He is only racing two and a half years but 15-year-old Max Claes has taken his first National title winning the 1/10 200mm T2 Belgian Championship at the final round at the Charleroi track over the weekend. Racing in very poor weather conditions, Max took TQ honours for the championship finale with his Serpent 720. Starting from the No.1 spot on the grid a wrong tyre choice meant the up and coming young talent was unable to challenge for his third win of the season but finishing fifth was enough for him to claim his first ever National first title from Renaud Gysemberghs. Over the championship Max claimed two victories and four podium placings and the new champion is already looking forward for to new challenges next year. In true champion style Max thanked his dad Alain and Jan de Pooter from RC Car Colours for their support during his successful campaign.
