The CETC is very pleased to show off the handout spec motor from ORCA that will be used for the 2017 race season. Using the awesome ORCA RT Series motor, the timing has been fixed at 30 degrees to give good on track performance and close racing thanks also to the use of blinky mode ESCs and a fixed gear ratio. For the Sunpadow Stock class racers will use the 13.5T ORCA motor while for the Serpent Formula class racers will utilise the 21.5T variant. The motors will be included in your first entry at the CETC.
Red RC China are proud to introduce the CETC, Chinese Electric Touring Car Championships, a 4 round electric onroad racing series that travels along the South Eastern China seaboard. With major backing from EP newcomers Infinity, the CETC presented by Infinity will kick off in late March at the Amazing Indoor Arena in Guangzhou, before traveling to Xiamen, Shanghai and finally Hong Kong. With additional support from Serpent and Sunpadow batteries, the series will cater for Modified Touring, Pro Stock Touring and Formula, all classes to run on handout Sweep Racing tires, with Pro Stock and Formula also using handout spec motors from ORCA.
Not just offering a well organised and presented championship, the series aims to promote & grow the sport of RC in this emerging market as well as nurture and prepare up and coming talent for racing on the international stage. With commitments from our series sponsors, we will have a number of top name international racers at all rounds of the series, who will not only put on a display of driving but who will also answer questions on setup and give workshops to interested racers.
Racing at some of the country’s premiere facilities, the 2017 CETC presented by Infinity is set to kick off on March 25-26 at the all-new Amazing Indoor Arena in Guangzhou in the south of the country. Round 2 will take place at the impressive outdoor ARC International Raceway in Xiamen, host of this year’s IFMAR EP Offroad Worlds, on June 3-4 before heading east to Shanghai on July 22-23 for round 3 to the World famous RCI V2 indoor carpet venue. The season concludes September 23-24 with round 4 at another new track, Twin RC Speedway in Hong Kong where we will crown our first CETC season Champions.
