Lutz takes E-Buggy win at the Battle of the Sikest

Last weekend’s Battle of the Sikest saw Tekno RC’s Joe Bornhorst taking the TQ in the 1/8th E-Buggy class over some of the fastest drivers in 1/8th electric racing. Bornhost then would take the opening A-main with a tone to tone victory over Tekno teammate Ryan Lutz who came in 2nd. In the second leg Joe would make a mistake in the first corner to give Lutz the lead. For the next few minutes the entire field would battle it out and Lutz would hold onto to take the win in A2, while Joe finished in 2nd. The third and decisive A-main would have the teammates Bornhorst and Lutz swapping the lead countless times. Side by side for nearly five minutes it would come down to Bornhorst making a mistake giving Lutz the room to take the overall win. With Bornhorst on the runner-up spot Kyosho’s Cody King would round out the podium.

Miguel Matias takes Portuguese 1/10th buggy titles

Last weekend the final round of the Portuguese 1/10th electric off-road national championship was held at the same indoor location the season kicked off earlier this year. The 2WD class title was already decided with Miguel Matias claiming the 2014 championship with a clean sweep ahead of Nuno Roque and Marco Timoteo. In the 4WD class the title was still up for grabs with Miguel Matias and his team mate Bruno Coelho battling for the overall win. Unfortunately due to racing at the IFMAR 200mm Worlds, Bruno was not able to attend the race and so Miguel quite easily won the race from pole position to snatch the 2014 title from Bruno Coelho and Nuno Roque.
