Coelho wins as Essex Winter Series returns

The opening round of the popular Essex Winter Series took place over the weekend with newly crowned World Champion Bruno Coelho taking the win.  A series that has attracted some of the biggest names in Electric Touring to the UK in the past, after its forced Covid break it was the Xray team who were the star entries as the indoor carpet series made its return – Martin Hudy and Francesco Martini also making the trip.  Topping all four qualifiers, Coelho would secure the TQ ahead of newly crowned British Champion & Xray team-mate Kyle Branson.  Capricorn’s Alex Thurston complete the Top 3 on the grid ahead of Schumacher’s Andy Murray who won the battle of the car designers as Hudy secured fifth.  In the single leg final, Coelho took an easy win with over 3-seconds of an advantage over Branson with British 1:8 Nitro Champion Thurston completing the podium. In Stock, Xray’s Zak Finlay took the win from the Schumacher of Billy Fletcher.
