Bright prospects for Ronald Völker at the IFMAR TC WC!
The IFMAR World Championship in the Netherlands is currently developing into a fairytale for LRP team driver Ronald Völker. After taking the third podium spot at the 1/12 competition, the German is causing lots of excitement in the 1/10 competition.
He is undertaking his qualification rounds with unbelievable precision and speed. In the first run, Ronald was able to distance the second placed driver by more than a second – with Atsushi Hara surely not a bad driver. But it should even get better. In the second run, he was almost taking off ahead of the competitors. With a new set of tyres, he achieved a spectacular time: 5,9 seconds ahead of second placed Jilles Groskamp. Not only a few were astonished. In the third run, Ronald took it a little bit more quiet – “only” 6th place .. but he was still the fastest driver on old tyres.
Like when he achieved the third place in the 1/12 competition, Ronald relied on the strong support of the brand new technology from the blue is better factory. His Yokomo prototype BD5 was equipped with the first serial production version of the upcoming LRP Flow speed control. The completely new developed speedo, perfect for Modified and Stock racing, impressively states here as well, in combination with the LRP X20 BL motor, what high-end brushless speed controller really means.
