Óscar Cabezas claims National title with Rd4 win

Óscar Cabezas claims National title with Rd4 win

Last weekend saw the 4th and final round of the Spanish 1:8th scale On Road Championships run at the Club Arca in Madrid and it was Merlin Team driver Oscar Cabezas that took the victory, TQ and overall Championship. Driving his Motonica, Óscar dominated the race from the beginning, being the only driver able to set 18 laps and moreover he won the 4 qualifying heats. However the Main final, was not as easy as the final result shows. Óscar had a flame out early on that made him change his strategy and he even run out of fuel in the middle of the final. Nevertheless his pace was so strong and consistent that he could keep the 1st position until the the final flag. With this Victory, Óscar claims the National title with 2 victories and 2 second places. Josué Artiles finished on 2nd in both the last race and the overall championship. In fact, both Oscar and Josue finished the season with the same 1,893 points, however Oscar’s worst classification was a 2nd while Artiles worst was a 3rd. This gives an idea about the how tight the fight was between both drivers in recent years.
