Superlative R/C Racing in Hong Kong
There was plenty of wheel-to-wheel racing action to be seen in the Tamiya R/C Asia Cup 2017, which was the 20th running of this prestigious event. Organized by Tamiya official agent Oriental Trading Co., the meet took place in the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park from August 25th to 27th. Brushing off the disruption caused in Hong Kong by a major storm, 90 top R/C drivers from nine countries and areas across Asia (Hong Kong, Indonesia, South Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, China and Macau) competed in Jr. Buggy, Super Stock, M-Chassis, 4WD GT and TRF classes, and with the winners of the M-Chassis and 4WD GT classes in line for a ticket to Japan and the Tamiya R/C World Championships, the competition was fierce indeed. As a complement to the races, R/C tractor truck and racing truck events were also held to show off Tamiya’s wide range of hobby products.
