Team HB factory driver Teemu Leino is at the huge EFMOD racing
facility in Izmir, Turkey, on the west coast of the country at the
EFRA 1/10th Touring IC European Championships. He's racing the HB
R10 car and stopped to give us his views on the week so far
ahead of the qualifying rounds, which started today.
Teemu says, "Today it's going pretty good, qualifying is just
about to start for us and the facility is one of the nicest in...Continue Reading
This year 1/8 buggy Euro's will be in Sacile, Italy. Track and
facility is very nice and its placed next to the alps so view is
nice as well. From HB HPI racing we had David Ronnefalk, Reno
Savoya and me attending for this race.
Practice was on friday and saturday half day so we had many
practice rounds as there was not that many entries this year at
warm up. Even there was not as many entries as past years most of
the top drivers were...Continue Reading
Team HB's Teemu Leino leads the way at the IFMAR Worlds in
Bangkok, Thailand, driving his R10 faster than all the other racers
in the first and second rounds of controlled practice.
Teemu had this to say about his performance so far: "The track

helped the Team HB driver pull just slightly farther ahead of the
competition, many of whom who are improving their pace with...Continue Reading
The final started well, I knew I just had to keep up with
Robert, but after the second or third refueling, the fuel tank
broke, I thought it was the engine going rich because the car
wasn't shifting into second, but it was the fuel tank broken, it

And then it finally broke after the 35 minute mark when we were
getting refueled, then my mechanic changed to a new fuel tank and
the engine was running perfect again so I lost...Continue Reading
So for qualifying, the first round I wasn't able to do the
warmup because I couldn't start the engine, but the track was the
fastest that time of the day so that was my fastest run.
The second run we had rain one heat before so we had no grip, in
the third round there was too much sun so again we didn't improve,
in the fourth round no one improved because of the track
conditions, but still, qualified well, so into the Semi, hoping
that goes...Continue Reading
