HB and Ty Tessman Get 2nd at the NEO Race!

Wed, 18th April 2012

Ty competed at the Neo '12 race in Telford, UK April 6-10, this race is one of the biggest races of the year, it is likened to an indoor 1/8 offroad worlds, with all of the top drivers in the world in attendance. Day one of qualifying held the first 3 of 5 rounds of qualifying, Ty had a very good day taking the top qualifying position in round 1, in round 2 Ty qualified 2nd overall and then took TQ in round 3, this gave him overall TQ for Day 1.

Day two of qualifying, we used the last 2 qualifiers to try some setup changes which did not work as well as we had thought they would, Ty ended up qualifying second overall and started on the pole in the B semi. Ty's semi went very well, he was able to take the win moving him into the final but his semi time put him 2nd on the grid for the 45 minute final. In the final things went fairly well, in the first 9 minutes Ty managed to get by Jared to take the lead, Ty came into pit at 9 minutes giving the lead back to Jared which he held until his pit stop at 12 minutes. The 2 drivers pulled away from the rest of the field and battled back and forth, but with Jared doing one less pitstop, Ty was unable to regain the lead, and finished 2nd. All in all it was a good performance by Ty. Jesse Robbers also did well, getting into the A Final and finishing 12th overall.

All of Ty's equipment worked extremely well and we want to thank all of his sponsors for their continued support. Podium picture courtesy John Cary/Car Action
