Nuno Casal Ribeiro takes Rd3 in Portugal

Casal Ribeiro takes Rd3 in Portugal

The third round of the Portuguese 1/8th off road Nationals took place last weekend at the Torres Vedras track, near Lisbon. Kyosho driver Miguel Mattias took the top spot for the main final but hit problems in the race itself dropping him down to 8th, which left Rd2 TQ man Nuno Casal Ribiero to take the lead in a tight 3 way battle for the top spot. Ribiero, racing for Crono, managed to keep his cool to that the event win by 3 seconds ahead of Rd2 winner Fernando Almeida, who has switched from Mugen to Xray since Rd2, while 3rd position went to a Mugen racer Tiago Almeida.
