The first round of the 2017 South-African ORE national championship was held at the Welkom RC Arena over weekend 04 and 05 March 2017. This indoor asphalt facility is the venue that will host the 2018 IFMAR ISTC 1/12 world championship and that has revived the RC racing in South Africa. For the first time in many years there were five TC Modified mains, a full 1/12 modified main as well as a full main in 1/12 Stock as a new worlds class. The track had great traction with a technical but fast layout for the event. The revival also saw at least 7 different chassis manufacturers represented in the TC Modified class.
