HPI and LRP take the Stadtmeisterschaft of Andernach in Germany!
During the 10/11 of June 2000, there was an annual race meeting called "Stadtmeisterschaft" held in Andernach (Germany). Beside nearly all of the German top drivers, there was also the multiple European champion Craig Drescher (Team Associated / LRP) attending the race. On Saturday, Andy Kraemer from Team LRP was already showing that he was in brilliant form this weekend. Setting TQ by 3 seconds in front of Sascha Falter (Team Associated / Keil) and Craig Drescher. On his last run on Saturday, Andy was TQ by 5 seconds before rain stopped him during the last two laps of his run. After the last heat on Sunday, Craig Drescher was TQ, only 0.3 seconds in front of Andy and 0.6 seconds in front of Sascha Falter.
The first A-main was won by Andy Kraemer. To keep up the excitement for the last final, Andy tried to win the second A-main driving backwards, after realizing that he switched plus and minus... In the third final, a second place was enough to win the race overall!
used by Andy to win:

HPI takes second place at ISTC Cup meeting!
HPI/Team Orion racer Jean-Marc Betticher (winner of the 1999 Swiss Touring Car Championship) took home a hard-fought second place for the HPI racing team this past weekend! Racing on a slightly bumpier track than last year's inaugural ISTC (International Scale Touring Car) track, Jean-Marc was one of only five racers to have perfect scores at the end of three days of racing. Each racer participated in thirteen rounds of racing that pitted them against nearly every other racer, and the lowest six scores were dropped and the finishing times combined. Each racer was scored on the best seven races (20 points for a win) and ties were broken by the lowest combined time.
While Jean-Marc had the fastest lap of the meeting at 15.72 seconds, he was bettered by Billy Easton by only 8 seconds after the weekend's races were finished! Jean-Marc beat 3rd place Mark Pavidis by nearly 20 seconds and 4th place Barry Baker by a lap! Other notable competitors included former ISTC champion David Spashett, Josh Cyrul, Craig Drescher (the highest-placing UK racer at the event) and Mike Swauger.
All the racers used the same spec tires from last year's competition, the M1 control tires. Jean-Marc used a Stratus body, Team Orion 12x6 Chrome motors and 30 amp discharge RC2000 batteries, even though 3000mAh cells were allowed for use. HPI option parts used by Jean-Marc included the #72027 Aluminum Center Mount, #72039 Pro Spur Gear Hub, #A789 Heat Sink Motor Plate, #72036 Aluminum Hex Hubs, #73006 and #73007 Woven Graphite Shock Towers, #A255 15T One-Way Pulley, our new #A497 Graphite Diff Hubs, upcoming #72030 Aluminum 8 degree Front Uprights and #72024 Aluminum Rear Upper Arm Mount. As Jean-Marc puts it, "The car was absolutely flying!!!!!!!!"
