Spanish EFRA GP – Rain interrupts play

Spanish EFRA GP

This weekends EFRA Spanish GP, being held at the ARCA track in Madrid, has been heavily disrupted by rain and low temperatures. The event, which was being treated as a warm up race for this summers European 1/10th 200mm Championships, is being attended by most of the top teams in Europe with some very serious competition entered. Despite the wet weather and 8 degree temperatures today, qualifying was run and it was topped by local driver Victor Pelaez driving a Team Magic G4S, 2nd position going to Serpent racer Rafael Ortiz with Swedish NT1 racer Niklas Hakansson in 3rd, reigning Spanish 1/8th scale champion and Serpent SDD driver Oscar Cabezas ended the day 4th. With weather not expected to be much better tomorrow, and a lot of quick drivers at the bottom of the field, it will be a lottery as to who will make into the main final tomorrow afternoon.
