Lee Martin retains 2wd buggy European title
Lee Martin has retained his EFRA European 1/10th 2wd buggy title in Fehring in the south of Austria. Raced on what is normally a 1/8th scale track, and who will host next months 1/8th EFRA European Championships, Lee took his Speed Passion powered Tamiya chassis to the top qualifier spot ahead of recently crowned Swedish National Champion David Ronnefalk (Kyosho) with multiple European Champion Hupo Honigl (Durango) third. The first A-main was one by Lee ahead of fellow Brit Neil Cragg (Associated) with Hupo taking the 3rd spot. Leg two of the mains would see Lee make a mistake allowing the young Swede Ronnefalk to take a very close win in front of Worlds podium finisher Joern Neumann (Durango) in 2nd with Lee Martin recovering to 3rd setting up a title showdown for the 3rd and final A-main leg. Lee Martin would keep his calm in this decisive main and claim the win and overall title ahead of Ronnefalk in 2nd, who claimed the overall runner up spot and junior title, while Neil Cragg would finish 3rd claiming the final overall podium spot. Now the racers change their focus to the 4wd class with practice today followed by qualifying on Friday and Saturday morning with the finals being held on Saturday afternoon.
