Arthur Eelen wins Belgian Blackjack race
Last Sunday saw the annual Blackjack race held in Belgium. Open to 1/8th scale off road cars it uses a Reedy style format where there are only finals, 3 to be exact and all of them 21 minutes long, hence the race name. The length of the finals, astroturf surface and pit strategy tactics meant racing was very close. Arthur Eelen managed to take the win in the Truggy class driving his Associated RC8T ahead of Losi driver Kris Verlies in 2nd and Bas de Konink in 3rd with a HongNor.
