David Ronnefalk takes victory at Nitromania X

David Ronnefalk takes victory at Nitromania X

David Ronnefalk has won the gas buggy class at the Nitromania X event being held in Belgium this weekend. The young Swede was top qualifier with his Team Orion powered Kyosho, but a poor semi final meant he would start the main final from 11th on the grid. Following some early lead changes Losi/Novarossi man Adam Drake took over at the front and extended his lead out to a lap followed by Ronnefalk in 2nd and Elliot Boots in 3rd. The Drake started to make some errors and with 11 minutes to go David was only 11 seconds behind and closing. Some more mistakes from the American and the European B Champion was through to the lead, and when he pitted Mugen/RB driver Boots was up to 2nd. With 7 minutes left Ronnefalk went in for his final stop and this allowed Adam back to the front, but again more small mistakes from the American and some close battling saw Ronnefalk taking the win from Elliot Boots in 2nd with Adam Drake taking 3rd. Consolation for the American was that he won the brushless buggy event ahead of Joern Neumann in 2nd and David Ronnefalk in 3rd.
