Over the last 4 months I have attended the Thornhill winter series.
It was set up as a best 5 out of 7 rounds with 2 drops.
I only ran Pro Nitro Buggy in the series as that is my favorite class in 1:8. There were 42 different drivers in that class with lots of top guys from all around Texas.
Ethan ran Pro-Line M3 Fugitive Lites and Trifecta Lexan Wing
In the first round I was able to take the win after starting 2nd.
Two weeks later the second round was up and I was able to take the top spot in qualifying but ran into some bad luck in the main.
The third round was up and I had already planned a race out side of the series so I wasn’t able to attend.
After about a month break for the holidays it was time to go back racing! In this fourth round I was able to take TQ but In the warm up of the main my steering servo went out and put a end to my main before it even started.
In the 5th round I had my car feeling really good with all the new parts. At the end of qualifying I was able to TQ but in the main I made to many mistakes and finished third.
In round 6 I would qualify 2nd to teammate Noah Dickerson and finish 2nd.
With round 7 being the last round of the series all I needed to do was qualify and finish good. The first round didn’t start off great as I made to many mistakes and would get a 5th for the round. 2nd round I was able to make a cleaner run and finish second. In the third I was within 1-second of TQ and caught up to lap traffic and that slowed me down as it didn’t want to get into a crash. In the main I was running a pretty clean race till I made a mistake and went out side the track and lost a few spots. Was down to 6th and worked my way back to 2nd to take the overall win in the series!!
