Serpent wins Northwest regionals 1/8 Off & On Road
Last weekend, several regional championships take place at Galicia in the Northwest of Spain.
In 1/8 Off Road Nitro, Cristian Villar takes TQ & Win with Serpent SRX8 EVO and setting the fastest lap at A Estrada track. Jaime Vanaclocha also with SRX8 takes the second place of the podium. Difficult race at a rough track. Other Serpent drivers disputed A-Main with less luck… Awesome support by BRP family in the pits (Andreia, Auro, Luis…). Seems difficult to do all best! Congratulations!
Also, 1/8 On road Nitro and F1 & TC electric round 1 take place at the same time at Orense track. Always difficult for all drivers as at this track no little mistake is allowed!
Young Serpent driver Alvaro Fernandez takes the final win in 1/8 On Road Nitro fighting all the race with Reigning Spanish Champion Iñaki Otero Taboada with both drivers in a no tyre-change strategy for the 30 min A-Main. Iñaki dominates the final from pole position in the begining, with Alvaro always 2-3 seconds behind him. A little mistake entering the pits for Alvaro allowed Iñaki to take an advantage of 10 seconds but at the end on the final Alvaro was recovering the distance and with Iñaki suffering with tyres, Alvaro takes the 1st position with 1 min to the end and taking the win and setting the fastest lap of the final. Bad luck to Manuel Cendan, also with Serpent 988 who was able to pass Alvaro at the starting of the final but was long in the second corner and suffered a crash and can´t continue. Congratulations to all!
Also electric categories take place. In TC Fran Miño takes the win with Andres Gonzalez and David Regueiro completing the podium.
In F1 again Fran Miño takes the win with two Sepent SF3 completing the podium with Andres Gonzalez and Francisco Bello.
Congratulations to everybody and all Serpent Team! See you at nice Vigo track for the 2nd round!
