2008 Lithuanian Open Nationals

2008 Lithuanian Open Nationals

The 6th and final round of the Lithuanian National indoor championship was run last Sunday in Vilnius and we received this report. ‘The Touring Stock class was dominated all season by Tomas Riūka driving a HPI PRO4. Out of the 5 rounds counting Tomas won 4, but he said “the battle for title was not as easy as seemed. The competitors were extremely strong and put a lot of pressure on me at every race but as in any form of racing the important thing was to remain consistent and error free”. The second spot in the series was taken by Donatas Katilauskas with a Tamiya TRF415 MSX who was just behind in the overall championship, while 3rd place belonged to HB Cyclone driver Robertas Daskevičius. In 1/12th Mod it was Corally driver Mindaugas Ambrasas that won the championship after dominating the series, winning all rounds. He had this to say “I had a really bad day at 6th round but managed to win it. I also enjoy that the competition is growing stronger and the class is also growing in number. Next season won’t be easy”. The runner up spot in this class was taken by Lithuanian RC Cars Association president Evaldas Urbonas while the 3rd spot went to Latvian racer Janis Klimenkovs, who showed better speed than Urbonas, but missed number of races and therfore lost crucial amount of points.’

Thanks to Mindaugas Ambrasas for the report
