IFMAR World Championships Gubbio 2022
23 September 2022
The last week saw the IFMAR Worlds Championships in Gubbio Italy.
The week saw a successful set of results for our small team which included support from Andy Murray from the Schumacher factory.
In the IFMAR Formula World Cup class it was Schumacher’s Andreas Stiebler that would take the victory with his Icon 2. Sadly he could only make legs 1 and 2 of the finals due to having to rush off to catch his flight back home due to the rescheduled finals. However he managed to do enough in these 2 legs to become the Champion.
Adreas's car was powered by a Hobbywing G3 21.5T Motor, Hobbywing Speed Control, Sunpadow LiPo and Highest Servo.
IFMAR Formula World Cup Winner 2022 for Andreas and the Icon 2.
Andreas' Set up sheet can be found here.
In the premier Modified class Michal Orlowski, would lead the team with Mattia Collina and Pekko Iivonen would be looking for good results. Michal would qualify 10th in the A main and with 3 solid finals would claim 6th overall. Michal drove brilliant in all 3 legs and had some real good pace, a very good result with such talent on the drivers stand.
Michals Schumacher Mi8 was equipped with Hobbywing 4.5t G3 motor and XR10 Pro G2S ESC, Sunpadow 6500mAh HV Platin battery, PowerHD S15 servo and MR33 accessories.
