IFMAR 8th Scale Offroad World Championships – Monday Seeding day recap
With 2 rounds of practice seeding rounds finished, we move one step closer to crowning a new 8th scale World Champion. The format was the same as practice with 10 minute seeding runs, but this time the results will count for seeding for tomorrow’s (Tuesday) qualifying rounds.
Just in case you missed the morning interview with WC, Spencer Rivkin, here is the pre-seeding update taken before the day started.
The JConcepts team is united and committed to helping each other with tire and compound choices. With the wind, every changing track condition, watering, sun, and heat…. has made it challenging to pick a tire that is perfect for the duration of the 10 minute runs. With watering inbetween every round, the track holds a great deal of moisture in the morning while the afternoon runs are much warmer with the sun out that could mean a different compound and tread design.
Here is a bit of action from round 2 of seeding with Spencer Rivkin to give you an idea of the track later in the day.
Here are the seeding round recaps by Jason to give you a full in-depth look on how the JConcepts team is doing in Vegas!
And finally practice seeding rd 2 at the very end of the day.
