Lee Martin takes 2WD European Championship title

The 2017 EFRA 1/10th Off-road European Championships are held in Pinerolo, Italy this week. After completely dry qualifying for the 2WD Championship, showers before the finals presented a new conundrum for all the drivers. England’s Lee Martin started from pole with Riccardo Berton (Kyosho) a surprise 2nd for Italy. Leg 1 saw a textbook run from Lee winning with some ease, however in the 2nd leg the changing surface conditions and a lack of information about the progress of the race nearly caught out the Yokomo driver and he slowed one lap too early almost handing victory to Michal Orlowski, but a good piece of defensive driving saw Lee over the line to claim his 6th European championship The final leg saw a win for Schumacher and Poland’s Orlowski that enabled him to take the runner up spot in the championship. With soild runs, TLR’s Reno Savoya would round out the podium result.

1. Lee Martin – United Kingdom
