Fernando Almeida wins Rd2 Portuguese Nats

Last weekend, the second round of the 2007 Portuguese 1/8th scale off road National Championships took place on the Ortigosa track in Leiria. After qualifying it was Crono racer Nuno Casal Ribeiro that took the pole position spot for the main final, but just after the start he got hit by another car, damaging his exhaust badly and loosing him 2 laps in the pits getting it fixed. Getting back onto the track he drove a great recovery drive to bring himself back up to 3rd by the end of the race just behind 2nd place Kyosho driver Miguel Matias with Mugen racer Fernando Almeida taking the overall win.
