Caribbean Winter Cup report

We received a report from the Caribbean Winter Cup that took place at the Barceloneta RC Speedway in Puerto Rico, last weekend. Mugen driver Mike Swauger and Paolo Montanti from Serpent made their way to Puerto Rico for this race and proceeded to take the top qualifying spots, with Paolo TQ in the Sedan class and Mike TQ in 1/8th scale. Both drivers also established a new track records in their respective classes. In the 1/10th A main, Paolo took the win followed by Kyosho team mates Jose Colón and Pedro Alvarado. Prior to the beginning of the Outlaw and 1/8th mains it started to rain, so the races were stopped and the results were taking from the final starting order. This gave the TQ-win in 1/8th scale to Mike Swauger, in front of Paolo Monganti in 2nd and local Mugen driver Andy Báez in 3rd. In the outlaw class, Edgar Tirado who took the win, followed by Javier Malavé and Carlos Fuentes.
