Sidiropoulos wins Greek 1/10 Nats Rd1

Sidiropoulos wins Greek 200mm Nats Rd1

The opening round of the Greek National Championship for 1:10 200mm took place over the weekend at the FRT circuit. Saturday practice saw the Serpent pairing of John Sotiropoulos and Kostas Sidiropoulos set the pace, which they would carry through to Sunday as they secured the top two placings in qualifying with Sotiropoulos taking the TQ. In the final Sotiropoulos capitalised on his pole starting position, opening up an early lead over the chasing pack but unfortunately 18 minutes into the race he destroyed both 2 speed gears, handing the lead to team-mate Sidiropoulos. After almost 2 minutes in the pits, Sotiropoulos rejoined the race 5 laps in arrears of his team-mate. Determined to take a podium finish he put in a superb recovery drive setting the fastest lap of the day on his way to an excellent third place finish, just behind Mugen racer Lymnios in 2nd, while up front Sidiropoulos cruised home to take his first ever National championship race win.
