Josué Artiles wins Spanish 1/8th scale opener

The opening round of the Spanish 1/8th scale National series was held last weekend at Club Pical Track in Valladolid. The race saw over 70 drivers registered and the sunny weather let the drivers enjoy a nice racing weekend. Following qualifying Sergio Montesinos got the TQ spot followed by Victor González, Oscar Cabezas and current Champion Josué Artiles. Oscar Cabezas had to fight against the clock to set up his brand new Motonica P81, having only received it a few days before the race. In the final Josué Artiles and Óscar Cabezas took the first and second position in the very first laps and the set a pace that no one else could follow. Both drivers were very close but the tire change was faster for Artiles, who won a few seconds to allow him to drive the rest of the race with some advantage. There was an interesting fight for the third place involving three drivers, which finally went the way of former Spanish Champion Victor González with Nacho López and Sergio Montesinos taking 4th and 5th respectively.
