Cavalieri Top Qualifier for 4WD Buggy

Cav TQ

Ryan Cavalieri is the Top Qualifier for 4WD Buggy at the Proline Cactus Classic, the World Champion putting in his third TQ run of event in the final round of qualifying ahead of Joern Neumann and defending champion Ryan Maifield. The slowest of the four qualifiers, Cavalieri topped Q4 by 1.3-seconds from Neumann’s Durango which will line up second on the grid and separate the two Associated stars who between them have won the 4WD Buggy Cactus title for the past four years. The last driver to beat the Ryans was Jared Tebo but the Kyosho driver will have to pull off something very special tomorrow if he is to be any challenge after a difficult days qualifying leaves him lining up 7th on the grid.

The only driver able to challenge Cavalieri for the overall TQ honours going into the fourth & final qualifier was 2WD Top Qualifier Naoto Matsukura but a serious of mistakes left the Japanese to claim the 6th fastest time. As a result the Team Yokomo driver will start the triple leg A-Main from 5th on the grid behind TLR young gun Dakotah Phend and Durango teenager Carson Wernimont who has shown well in 4WD this weekend.
