For some, remote-controlled cars might just be a hobby. But for others, including racers at last weekend's state titles, it is anything but just a hobby.
The competitions once again brought miniature thrill-seekers from across Tasmania and Australia to Carrick for the annual races.
The event welcomed veterans and newcomers alike, including Lincoln Williams, of Bracknell.

RC Launceston secretary and titles coordinator Richard Green said the weekend went very well.
"We've had a lot of action on the track ... [We've had] very stiff competition especially the quicker classes," Mr Green said.
"It's been all guns blazing, even the stock class [cars with limits on motor power] driving.
"It's [titles] pretty competitive with about 18 guys vying for positions in the top ten race."
Mr Green said while the concrete course can be more unforgiving towards the small, intricate vehicles, there had been no major crashes during the racing.
"There's been a few minor crashes along the way but I haven't seen any massive breakages only the few usual little bits and pieces.," Mr Green said.
