Bruno Coelho takes Portuguese Nitro Buggy title

Bruno Coelho takes Portuguese Nitro Buggy title

During last weekend’s final round of the Portuguese 1/8th scale Nitro Buggy national championship in Ortigosa Serpent’s Carlos Duraes (Serpent) took the win, but the race was also on for the overall championship between Bruno Coelho and his Xray team mate Miguel Matias. In the 45 minute final Bruno and Miguel started from 3rd and 4th respectively and in the beginning stages Miguel quickly moved into the lead, constantly opening a gap on Bruno. In order to save tyres and to keep the car in one piece Miguel started to drive very conservatively, eventually falling back to 3rd place only 2 seconds behind 2nd placed Ricardo Monteiro (TLR). Bruno ended 2 laps down in 4th place and this meant Miguel and Bruno would be tie on points with the better end for Bruno as Miguel had a DNF to count that handed Bruno Coelho the 2014 national championship title.
