Kostas Zacharopoulos wins Greek Championship

Kostas Zacharopoulos wins Greek Championship

The Greek 1/10th A Championship took place last weekend at the FRT track in Athens in warm temperatures. Qualifying went the way of Shepherd driver Kostas Sidiropoulos, with Bill Lykaris in 2nd and John Sotiropoulos in 3rd. Following a call for 10 minutes prior to the final for Kostas Zacharopoulos, the race got underway with the front running drivers maintaining their position. Following some collisions in the pitlane for Sidiropoulos and Sotiropoulos and a penalty for the second placed driver, it was Mugen driver Kostas Zacharopoulos who made it to the front at about the 10th minute. A recovering Sidiropoulos was only 5 seconds behind at this stage and closing, the pair coming together later on and Sidiropoulos received a stop and go. After this he encountered brake problems and dropped to 3rd at the end, with Sotiropoulos coming up to take 2nd at the flag. But it was Kostas Zacharopoulos who would take the win by 15 seconds despite a flame out at the 35th minute in the pit lane, and be crowned Greek Champion.
