Óscar Cabezas wins Spanish Nationals Rd2

The second round of Spanish 1/8 On-Road Nationals was held at the Elche track near Alicante managed by Club Carsol. It was a hard race, with temperatures over 35ºC, 50ºC on the asphalt and a high relative humidity making it a hard test for engines and fuel. The Elche track is small, but really fast and so lap times are just about 12 seconds. Oscar Cabezas (Motonica / Novarossi / Merlin Fuel) TQ’d and set a new track record. After winning the semi-final, Cabezas kept the first place during almost 30 minutes, closely followed by Sergio Montensinos, who managed to take the first place in the tire change. Oscar again took the first place after a few laps and a few laps later Montesinos had a glow plug failure, and Cabezas, who was driving with no brakes after a crash with Montesinos could set a comfortable and safe pace to finish the race in first position.

Final result:
1. Óscar Cabezas – Motonica / Novarossi / Merlin fuel
2. Sergio Montesinos – Mugen / Novarossi
3. Nacho López – Serpent / Novarossi
4. Fernando Castillo – Mugen / Sirio
5. Isaac Amorós – Motonica / Novarossi
6. David Alonso – Motonica / Novarossi
7. Víctor González – Motonica / Vox
8. Carlos Peracho
9. Juan Miguel Delgado Mugen / Novarossi
10. Aritz Tamayo
