Soren Boy Holst wins Super Stock at Danish nats Rd1

Soren Boy Holst wins Super Stock at Danish nats Rd1

The first indoor race of the Danish electric on-road season was held in the city of Randers on a purpose-built track. The carpet used caused a lot of problems for the drivers as the long hair made for changing grip conditions and tons of broken ball bearings. In the Super Stock class it was Soren Boy Holst (T.O.P.) who was in control of things as he was quick right from the start and he also took all three qualifying rounds to grab the pole position for the finals. Niklas Engholm (Awesomatix) put his car in 2nd place while Mad Callesen (Serpent) rounded out the top 3.

Borja Hernandez wins finale in Fuencarral

Borja Hernandez wins finale in Fuencarral

The final round of the Spanish 1/8th Nitro Buggy National Championship was held this past weekend in Fuencarral. With the absence of Robert Batlle (Mugen), who already secured the championship, it was time for the “best of the rest” to show their skills and to score maximum points for the championship. Oscar Baldo (Mugen) soon made his ambitions clear by taking the TQ after the qualifiers and he would also start from pole position into the final. Borja Hernandez (Mugen) had other plans though as it was him and SWorkz’ Andres Marcelino who battled for the lead for a good part of the 45 minute final and at the end Borja took the win only 1.3 seconds on front of Andres. Behind the two Oscar Navarro (Serpent) completed the podium in 3rd.

Sergio Montesinos wins Spanish 1/8th on-road title

Ignacio Montesinos wins Spanish 1/8th on-road title

Mugen driver Sergio Montesinos is the 2014 Spanish 1/8th on-road champion despite only coming in 6th at the final round in Elche. The opening round of the championship, run in Madrid, saw Sergio ending on the runner-up spot despite a broken glow plug on his O.S. engine. Round 2, held in Valencia, had the Mugen driver end the main final in 3rd place but a TQ and a win at race number 3 secured him the championship early. The final race was held in Elche and very unstable weather with rain on Saturday and during the main final spoiling any chances of another victory but with the championship already secured Sergio could take it easy in the final.

Thanks to Ignacio Montesinos for sending the report.

Collari secures TQ for ENS title decided

Lamberto Collari is Top Qualifier for the title decider of the Euro Nitro Series with championship protagonists Robert Pietsch and Simon Kurzbuch set to line up directly behind the 9-time World Champion for the 45-minute Fiorano encounter.  Going into the fifth & final round of qualifying with the exact same results as Pietsch, Collari would get the better of the German by just 0.225 seconds to secure his third TQ run of the day and with it pole position.  Missing out on the championship bonus point on offer for the TQ, Pietsch will start the season finale from 2nd on the grid with Kurzbuch set to carry the number 3.

Pietsch takes penultimate qualifier

Pietsch takes penultimate qualifier

The overall TQ at the ENS season finale in Fiorano will be decided in the fifth & final round of qualifying after Robert Pietsch claimed his second TQ run in the penultimate qualifier.  Taking the round from Lamberto Collari, the two former World Champions now have identical scores going into deciding qualifier. While becoming Top Qualifier will make little difference to Collari’s ENS season, for Pietsch the bonus point on offer for securing pole position could prove vital in terms of his battle with Simon Kurzbuch to become the championship’s inaugural 1:8 Champion.  Kurzbuch, who leads the standings by 2-points would for a third time complete the Top 3 for the round.
