Phil Sleigh wins 2010 UK Micro X

Phil Sleigh wins 2010 UK Micro X

The first signs of a promising season ahead were seen last weekend when new Castle Creations signing Mark Stiles took 2nd place at the 2010 UK Micro X event. Mark was driving a long wheelbase LRP shark ST equipped with a Castle Creations Micro Pro speed controller and CM20 8000kV motor. Mark is the reigning British champion in the micro off road class, so was among the favorites coming into the event. On the day he lost out to 1/10th electric off road specialist Phil Sleigh, who was driving a pre-production version of Carisma’s new car. The wider track of Phil’s car compared to his competitors rides meant that he had a clear stability advantage over his rivals, and despite Mark managing to TQ the second round of qualifying, Phil was never really troubled on route to taking overall TQ and the A final victory. Mark had a close battle with fellow LRP Shark runner Andy Jones and eventually came out on top in what was a closely fought contest.

Thanks to Mark Stiles for the update.
