Brushless King of Europe

2 European wins in 2 weeks for Cody King

World Champion Cody King traveled to France and Germany over the last two weeks, and picked up a couple electric 1/8 scale titles in the process. In France, Cody attended the Kyosho Masters event in Sucy-en-Brie just outside of Paris. After a rough qualifying and trouble in A1, Cody won A2 to force a final battle in A3. Linus Thern was leading, but with just a few minutes to go, Cody would take the lead and cruise to victory with his Team Orion powered MP9e. In Germany, the turn out was impressive, with near 40 entries for the electric 1/8 buggy class. Qualifying was better for Cody, taking the TQ honors. The electric format here was a semi and a main, so everything came down to the last run of the day. With Sweden’s David Ronnefalk in hot pursuit, Cody would grab the lead and set a blistering pace to take the win. This would give Cody two electric titles in two weeks on European soil.
