The 2010 IFMAR ISTC Electric Touring Car World Championships were held from July 1st-3rd in Burgdorf (near Hanover) in Germany. Tamiya Racing Factory (TRF) was there in force, with Marc Rheinard laying down the gauntlet by taking the top qualifying position with his TRF416X. He then took full advantage by winning the first two A-Main finals to claim the world championship title. Having won the title in Thailand back in 2008, this win makes it two titles in a row for Marc and is also his third overall. This is also Tamiya’s fourth world championship title, following wins in 2002, 2004, and 2008. Other TRF drivers also put in strong performances, with Elliott Harper taking 3rd place on a tie-break, Jilles Groskamp taking 6th place, and Viktor Wilck taking 10th place, thus giving Tamiya four Top-10 finishers.
