The final round of the Esperance Bay RC Car Club championship saw some good entrant numbers with several new local drivers and visiting drivers from Bunbury and Kalgoorlie.
Shortcourse truck qualifying had Kane Holt take the TQ position, but in the finals Shortcourse specialist Paul Eather found his rythm to take yet another victory, with Holt in second after some tight battles all the way to the last corner with Ewan Mack third.
The buggy class was stacked with talent with the Dexter family in attendance from Bunbury, with Aaron Dexter being last years Australian junior champion and running inside the top 10 outright in this years open national championship rounds, his younger brother Ben and father Tom are also skilled drivers.
Also Kalgoorlie's Tyson Walsh has been training hard for months in preperation for a big international race in October so the local drivers were going to have their hands full.
Aaron Dexter TQ'd by the slimmest of margins over Tyson Walsh with just a couple of seconds between them in some sessions.
Buggy B final was won by Tom Dexter, with Pat Malone second from Casey Winfield 3rd.
The buggy A final saw the front 3 tangle in the first corner allowing local driver Kane Holt to break into the early lead chased by Walsh, Holt led for several laps before the dialled in Walsh applied enough pressure to force Holt into some mistakes, Walsh went on to put together a fantastic race to maintain a ten second lead for the win over the talented Aaron Dexter who fought back to second, with his younger brother Ben battling hard late race with Holt to take third, Cody Mack raced to a solid 5th from an unlucky Pat MacAleese who was running strong until losing a wheel mid race relegating him to 6th.
The EBRCCC's next event is this Sunday 24th, The Southern Shortcourse Shootout with Collie, Albany and Kalgoorlie clubs in attendance, spectators are welcome and entry is free.
