Remarks – Running a car that was built for him by Yokomo designer Hayato Matsuzaki, Ronald’s car features a prototype of the Japanese manufacturer’s RTC system. Ronald said the new design has been created for better durability and to offer more toe gain options. Also different on the car is the reversing of the ESC and receiver positions to adapt the weight balance on the left side of the car. While weather conditions over the weekend made for challenging conditions, Ronald was very positive with the cars pace and performance during Thursday’s free practice before the rain interrupted the weekend’s schedule.
