Coelho wins 1/8th Portuguese Nats Rd3

Coelho wins 1/8th Portuguese Nats Rd3

Another race on the Monsanto track in Lisbon, this time it was the 3rd round of the 1/8th scale National Championships. Sunday’s qualifying begun under wet conditions and while some drivers waited for the conditions to improve, top Mugen racer Bruno Coelho took the opportunity to run in some new Sirio motors for the 1/8th scale Europeans that will take place in Valencia in July. In Portugal the top 14 drivers in qualifying go into the semi final and are joined by 3 drivers from each of the quarter finals, who ever is quickest in the semi’s takes the pole position for the main final and this was Coelho, despite missing the start of the race. The final saw the pole man go straight into the lead where he could stretch out a 3 lap advantage to win over guest Brazilian driver Eduardo Dulac in 2nd, with João Malveiro 3rd.

Thanks to Cesar and Bruno Coelho for the report.
