Carlos Durães wins season opener at Trofa

Carlos Durães wins season opener at Trofa

The first official 1/8 Off-Road race of the year in Portugal took place last weekend at the Trofa track. Seen as a warm up to the Nationals it was Ricardo Monteiro that took the TQ spot as he won all 3 qualifiers with his RB powered Losi 8ight. The opening 7 minutes of the main final saw a nice battle between Monteiro and Xray driver Carlos Durães with new Losi signing Miguel Matias in third, after starting in 11th due to some electrical troubles during the warm lap. Monteiro had issues during his first refueling which dropped him back and allowed Durães up the 1st where he stayed until the end. Miguel Matias also benefitted from Monteiro’s problems and moved up to 2nd where he finished, ahead of Nuno Casal Ribeiro, a good result for this local Crono driver.
