The Decider – Rd 4 of the 2018 Spring Super Cup Recap!

The 4th and final round of the 2018 JConcepts Spring Super Cup was held at Newred Hobbies in Ocala, Florida, that wrapped up a fantastic spring edition of the long-running Florida race series. With championship points on the line, the final round always becomes the most crucial race as overall results are decided by taking points from the best 3 of the 4 series races. Do well here, you get to drop your lowest score that might just boost you up a few spots on the overall.

Newred is a unique track that consists of Florida clay/dirt mix and sealed for low dust and high traction. The jumps are man-made consisting of wood construction and then carpeted over to provide grip and consistency. With the tire choice being a slick or semi-slick tire, the speed and intensity are off the charts. The finale layout was challenging requiring a degree of high technical skills and a car that could handle high-speed corners without traction rolling. All in all, the layout was fun and provided an awesome arena for the drivers to battle it out for the Spring Super Cup Championship titles.
