The racing season is over in most countries, and most Championships have been decided. Joseph Quagraine managed to win the Finnish National Championships for the 3rd time running, and 5th time for THECar. What makes the championship special is that the first one was won in 2010 with THEPrototype, which means that THECar has been Finnish Champion every years since it first hit the track. In 2011 Ari Heinonen won with it. This years nationals showed some promising signs of a new generation of drivers getting into the fight for wins, with Joona Haatanen, Max Mört, and Joonas Hyvärinen all showing great form and huge improvements this year. Next year looks like it is going to be a tough one! With Bradley Baird also winning the Irish National Championships this year for JQRacing, Miguel Haasbroek is looking to become the third JQ driver to win his home nations championships, in a few weeks time. Below you can find the top 3 of the of the last race, as well as the overall series.
During the 2014 European championship JQRacing was introduced to the public. What is JQRacing? How is it different? What changed? So many questions need to be answered... Instead of sending a boring email with what is going on we decided to step in up, so the first ever RC related press conference was held! During the ongoing 2014 IFMAR world championship Joseph Quagraine has gathered all major media and team sponsors to give an idea of what JQRacing is all about. JQRacing is here to take RC to the next level by building a team were all team drivers with no exceptions will run the same equipment (with the much needed help of our sponsors: REDS engines, AKA Tires, LRP Electronics, Savöx Servos, GHEA accessories, Maugrafix Stickers, MIP Tools), wear the same clothing and represent in a professional manner. In addition the this JQThreads was also announced, a non RC company which will not only provide clothing for the team but also expand to other forms of motorsport starting from Motocross.
During the press conference, Heikki Naulapää introduced Cosmic Industries to the public, also revealing the Balancer body for THECar
Cosmic Industries, brainchild of Heikki Naulapää was also introduced to the public. Cosmic industries will join the long list of sponsors from now on, providing wing and bodyshell alternatives for THECar drivers. We want to welcome Heikki to JQRacing! We are sure that his talent and knowledge will be a great asset!

JQRacing Factory Team driver Rayan Medjoubi wins the penultimate round of the French national championship! Here is a report from Rayan:
The last round of the French nationals was held at the nice track of Savigny Le Temple, during the weekend of September 13-14. The race went great for me, in detail:
5 rounds of qualifying were done, Reno Savoya and Jerome Aigoin were missing but there was a strong attendance of other fast drivers like Yannick Aigoin, Jerome Sartel, JQP Sartel, Lorenzo Crolla, Jo Bacro, Guillaume Hebert, Tom Robin etc. The track was very difficult, bumpy and high traction, a difficult mix of conditions to have your car setup properly! During the practice rounds things were difficult because of the very challenging track, I made quite a few setup changes on my car and in the end it was perfect for qualifying. After 5 rounds of qualifying I was standing second on the grid behind Yannick Aigoin, car was getting faster and faster each round, giving me confidence for the result.
The track of Savigny Le Temple, fast and technical but can be hard to get your car set up properly!
The track was hard to drive on, the more cars were running, the more difficult it got. I started in pole position in the Semi B, in front of Renaud Monin and Jerome Sartel. Driving safe I crossed the line first after the 20 minute race. This would have me starting 3rd in the main final behind Yannick Aigoin and Tom Robin. After the start of the race I made quite a few mistakes and lost places but I quickly recovered back to 4th, many drivers retired from the race because of breakages and flameouts, as the race went on I got in the second spot with a fairly easy drive behind Lorenzo Crolla, after a 15 minute of great battle Lorenzo made a lot of mistakes and kept it together and went home with the win!!
Rayan's JQRacing THECar powered by REDS engines equipped with AKA tires on the way to the win!
Conclusion: THECar was very fast and easy to drive during qualifying and final No issues throughout the weekend (no breakages, flameouts) REDS R7 Evoke worked flawlessly AKA Tires provided great, consistent grip
Special Thanks to Slimane, man of few words and great mechanic, for his help!
Thank you to JQRacing for providing me with the best!
