Qualifying saw Mugen racer Dirk Stammler claim the pole position ahead of the Xray driver, and winner of the first 2 rounds, Beat Walti in 2nd, while 3rd spot went to another Xray, that of Traugott Schär. At the start of the final pole man Stammler has some problems and lets Walti into the lead followed by Schär close behind, while on lap 5 Stammler flames out and drops out of contention then the next lap Walti makes a mistake and drops back to fifth.

The system itself is made from black anodised aluminum and comes supplied with the acrylic toe plate.
Serpent has released this latest LCG orange anodised engine mono block for use with 12 size engines in the Serpent 720 which drops the engine by 1.5mm and thus helps lower the cars centre of gravity. Suitable for Picco and Novarossi based motors, this block ensures the engine mounting points are kept aligned reducing stress on the crankcase, which allows the engine to rev freer. The extra material used in the blocks, and with the addition of fins, also allow extra cooling to the crankcase and ensure the centre of gravity is kept as low as possible.
