Team Driver Jeremy LeDonne bringing home more trophies from Motorama 2017.

Report by: Jeremy LeDonne

This weekend I went to Motorama in Harrisburg PA to race RC cars and have fun. I raced on the big 1/8 track running all 3 expert classes, expert E-truggy, expert E-buggy, and expert 4×4 SCT. With 422 entries it was a long weekend of racing with a lot of competition. We only got two practice sessions so there wasn’t a lot of time to make a lot of changes and get some track time.

During the qualifiers I had ups and downs with all the cars and being qual points it hurt me a little. I managed to qualify 10th in 4×4 SCT, 24th in 1/8 E-truggy, and 29th in 1/8 E-buggy.

The 4×4 SCT A1 main was a tight race start to finish. I was running 8th on the last lap when I got spun out and dropped to 12th. In A2 main it was the same way and I would ended up 10th at the end. With a 12 and 10 I still ended up 12th overall for the weekend.

The 1/8 E-truggy C1 main I was trying to bump out of. The announcer announced me passing into 2nd for the bump spot so I guarded the position and made sure I didn’t make any mistakes. I came off the stand thinking I got the bump spot and I really ended up 3rd. The C2 main I ended up passing for the lead on the 2nd lap taking the C main overall win for the weekend.

In 1/8 E-buggy C1 I quickly moved up the field but on the 4th lap someone would slam me on the straight away and the marshal decided to watch the race instead. James Doherty was watching my race and ran half way across the track to marshal me before the marshal 4 feet away did. By the 5th lap I was lapped by the leaders and had no chance anymore. Taking a 12th in C1. In C2 I would have some good battles, finishing 8th. With a 12th and 8th still put me 11th overall in the C main for the weekend.

My Proline M4 holeshots were hooked up all weekend with minimum wear, thanks to Brian Lewis for the support!

My Tekin electronics didn’t skip a beat all weekend, thanks to Randy Pike for giving me the opportunity to run the best RC electronics in the business!
