Tekno RC team driver Derek Cathcart wins 4×4 Short Course and Electric Buggy classes at the Coliseum Classic race held at RC Fun Park while young Seth VanDalen gets the win at the Sub Zero Challenge held at the 510 Raceway, congrats to both drivers! Here is a small report from each race:


Coliseum Classic, report from Derek Cathcart:


  • CAM02564-2
  • CAM02568
  1. 1
  2. 2

Friday practice went well as I tried a few new settings and had both my SCT410.3 and EB48.3 dialed in and super easy to drive on the hi grip surface. I had good runs all day Saturday in qualifying and took the TQ in both SC 4×4 and 1/8th electric buggy. With my EB and SCT all dialed in I was ready for the A mains. I easily drove away from the field in both classes to secure the wins. Thanks to the RC Fun Park and crew for a great racing program and awesome facility.

Side note: Congratulations to Mike Prieto ( Pops) for winning the Tuesday and Saturday points series for the second time in a row using his Tekno SCT410.3

Sub Zero Challenge, report from Seth VanDalen:


This weekend we hosted the 3rd annual Sub Zero Challenge at my home track in Foley MN, the 510 Raceway. With 4 round of quals on Saturday and Triple “A” mains Sunday. I ran Mod Buggy, 4wd Buggy and 4wd Short Course. I TQ’ed Mod Buggy and 4×4 Short Course and missed the 4wd Buggy TQ by .3 of a second. In the Mod Buggy class I was able to win A1 and A2 to take the overall. In 4wd Buggy I won A2 and A3 to take the overall. In 4wd Short Course I won A1 and A3 to take the overall. So a near prefect weekend with 3 wins and 2 TQ’s. Thanks to my sponsors, Tekno, Team Orion, Futaba and Proline.
