Thilo Tödtmann wins at GFR Le Grand Final Race
The first ever 200mm Nitro GFR Le Grande Finale Race took place this past weekend in Athens, Greece with guest drivers Thilo Tödtmann and Sures Velauthapillai attending the event. This event was the first race on controlled tyres, supplied by Matrix, in Greece and with an ENS style format it was greatly appreciated by all 28 drivers. Germany’s Thilo Tödtmann (Shepherd) took the TQ but in the finals Tödtmann was given a hard time by Greek National Champion Bill Likaris (Shepherd) with the two staying within a couple of metres during the whole race and only swapping positions during the pit stops. Originally Tödtmann had planned a right hand side tyre stop but he did discard the plans during the final was he wasn’t able to pull away. This cause him problems later on as he had to nurse the car over the finish line with hardly any rubber left on the wheels and being only 0.2s in front of Likaris. In 3rd, Lambros Tsiklitiras (BMT) rounded out the podium some four laps down.
