You don’t have to look far in order to find events centered around the radio-controlled car hobby. From the United States, to Great Britain, to Hong Kong (and everywhere in-between) the spirit and community of R/C is alive and well. On-road racing enthusiasts have a wide variety of events to choose from, but one unique series is the Carisma DTM Cup, which will host its second round event on July 24.
Running at the ACO Racing Track in Hong Kong, this event is exclusive to Carisma M40S and GT10RS models. A DTM body shell must be run, along with a Carisma 3000KV sensorless motor with GQ control tires. Beyond that, the chassis setup is open to modifications.
There will be three qualification races run and three “finals” races to determine overall winners. Additional details can be found on the Carisma Facebook page.
If you can’t make it to the race yourself, you can always catch the highlights through Carisma’s YouTube channel. Here is one of the “finals” from Round 1, which was held in May.
