Elias takes South American Nitro On-road Champs

Brazilian frontrunner Flavio Elias has taken the 2015 South American 1/8th Nitro On-road Championship title in Americana. Already in practise he showed a good performance and clocked fast lap times but in the first two of the five qualifying rounds Flavio had to retire early but with the fastest times in the remaining three rounds he secured himself the pole position and direct qualifying spot for the 45 minute main final. In the early stages of the final Flavio had some difficult laps and he dropped back to 8th position but once he found his groove he was able to climb up the order step by step. In Lap 63 Flavio took over the lead from Sebastian Recio and increased the gap constantly. After 45 minutes he crossed the finishing line in 1st place, some 3 laps in front of Sebastian Recio in 2nd place. The podium was completed by Kazuo Ohara in 3rd position.
