Miranda & Felix win Rd4 in Portugal

Miranda & Felix win Rd4 in Portugal

Last weekend the 4th race of the Portuguese On-road Nationals for 1/8 and 1/10 took place at the Vila Real track at the north of Portugal, one of the most fantastic on-road permanent circuits. The track has a huge layout and the best conditions to archive the best on-road races possible so the whole Xray team worked since Saturday practice to get the best possible out of their cars, fortunately the expected rain didn’t come so we raced in dry conditions. This time Xray had a new member Mario Miranda who drove the NT1 2013 Spec for first time and for him it was a new and positive experience for sure.

With 18 drivers in the 1/8 scale and 12 in the 1/10 scale the qualification started on Sunday morning. In both classes Bruno Coelho finished with TQ with Mario Miranda in 2nd also in both classes. At the start of the finals in the 1/10 category, Bruno unfortunately experienced engine failure. They replaced the engine and Bruno was able to get back on track in 7th place. He pushed really hard and after and excellent run, one tire change and no mistake he was able to finish third just behind another Xray driver Rogerio Araujo in second and first time Xray driver Mario Miranda in first place.

In 1/8 category Bruno made some mistakes and fell back a few places and had to work his way back to the front finishing second very close behind the winner Jose Felix.
