Elliott Boots wins 2017 Nordic Contest

The 2017 Nordic Contest was held in Eskilstuna, Sweden over the weekend. The event was also the warm-up race for the EFRA 1/8th Nitro Buggy European Championships later this year and so it attracted most of Europe’s top racers to battle for the winning honours in the 1/8th Nitro and E-Buggy classes. In the Nitro category it was Kyosho’s Elliott Boots who walked away with the silverware after the 45-minute main final, leaving the pole position holder, Sweden’s David Ronnefalk (HB Racing) behind by one lap while Mugen’s Robert Batlle completed the top 3 result another lap down in 3rd. Kyosho’s Joao Figueiredo came in 4th, a lap in front of overall top qualifier Davide Ongaro (Team Associated). Oscar Baldo (TLR), Joseph Quagraine (JQRacing), Darren Bloomfield (Agama), Infinity’s Lee Martin, running a HB Racing car, and Tekno RC’s Alex Zanchettin rounded out the top 10 result that saw eight different brands competing in the main final.
