Vejrak, better known as “Meen V” thrilled the local crowd at RC Addict with a spectacular performance in the hour-long Final, driving his PROTOform P37-N from 4th on the grid to become the 5th different world champion in 5 editions of this event. PROTOform Race Bodies swept the final grid, with 8 other drivers following Meen V’s lead racing the P37-N to combat the ultra-high grip surface, and Team PROTOform’s Francesco Tironi sticking with the SRS-N.

Multi-talented Japanese star Atsushi Hara came up just short once again, matching his runner-up result from the Electric Worlds in July. Tironi bumped his way up into the finals through 3 preliminary races after struggling in qualifications, then drove up to the podium for his best ever Worlds finish.
