Sotiropoulos takes Rd1 in Greece

Sotiropoulos takes Rd1 in Greece

Last weekend saw the opening round of the Greek 1/8th scale National Championships take place at the Arena racing track in Athens. No practice was done on Saturday due to heavy rain so the drivers had to go directly into the race on Sunday. Following a small delay in the morning to allow the track to dry, there were 4 rounds of qualifying and it was Sotiropoulos that took the TQ spot for Serpent ahead of team mate Farmakis in 2nd and Kyosho driver Totomis in 3rd. In the race the battle was between Sotiropoulos and Totomis until the rain came again to the track and changed everything. Fortunately it was just for a minute and grip was built again after a short while. Sotiropoulos held on for the win with Tortomis close to a lap behind in 2nd, with Arkoumanis Giannis taking 3rd.
