REPORT by Hugo Miguel:
“Portuguese EFRA GRAND PRIX 1/10 electric TC (20th-22nd of April 2012)”
Last weekend on the 22nd of April, only 8 drivers attended the EFRA 1/10th Eletric Touring Car Racing, hosted in Portugal at Mini Autodromo de Torres Novas.Friday and Saturday morning were open for free practice, in the afternoon there was one timed practice round and two qualifying rounds.The qualifying rounds were mainly disputed by 4 drivers, Hugo Miguel driving a Serpent S411, Bruno Coelho, Joao Martinho and Bernardo Cosme, both with Yokomo.After the five rounds Bruno Coelho took the Pole, followed by Joao Martinho and Hugo Miguel.
For the finals the challenge was set, but Bruno Coelho showed he was there to win the game and took the first and second round, making him the fair Winner.Joao Martinho made a clean race and took a well deserved 2nd place.Hugo Miguel took a nice 3rd after struggling with lack of traction on the first round, in the second round an unusual technical problem forced him to stop on the first lap and only in the 3rd round, managed to put his Serpent flying on rails and consequently won the last round!Congratulations to the organisation and all the racers present on this meeting and to my sponsor RRF Modelismo/Serpent Portugal.
