In a weekend that saw many high-class (warm-up) races it was Team Associated’s Davide Ongaro who would take the win at the EFRA 1/8th Nitro Buggy European Championship warm-up held at the Ongaro Ring in Sacile, Italy. Xray’s Marco Baruffolo also looked like he would be in the mix for the win in the main final, however he was hampered by flame-out issues. Up front and behind Ongaro it was the duo of Mugen’s Robert Batlle and HB Racing’s David Ronnefalk who fought for the runner-up spot with the better end for David who took benefit of a last-minute situation Robert had with a back marker. Ultimately David would come in 2nd a lap down on Davide as Robert had to settle for 3rd, some seven seconds behind on David. TLR’s Renaud Savoya and Kyosho’s Joao Figueiredo would complete the top 5 results.
