2024 RCRA 1/10 EP Offroad NSW Titles presented by Campbelltown Hobbies

Updated: Apr 18



13/04/2024 – Day One (4WD + SCT)


After Friday’s practice day where 699 individual sessions were logged on the timing system in a very busy day, Saturday was day one of the 2024 RCRA 1/10 EP Offroad NSW Titles presented by Campbelltown Hobbies. With 90 drivers competing across 96 entries in the three classes being run (4wd Stock Buggy, 4wd Modified Buggy and Short Course Truck), it shaped up as one of the best events in quite a while.


With this being the venue for the 2024 RCRA 1/10 EP Offroad Australian Championships (in October 2024), and the recently announced 2025 IFMAR 1/10 EP Offroad World Championship (in October 2025), being awarded to Australia and the Hills Offroad RC Club. The calibre of competitors in attendance whom are starting their journey towards these upcoming events, ensured that lap records would fall, racing would be intense and the expectations of many were going to be high.


The format for the event was IFMAR style qualifying with the drivers best 2 placed rounds from the 4 x 5 minute qualifying runs being taking for their qualifying position in the finals. Then the drivers best 2 results from the 3 x 5 minute finals being run.



4wd Stock Buggy


With 28 drivers entered, the quality and depth of competition ran deep in the field making it a hard-fought battle to even be an A finalist in this field.


Round 1 of qualifying in slippery damp conditions had Andrew Selvaggi on top (10 laps/5:12.009), less than 8/10ths ahead of Dallas Gardiner (10laps/5:12.802), with Michael Stone rounding out the top three (10 laps/5:15.479).


Round 2 of qualifying saw Michael Stone hit back topping the time sheets as the track grip came up (11 laps/5:26.705), from Dallas Gardiner (10 laps/5:02.856), with Andrew Selvaggi in third (10 laps/5:03.700).


Round 3 of qualifying had Michael Stone again top the sheets going even quicker (11 laps/5:21.570), trading fastest laps throughout the run with Andrew Selvaggi who finished the round second (11 laps/5:24.362), with the ever-consistent Dallas Gardiner third (10 laps/5:00.520).


Round 4 of qualifying had Andrew Selvaggi come out on top with the fastest run of the day (11 laps/5:20.151), from Dallas Gardiner (11 laps/5:26.477), and Nathaniel White (11 laps/5:27.594).


After qualifying was completed the A finalists were:

1st – Andrew Selvaggi – 0 points

2nd – Michael Stone – 0 points

3rd – Dallas Gardiner – 4 points

4th – Nathaniel White – 8 points

5th – Glenn Welch – 8 points

6th – Justin O’Connell – 10 points

7th – Daniel Collier – 12 points

8th – Scott Hill – 14 points

9th – Jeffrey Pitt – 18 points

10th - Will Aiken – 18 points


4wd Stock Buggy Finals


With the times so close across many in the field, we were in for some close racing. A1 saw Andrew Selvaggi lead lap 1 from TQ, with Dallas Gardiner following closely in second and Glenn Welch taking advantage of first lap accidents to be in third. Michael Stone crossed the line at the end of the first lap in ninth after an altercation in turn three at the start of the lap. Selvaggi relinquished the lead with a mistake on lap 3 to Dallas Gardiner. Justin O’Connell was now in third place before having a mechanical failure a lap later dropping out of the race. This allowed Scott Hill to move to third only to have his own mechanical failure a lap later and pull out of the race. Stone making his way back through the field now took over third place in the order. Selvaggi took over the lead from Gardiner with a few laps to go and this is how they finished, Selvaggi, Gardiner and Stone in an eventful race.


In A2, Andrew Selvaggi led from start to finish to take the title, but he didn’t have it all his own way. Dallas Gardiner for the first half of the race pushed him along until he made a few mistakes dropping him down the order. Michael Stone was then catching and piling on the pressure setting the fastest lap of the event and a new lap record in the process to finish 9/10ths behind as they crossed the line for second place. Nathaniel White put in a solid drive to finish third.


With Andrew Selvaggi wrapping up the title in the first two finals, he chose to sit out A3. This left it clear for Michael Stone to storm home with a dominate win by over 12 seconds after taking the lead off the start to lead all the way. Dallas Gardiner fended off challenges from a heated battle behind of 4 to 5 drivers at times. Places were changing constantly for the lower places with Nathaniel White who was in third early, being passed by Scott Hill a couple of laps in with the eventual third place finisher Daniel Collier finding a turn of speed to take over the place a few laps later to finish just under 7/10ths off Gardiner. Behind them was an entertaining battle for the balance of the positions with 4 cars finishing in less than a 5 second window showing how competitive this field was.

4wd Modified Buggy


With a total of 60 entries, this was our largest class for the event and the biggest field anyone has seen for a very long time in Australia. On Friday, it felt more like an RC reunion for the decades as many shared war stories, caught up on the time that had passed, had many laughs, and reminisced about past adventures, events and battles. However, come race day, it got serious and focused very quickly, even the C-final you would mistake as the A-final at any other race meeting.


Round 1 of qualifying in the damp conditions had Lachlan Donnelly on top (11 laps/5:14.758), ahead of Ari Bakla (11laps/5:17.202), with Jarod Ment rounding out the top three (11 laps/5:17.810).


Round 2 of qualifying saw Ari Bakla lay down the fastest run (11 laps/5:06.484), from Lachlan Donnelly (11 laps/5:06.810), with Jarod Ment third (11 laps/5:10.451).


Round 3 of qualifying had Ari Bakla again top the sheets going even quicker (11 laps/5:04.031), just 8/10ths ahead of Lachlan Donnelly (11 laps/5:04.849), with the Jarod Ment again in third (11 laps/5:06.801).


Round 4 of qualifying had Ari Bakla secure the TQ spot with the fastest run of the day (11 laps/5:01.611), from Lachlan Donnelly (11 laps/5:03.074), and Jarod Ment locking in third (11 laps/5:09.862).


After qualifying was completed the A finalists were:

1st – Ari Bakla – 0 points

8th – Nathan Healy – 13 points

9th – Jarred King – 15 points

10th – James Muha – 16 points


4wd Modified Buggy Finals


The finals shaped up to be an epic battle as despite the top 2 dominating qualifying, the balance of the field was never very far behind. In A1 Ari Bakla took a tone-to-tone win leading every lap of the race, from Lachlan Donnelly early who then made a few mistakes to drop down the order. Jarod Ment took over the chase to finish just over 5 seconds behind Bakla. Lachlan Munday had a focussed drive to finish third pressuring Ment all the way finishing less than 2/10ths behind at the line.


A2 secured Ari Bakla the title with him taking a ‘lights-to-flag’ win leading every lap. Lachlan Donnelly didn’t make it easy for Bakla, applying a blow torch of intensity all the way to be just over 8/10ths off the lead at the finish. Jarod Ment and Lachlan Munday battled it out for the third place with Ment holding on early and Munday taking over the position to the finish halfway through the race.


In A3, Ari Bakla sat out the race after his first two final wins. This left Lachlan Donnelly a clear run to take control of the race from the beginning to lead every lap and finished around 6 seconds clear of Jarod Ment in second place. Donnelly also snuck through for the only 12 lap run of the day and set a new lap record in the process if his dominate win. The battle for third was hotly contested with Lachlan Munday taking control early of the position before Peter Seckold took over from Munday a few laps in. Matthew Couper then came through to take over from Seckold and did not relinquish the place to cross holding the place.

7th – Drew Hamilton - 10 points

8th – Sid Benjamin – 13 points


Short Course Truck Finals


After qualifying it was hard to see who could knock any of the top three from the podium, and A1 continued the form with James Muha leading every lap from TQ to take the win around 6 seconds ahead of Mitchell Pratt in sconed and Glenn Welch a further 4 seconds back in third.


A2 was a little different with an early issue for James Muha relegating him to third at the end of the first lap. Mitchell Pratt was the early leader before Glenn Welch took over to lead the next lap, before Muha came through to take the lead on the third lap and never look back and take the win by a couple of seconds and secure the title. Pratt took over second place the same lap to go on and finish in this position with Welch to cross the line in third.


James Muha came to race and try and clean sweep the finals in A3, but it wasn’t to be. After top every session all day and leading lap1 of A3, Mitchell Pratt took over the lead on lap 2 with Glenn Welch also passing Muha for second place. The order remained unchanged for the race from here with Pratt taking the win by 7 seconds from Welch and Muha a further 3.5 seconds behind in third.

14/04/2024 – Day Two (2WD + ST)

 

After Saturdays excitement and intensity, Sunday was day two of the 2024 RCRA 1/10 EP Offroad NSW Titles presented by Campbelltown Hobbies. With 100 drivers competing across 112 entries in the four classes being run (Junior 2wd Stock Buggy, 2wd Stock Buggy, 2wd Modified Buggy and Stadium Truck), this day of the event was by far the largest and tightest to get the full schedule completed. With the track evolution expected to continue to give further grip, many a lap record was in jeopardy of falling every round.  

 


Junior 2wd Stock Buggy

 

With 11 junior drivers ready to face battle, the decision was made and agreed to by all competitors to run them in one heat so all would get to run a final. As always the Juniors did not disappoint putting on a show with plenty of improvement and fun had by all.

 

Round 1 of qualifying in slippery conditions had Will Aiken on top (8 laps/5:02.179), ahead of Lincoln Isergin (8laps/5:09.928), with Zac Panic rounding out the top three (8 laps/5:10.456).

 

Round 2 of qualifying saw Will Aiken again go quickest (9 laps/5:18.327), from Lincoln Isergin (9 laps/5:20.408), with Zac Panic in third (9 laps/5:32.200).

 

Round 3 of qualifying had Will Aiken top the sheets going even quicker and secure TQ (9 laps/5:03.645), from Hassan Omar who finished the round second (9 laps/5:14.126), with Lincoln Isergin third (9 laps/5:18.211).

 

Round 4 of qualifying had Will Aiken clean sweep all qualifiers (9 laps/5:04.370), from Lincoln Isergin (9 laps/5:06.259), and Zac Panic (9 laps/5:07.218).

Junior 2wd Stock Buggy Finals


With a very full field of juniors, A1 went the way of the TQ man Will Aiken leading every lap on his way to the win around 18 seconds ahead of Zac Panic. Panic had to fight Hassan Omar for second place though in some great driving early in the race. Lincoln Isergin who was caught up on the first lap in an incident drove his way back from seventh on the first lap to finish third only 6/10ths behind.

 

A2 saw Will Aiken again lead from start to finish to secure the title setting a new lap record along the way. Lincoln Isergin finished second from Ryan Kwok in third after Fin Aiken held third from the first lap before Riley Lander-West took the place from him with Kwok taking over the position for the last few laps.

 

In the A3 final Will Aiken sat this one out after securing his title. This gave Lincoln Isergin a clear run to take the lead early from Ryan Kwok and Zac Panic. Kwok took over the lead on lap 2 briefly before Panic passed him two laps later and never relinquished the lead from there. It wasn’t easy for Panic though, with both Isergin and Kwok applying the pressure in some great racing between the three proving they are all potential champions for the future.  Isergin finished just 8/10ths behind Panic, with Kwok a further 1 second behind in third.

2wd Stock Buggy

 

With 30 drivers entered, the local contingent might have had the advantage with local track knowledge, but there were plenty of quality and depth of competition from the interstate gang ready to pounce on making a spot in the A-final theirs.

 

Round 1 of qualifying in saw the peoples champ, Dallas Gardiner take top spot (9 laps/5:02.600), by over 5 seconds to Michael Stone (9 laps/5:08.070), with Chris Milton rounding out the top three (9 laps/5:16.126).

 

Round 2 of qualifying saw Dallas Gardiner topping the time sheets again as the track grip started coming up (10 laps/5:24.793), from Andrew Selvaggi (10 laps/5:25.283), with Michael Stone in third (10 laps/5:28.540).

 

Round 3 of qualifying had Andrew Selvaggi come out and top the sheets going even quicker (10 laps/5:12.410), with Michael Stone finishing second (10 laps/5:19.668), with Nathaniel White third (10 laps/5:22.242).

 

Round 4 of qualifying Andrew Selvaggi come out on top with the fastest run of the day and securing TQ (10 laps/5:09.394), from Michael Stone (10 laps/5:13.136), and Nathaniel White (10 laps/5:17.040).

8th – Chris Primmer – 11 points

9th – Scott Hill – 14 points

10th Chris Lander – 18 points

 

2wd Stock Buggy Finals


With the times so close across the field, we were again expecting close racing and were not disappointed. A1 saw Andrew Selvaggi lead from TQ, with Dallas Gardiner dropping to the rear of the field lap 1 and Michael Stone slotting in to second behind Selvaggi. Selvaggi and Stone raced hard changing the lead between a number of times before Stone took the win by less than a second over Selvaggi. Chris Milton ran third the whole race to round out the top 3.

 

In A2, Andrew Selvaggi led from the start again Michael Stone finding his way past Gardiner on the start to shadow Selvaggi early. The lead changed between Selvaggi and Stone several times until Selvaggi made a mistake with a few laps to go, dropping him behind both Stone and Gardiner. Stone went on to win by over 3 seconds to secure the title, from Selvaggi whom made his way back past Gardiner on the last lap just 1 second behind as they crossed the line.

 

With Michael Stone sitting A3 final out after his two earlier wins, this left the remaining podium positions up for grabs across a number of drivers. Andrew Selvaggi led from the start and was never headed on his way to win by just under 13 seconds. Dallas Gardiner ran second the whole race with the battle behind him between Nathaniel White and Chris Milton for third. White and Milton swapped places a few times during the race before White prevailed to take third.3 seconds behind Gardiner.

2wd Modified Buggy

 

With 57 entries ready to hit the track, throwing down hot laps would be needed to take the win with the level and depth of competition going through to the B & C heats/finals.

 

Round 1 of qualifying in the damp conditions had Lachlan Donnelly on top (10 laps/5:09.649), just 3/10ths ahead of Ari Bakla (10 laps/5:09.940), with Lachlan Munday rounding out the top three (10 laps/5:11.026).

 

Round 2 of qualifying saw Ari Bakla lay down the fastest time for the run (11 laps/5:26.749), less than 2/10ths from Lachlan Donnelly (11 laps/5:26.900), with Jarod Ment third (11 laps/5:28.462).

 

Round 3 of qualifying was very tight had Jarod Ment top the time sheets (11 laps/5:26.291), just under 4/10ths ahead of Lachlan Donnelly (11 laps/5:26.674), with Lachlan Munday another 9/10ths behind in third (11 laps/5:27.663).

 

Round 4 of qualifying had Ari Bakla secure the TQ spot with the fastest run of the day (11 laps/5:21.430), just over 6/10ths from Jordan Isergin (11 laps/5:22.064), and Jarod Ment another 1/10th in third (11 laps/5:22.228).

 

After qualifying was completed the A finalists were:

1st – Ari Bakla – 0 points

10th – Sam Muffett – 18 points

 

2wd Modified Buggy Finals


The finals definitely were not to be missed, with spectators lining the fence to see who would come out on top after the closest qualifying of the event every round. In A1 Ari Bakla took the lead from TQ with Lachlan Donnelly right on his heels lap after lap. Donnelly constantly was looking for a gap on Bakla with every lap the intensity building. With just over 3 laps to go, Donnelly put a hard pass up the inside of the final hairpin which Bakla could do nothing to stop as Donnelly found the gap he had been waiting for. Donnelly went on to win by less than 4/10ths over Bakla. Further back Jarod Ment ran third the whole race with Jordan Isergin pressure him all the way with less than 4/10ths separating them at the finish.

 

A2 resumed the battle with Ari Bakla taking the early lead again with Lachlan Donnelly on his rear wing with both gapping the field early. Over many laps they had a few tangles which meant their early gap diminished to the rest of the field with at one stage all cars running nose to tail in what can only be described as an amazing sight to see 10 of the best Modified drivers in Australia running so close at speed. Lap 7 saw Bakla and Donnelly come together allowing Mathew Couper and Jarod Ment to capitalise taking over first and second respectively. Bakla dropped to third with Donnelly now fourth. Over the next three and a half laps Matthew Couper held the lead in only his third meeting back from his 3-year hiatus from the sport. Couper was driving like a man possessed with the throttle pinned and looking like he would not relinquish the lead. However, Ment found his way past around the outside before the gamble going back up the hill on the last tour and would go on to win by just 2/10ths over Couper. Bakla was 6/10ths further back with Donnelly another 4/10ths behind, in arguably the best final of the entire event.

 

There was standing room only in the house for A3 as no one was going to miss the showdown for the title with even the commentator running out of breath in the previous battles. Due to the mixed results thus far, we had 5 drivers still in with a mathematically chance to take the title depending how others finished, so it was all on the line. Ari Bakla from the moment of the tone, started to gap the field pulling a good 10 car lengths away in the first half a lap, then disaster. As he went to take the last tabletop, he cut the line too fine and clipped the track edging as he took the jump and rolled on to his lid dropping to fourth place once marshalled. This gave the lead to Lachlan Donnelly who had the field chasing him hard. On the second lap, uncharacteristically Bakla at the same point of the track clipped the track edging for the second time in as many laps as the car lifted off over the tabletop and rolled the car now dropping him to sixth once he was marshalled again. Meanwhile, lap after lap Jarod Ment was pressuring Donnelly for the lead of the race with the chasing pack still in tow. With four laps to go, Ment pulled tight over the ripple strip after the double-double section as Donnelly went wide to take the lead. Now Donnelly took his turn to lay the pressure down on Ment for 3 laps until a mistake by Donnelly on the last lap left the door open for Jordan Isergin to make a pass for second place. Isergin had been finding more pace every run all weekend upon his first visit to the venue. Ment took the win by just over 8/10ths from Isergin, with Donnelly a further 6/10ths back for another very tight finish. Bakla drove like a man possessed after the two mistakes to set a new lap record towards the end of the run to finish fourth.

Stadium Truck

 

12 entries showed us all how to have fun truckin’. The decision was made and all competitors agreed to run all 12 in the one heat so all could complete in the final also meaning the track is full of action on every run.

 

Round 1 of qualifying in slippery conditions had Lachlan Munday on top (10 laps/5:21.425), over 10 seconds ahead Ben Sterling (10 laps/5:32.363), with Scott Hill rounding out the top three (9 laps/5:15.947).

 

Round 2 of qualifying saw Lachlan Munday leading early but have a mechanical failure that forced him out. Ben Sterling hit the top of the time sheets (10 laps/5:10.331), from Brad Stafford (9 laps/5:06.990), with Gordon Shaw in third (9 laps/5:07.964).

 

Round 3 of qualifying Lachlan Munday shook off the last round DNF and took the round (10 laps/5:10.748), by over 21 seconds from Nathaniel White (10 laps/5:32.335), with Ben Sterling finishing third (9 laps/5:00.308).

 

Round 4 of qualifying had Lachlan Munday secured TQ with the fastest run of the day (10 laps/5:00.708), by over 11 seconds from Ben Sterling (10 laps/5:12.119), and Nathaniel White a further 8 seconds back in third (10 laps/5:20.588).

Stadium Truck Finals


Now it was time for the real show. The Stadium Trucks are always a crowd favourite with their mix of speed and coolness a factor in the fun of driving these beasts. A1 fell the way of Ben Sterling after Lachlan Munday tipped himself over at turn three and dropped back to ninth. Munday had a determined yet steady drive back through the field to finish second, some 7 seconds behind Sterling. Both Nathaniel White held second and Brad Stafford ran third for most of the race until the last few laps when Munday hunted them down and passed them both, with White going on to finish third.

 

A2 had Lachlan Munday lead every lap on his way to win over Ben Sterling 8 seconds behind. Nathaniel White ran third from beginning to end some 13 seconds a drift.

 

So with the title coming down to A3, both Ben Sterling and Lachlan Munday both taking a win each. Munday put the title beyond doubt from the start when he pulled the trigger and lead every lap, with a lead of over 11 seconds as he crossed the line for an extra lap on the field setting his fastest lap (and new lap record) on his victory lap. Sterling had a battle on his hands when Nathaniel White took second from him for a few laps before he found his way back past White to take second place. White after dropping the place held on for third till the end.

With the conclusion of racing Sunday, it brought a close to what we believe a very successful event. The club learnt a lot and we hope all will see improvements and an even higher level event run at the Australian Championships later this year. To all those who attended and competed, we thank you for supporting the event and clubs involved. Was great to see those who travelled from afar getting some laps and enjoying the facility and the clubs’ efforts.

 

We would like to thank all those who assisted in the lead up and on the day to make the event possible. Our next race day is scheduled for 5th May for our first scheduled club race meeting for the month. We hope to see you all there.
