Following discussions over the last few months, the organisers of the Euro Nitro Series have confirmed the addition of a new class to the popular on-road race series. The 1:8 Sport class is intended to provide drivers with a cost-effective way to race in the series, utilising all the normal rules from the existing 1:8 Scale class, but with a restriction on ‘stock’ engines – keeping costs down and speeds more manageable!
The class already has popularity in Germany and Switzerland, and some drivers are even already choosing to use the ‘stock’ engines in the ENS. At the most recent ENS event in Aigen, Roy Bakker set TQ and finished second overall in the Masters class, using the standard engine.
As well as this new class being a part of the full 2023 Season, the organisers have chosen to kick things off early and will add the category to the 2022 Finale in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.
