Alberto Garcia wins Madrid Champs Rd3

Alberto Garcia wins Madrid Champs Rd3

Last weekend, Serpent team took part in another Madrid Champs 2013 and Alberto Garcia sent this report. ‘During practice rounds, we got a good feeling with the car. The track was really dusty, so we decide to wait until the line was clear to change something on our Cobra 811 2.0. At the end, we had only to change shock oil because of the high ambient temperature of 30ºC. Qualifying was ok, Oscar Navarro qualified 8th and I was able to be TQ’d in all rounds. We bumped up to the main final without major problems. I won Semi-A and Oscar Navarro finished 2nd in semi-B.

Neumann's reign in 4WD continues with TQ no.7

Joern Neumann’s domination of 4WD Buggy in the TLR/Spektrum Euro Offroad Series remains intact after the German claimed his 7th consecutive overall TQ honour to put him in the best position possible to end the second season of the EOS as the only 4WD race winner since the creation of the series.  After posting only the fourth fastest time in Q2, the European Champion bounced back in Q3 to become the only driver to complete a 20-lap qualifier, a feat he would repeat in the final qualifier to lead a Team Durango 1-2-3 on the grid with Q2 pace setter Michal Orlowski set to carry the No.2 on his DEX410 and Hupo Honigl due to line his example up third for tomorrow’s triple leg A-Main.
