Dario Balestri wins European Championships

For those of you who have been following our extensive race coverage from the 2007 1/10th scale 200mm European Championships you will already know that Dario Balestri has been crowned the 2007 European Champion. Winning his second straight Championships in Madrid, Spain, the Italian endured a tough race day having qualified down in the 1/4 finals, he won that final for a place in the semi, which he also won, to line up 5th for the 45 minute A-Final. After some great driving and having some luck come his way, the Team Magic driver crossed the line in 1st place to claim the 2007 crown. A fast charging Jilles Groskamp from Holland was 2nd for Xray while young Italian European ‘B’ Champion Alessio Mazzeo was 3rd for Serpent.

Our trackside reporter Oisin O’Briain will have a full report online tonight.
