LRP Touring Car Masters
March 14-15, 1998
Inspired by the traditional "Nicolas Cup", a German club MSC Eppelheim and LRP Germany organized a fantastic Touring Car race on carpet as never seen before! More than 60 drivers from 8 countries raced in the "190mm Touring Car Class". Another 40 drivers competed in a kind of "Stock Class" (handout tires and motors) for three LRP Team Contracts.
Christian Wittke is 20 years old, and from what we hear, a popular German R/C driver. Starting in 1/12 scale racing some years ago, he is now racing in all the on-road electric classes, including Touring Cars, 1/12 scale, Pro 10 and Formula 1). He's previously won other championships throughout Europe in the Youth class.
