from May 20th to 22nd and featured an entry list filled with expert 2WD and 4WD buggy drivers from all over the world.
Tamiya Racing Factory (TRF) was once again in the thick of the competition and TRF driver Lee Martin dominated the 4WD class with his TRF511, converting his top qualifying position into an impressive win! In addition, Lee also achieved a respectable 4th place in the 2WD class with his TRF201. With the valuable race data gained from this event, the TRF team is looking foraward to challenging for the 2011 IFMAR World Championships which will take place at the same circuit this summer from July 17th to 24th.
Please continue to give your support to Team TRF and their machines in the races to come!
