Richard Volta is European B Champion
Last weekend saw the European ‘B’ Championship for 1/8th scale on-road held in Kirchberg, Austria. The race saw 125 drivers in attendance and after 4 thrilling qualifying rounds it was Shepherd Velox driver Richard Volta that claimed the pole position ahead of Novarossi employee Michele Baruzzi driving a Serpent in 2nd. The 3rd spot went to Mugen racer Marco Müller from Switzerland, while the final direct qualifying position was taken by another Serpent racer, Agostinelli Giordano. The 45 minute final was won by Richard Volta who never lost the lead and in the end finished nearly one lap in front of young Italian Serpent racer Alberto Tedeschi in 2nd. Michele Baruzzi rounded out the podium in 3rd, finishing only 0.2 sec in front of Serpent team mate Domenico Calce who finished 4th. This was the first European Championship title for the young Shepherd Team and comes only 3 month after the release of the Velox.
