Carles Echarri wins Spanish 1/8th EP On-road Cup

The first ever Spanish 1/8th Electric On-road Cup was held at the Almussafes in Valencia this past weekend. Nine drivers signed in for the class that was run alongside the National Nitro Championship. After five rounds of qualifying Carles Echarri took the TQ, closely followed by Marc Moix, Ramón Guasch, Miguel Puchal and Carlos Gimenez. As the drivers used different battery and motor configurations with some running on 6S while others opted to use 4S LiPo batteries the drivers decided to go for four minute finals but four instead of only three, after it became clear that some drivers struggled to complete a five minute run in qualifying. During Sunday’s finals Carles Echarri took wins in all four legs to grab the overall victory from Marc Moix and Ramon Guasch. Performance-wise the electric and nitro powered cars were only separated by 0.1s in the fastest laps with the cars being capable of speeds of up to 107km/h on the long Almussafes straight.

Final result:
1. Carles Echarri
2. Marc Moix
3. Ramón Guasch
4. Miguel Puchal
5. Francisco Cervera
6. Esteban Aranda
7. Carlos Gimenez
8. Toni Bernat
9. David Herrera
