Winning from the Middle

RC44 Worlds

© Pedro Martinez/ RC44 World Championship: Team Nika winning from the middle of the track


Watching Team Nika win the RC44 World Championships was a lesson in conservative tactics, the hallmark of Terry Hutchinson who was calling the shots for Vladimir Prosikhin.
