Vasilis Lykaris wins at Greek 200mm opener

The opening round of the Greek 1/10th scale nitro championship was held at the Fanatix Racing Track in Athens. After five rounds of qualifying, Vasilis Lykaris managed to grab the pole position for the main final but he would crash in the warm-up laps and asked for some extra time which dropped him back to 13th position on the starting grid. On the opening lap Lykaris jumped into 4th position behind Papachristos, followed by Lekkas (5th), Karabelas (6th) and Kostas Sidiropoulos on the 7th spot. Some ten minutes before the finish of the race Sidiropoulos faced an engine failure and lost any chance for a good result. Up front Karabelas did a great race and though he ran two finals, his car still was running perfectly till the end of the A-main, finishing 2nd while Vasilis Lykaris brought his car home on the top of the podium, having a perfect start for the season after 3 consecutive championships.
