McBride doubles at Australian 1/8 National Champs

The 2015 Australian 1/8 Fuel Off-Road National Championships were held at the Model Off-Road Buggy Club in Perth, Australia. As qualifying got underway, it was clear that Kyle McBride would be one of the drivers to beat for the title in the 1/8th Nitro Buggy and Truggy classes. Comfortable from the first lap, the 18-year-old drove with the experience of a top veteran and put himself in great positions for the main events. First up was the Truggy main where McBride jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, lapping the field twice. In the Buggy class the results were similar, with McBride putting three laps on the competition getting him his fifth Buggy Championship in a row.
