The 2017 Castle Creations Off-Road Jam was held this past weekend at Fastlane Raceway in Kansas City, MO and was organized by T5 Race Announcing. The race was a great success, we enjoyed seeing old and new friends, had an opportunity to showcase our new 1:10 scale ESC and sensored motors and even cheer on our very own Taylor James who took 2nd in the 4WD Mod Buggy class!
There is no doubt the 2017 race season is officially kicked off. Make sure to subscribe to the Castle Creations YouTube channel for more in depth footage of this event and more!
Congratulations to Team Castle Racer, Nic Case, who has been officially recognized by Guinness World Records as the designer, owner and driver of the fastest, battery-powered remote-controlled car in the world!
Case made the run back in late October, documenting his efforts in accordance with Guinness World Record guidelines. He then had to submit his documentation and await Guinness’ validation of his data and his accomplishment. (not that any of us doubted him, but this is what it takes to make it “official”.)
Here is a link to Nic’s record that is now on the Guinness World Records website.
All of us at Castle Creations are proud to have been a part of Nic and his entire team and their relentless pursuit to become the first R/C car to surpass 200 MPH and the effort it took to be recognized as a world record holder. Thank you Nic for believing in and trusting Castle products to help get you there.
And, just because it’s so darn cool, here is the world-record setting video of the spectacular 202.02 MPH run in his custom-built R/C Bullet!
