Nacho Lopez wins at Spanish 1/8th on-road opener

Nacho Lopez wins at Spanish 1/8th on-road opener

The opening round of the Spanish 1/8th On-road Championships was held at the Automodelismo Ronda club this past weekend. Alberto Fernandez would lead the proceedings during practice but it was Nacho Lopez who came out fastest after the qualifiers, winning three of the five rounds. Ruben Olivares with two round TQs placed himself second after the qualifiers with Victor Gonzalez and Jacobo Guerrero coming in third and fourth. The semifinals had Nacho taking the pole position for the finals from Victor but problems around the 18 minute mark meant a DNF for Gonzalez, denying him a battle for the win and allowing Nacho Lopez to cruise to the victory at round one of the championship, some 2 laps ahead of Ruben Olivares with Jorge Revert completing the podium result another three laps down.
