TRF416 Takes a Double at
2007 JMRCA Touring Car All-Japan Championships!
The 2007 JMRCA Touring Car All-Japan Championships was held at Yatabe Arena in Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan from November 16th-18th. Tamiya Racing Factory (TRF) drivers were out in force with their new TRF416 machines, with Marc Rheinard taking the 1st place victory, Viktor Wilck taking 7th place, and Satoshi Maezumi taking 9th place in the Super Expert Class. In addition, Takayuki Kawano in the Expert Class used his position as top qualifier to take home the victory with his TRF416 as well. This double victory for the TRF416 clearly demonstrates the awesome capabilities of the new high-performance chassis!
Super Expert Class: Race Digest
Marc Rheinard qualified in 2nd position and started Round 1 of the Finals behind the pole-sitter, Matsuzaki. Rheinard was right behind Matsuzaki every lap, but at the very last corner of the final lap, Rheinard saw a brief opening and took full advantage, passing Matsuzaki on the inside line and taking the 1st place finish. For Round 2, Rheinard used a different, and equally effective, strategy, suddenly overtaking Matsuzaki at the end of a short straight during the 1st lap. He never looked back from there and went on to take a glorious debut win for Tamiya’s new TRF416!
The TRF416 Chassis Kit will be released in December, so be on the lookout for this high-performance machine!
Please continue to give your support to Team TRF and their machines in the races to come!
