Penrith District Nitro Racing member and Team Serpent driver Chris Stanley competed in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) State Titles (Canberra Australia) over the 6-8 June 2014.
In the cold conditions Chris managed to TQ his Novarossi ISON powered Serpent Cobra GT, a whole lap ahead of his nearest competitor.
During the 30 minute final Chris had a comfortable lead up until his final fuel stop, where his normally reliable Novarossi flamed out. After some anxious moments his trusty pit men Brayden Stanley (Chris’ 8 year old son) Shaun Kaltenbacher fired the Novarossi back up and he cruised to a 3 lap win.
Other Serpent Cobras also finished 3rd, 4th, 5th, 8th and 9th. Fifth spot was taken by Greg Temme, another Penrith driver who was running the new RTR version of the GT.
Special thanks goes to Walter RC Hobby City, the Australian Distributor of Serpent products, for the great support and combination of the Cobra GT and the Novarossi.
