Xray Racing Series Greece Off-road Rd1 – Report
The opening round of the Xray Racing Series Greek Off-road was held at the Fanatix Racing Track in Athens. Cold weather and changing track conditions kept the racers on their toes, looking for the best possible setup. The 2WD Buggy pilots faced a lot of difficulties to find the right setup for the slippery and slower getting track. While the drivers scored 12-lap runs in the qualifiers, in the finals only 9-lap runs would be possible. Ultimately it was Manos Kalantzakis with the win from George Kalantzakis and Stelios Kourkoumelis.
The 4WD Buggies had a bit of an easier life due to their higher traction. Ilias Arkoudaris took the day’s win, however he was closely followed by Chris Katsigiannis and Akis Lignos. 1/8 Nitro Buggy was a test for drivers and track. The results were a completely satisfying as the cars had a lot of traction, no damages at all and great competition as the track is small and tight, make passes a rear challenge. Aris Bornovas won the test race with young talented Sotiris Christodoulou 2nd and Ilias Arkoudaris 3rd with great fights between them in the whole 30-minute final.
