Having already competed and successfully qualifying for the 2013 Worlds by placing both his 2wd and 4wd Tekin powered offroad buggies into their respective A-mains, Ty Tessmann would continue on with his “Super” Nats by beginning the 1/8 and SC portion of the ROAR Nationals.
Early on it was clear that Ty’s Tekin powered Hot Bodies D12 “Tekno-e” would be in contention for the win. Ty TQ’d all 4 rounds of qualifying giving him the un-contested overall TQ for the triple A-mains. In A1 Ty lead from start to finish taking the win from his TQ position. A2 Ty had some pressure from AE’s Steven Hartson who had a chance for the lead when Ty barrel rolled, amazingly landing back on his wheels. Within a few more turns though Hartson went wide giving Ty the lead again! Ty buckled down and never relinquished the lead, taking the win in A2 and the overall 2012 ROAR 1/8 Electric Buggy National Title!
Congratulations to Ty Tessmann!
Fellow Tekin teammate Jesse Robbers and Tyler Vik would both also make the A-main with their Tekin powered D12 “Tekno-e” buggies. All of the A-main Tekin powered drivers utilized the Tekin Rx8, Tekin T8 1900, and Hotwire USB device along with “Vegas” 223 software.
