Graham Alsop wins Xray Challenge UK

CML are reporting on last weekends Xray Challenge that was held at the Clanfield track, the same track that will host next weekends final round of the Truggy Nats. Due to this fact, the race was well attended with drivers trying to gain some advantage and extra track time before this weeks race. Jon Hazelwood took the TQ spot with his Xray XT8 ahead of HoBao racer Graham Alsop right behind in 2nd. In the main final Graham got in front at the start and with Jon running into some radio issues, this gifted Graham an easy cruise to the flag.
