John Ermen wins Luxembourg Champs

John Ermen wins 08 Luxembourg Champs

Novarossi have a report from their team driver John Ermen on last weekend’s Luxembourg Championships which had some top level drivers such as Bertin, Cuypers and van Gastel present. Run alongside an electric National and 1/5th scale race, Sunday’s qualifying saw Serpent racer Steven Cuypers take TQ from Ermen, with Ilia van Gastel and Daniel van der Drift rounding out the top 4. The final started with Cuypers going straight into the lead followed by Ermen and van Gastel, but after some laps Ermen had a problem and dropped behind van Gastel who then had some problems of his own and had to retire, promoting the Novarossi driver back up to 2nd. After 15 minutes of racing Cuypers made a mistake which let Ermen through into the lead where he stayed unchallenged for the remainder of the race, ending up 2 laps ahead of Bertin in 2nd, following Cuypers retirement at 27 minutes, with local racer Patrick Bertrallo claiming 3rd.
