Last weekend saw the first 1/8 scale Classic 4 hour endurance race take place on the famous Howald track in Luxembourg host of the 2004 European 1/8th scale Championships. Ten teams from France, Luxembourg and Germany where present with a variety of cars such as the Contact 300 , BRX4 , MM2 , Mantua as well as the prototype Sling chassis. After an intense race it was Team Contact, racing the Contact 300, that emerged victorious with 571 laps, with 2nd place going to team Wau Wau with the BRX4, the fastest chassis on track but 33 laps down on the winners. The final spot on the podium went to the Les Uns Connus team, racing the Monaco model chassis only 4 laps behind 2nd position. The newest DXF chassis, that we showed you 2 weeks ago, missed the event, its designers too busy getting the car ready for launch in early 2008 to race it.
Thanks to race organiser Christophe Deliege for the report.
