Kyle McBride Race Report – 2012 QLD State Titles
This year the Queensland State titles were held at the Sunshine Coast Club, notorious for hosting some of the biggest and best events in Australia. With 120 entries with a great buggy and truggy field, it was going to be one of the biggest events in Australia this year. With everyone on a brand new track, choice of tire was the big question mark. Going into practice I had two seven minute practices to get it right before going into qualifying. Once qualifying came around I had both my Kyosho Inferno MP9 TKI3 and STRR evo set up good and ready to go.
I had almost a clean sweep in buggy qualifying with winning 4 out of the 5 qualifiers. I had a decent truggy qualifying but had dramas in the last qualifier losing my chance for TQ but still giving me second on the grid. By finals time, I was super confident with my cars and as the top 10 cars were bumped straight into the a main without having to complete a semi-final.
In both finals I managed to get out front and finish off both classes with a comfortable margin and took home the win. Big thank you to Kyosho, Pro-Line (M4 Calibers for both cars worked awesome all weekend), O.S Speed, Ko Propo, Neo + Fuels, Venom, Podified Engines, Maugrafix and Steven Love for painting my bodies.
