Miguel Matias doubles at Portuguese off-road nats Rd1

Miguel Matias doubles at Portuguese off-nats Rd1

Last weekend the first ever Portuguese 1/10 4WD and 2WD off-road nationals took place at the ACRP indoor track. The meeting saw 19 entries in 2WD and 27 in the 4WD class. The carpet track had a fast and flowing layout, with a few tight corners, well designed jumps and plenty of entertainment. In 2WD Buggy Miguel Matias totally dominated qualifying, TQ’ing the first 3 rounds. The 2WD finals then were quite eventful and Miguel Matias faced a good challenge from Ricardo Monteiro in the first final, but in the end he won by 2 seconds over Ricardo. In the second leg Matias took the lead again and checked out, handing him an unchallenged win and the overall victory.

2WD Buggy final result:
1. Miguel Matias
2. Ricardo Monteiro
3. Nuno Duraes
4. Joao Figueiredo
5. Nuno Roque
6. Arnaldo Guedes
7. Carlos Candido
8. Nuno Casal Ribeiro

4WD qualifying was a totally different game, but Miguel also TQ’ed 3 rounds with a convincing pace, but this time Bruno Coelho was there to challenge him as he took one qualifier, placing himself on the 2nd spot of the A main grid, just behind Miguel. In the finals, Miguel Matias once again took the win in the first 2 legs and was declared overall winner. Bruno Coelho although showed a really good form but transponder issues let him drop to 5th at the end.
