I send a short report and some photos about the Spanish Nats 1/8 & 1/10 Nitro that took place last weekend at Asoger track, Madrid.
General: Nice track, technical, but with grip changes because hot (lot of hot 35-37º during the weekend) and track additivated.
1/10: 22 pilots at the end. Pole position for Victor Pelaez (Capricorn), with Juan Hidalgo (Serpent) in direct second place for Main Final promoting from superpole win.
Several Serpent drivers Raul Sancho, Jorge Revert, David Cuesta… out of Main Final because several problems in the semi finals.
In the Main Final, clean starting with Victor Pelaez in first position, Juan Hidalgo in second and Sergi Franch and Jhony Pastor fighting for 3rd position.
Juan Hidalgo pass Victor Pelaez in an amazing maneuver and leading the race from this moment to the end.
Victor Pelaez suffered them an engine problem and Juan Hidalgo (Serpent) win the race with Sergi Franch (Mugen) in second position and Jhony Pastor (Mugen) in 3rd.
Amazing driving from Serpent driver Juan Hidalgo this weekend, wining the race and setting a new track record at Asoger track with a time of 19,511 secs.
1/8: 52 pilots in this category (finally 44 present). Pole position for Carlos Peracho with Guillermo Perez securing direct pass to Main Final from Superpole win.
In semi finals we have with Serpent Nacho Lopez with an engine problem out of Main Final (Nacho suffered all the weekend not clean qualifiyings and then a problem in his semi when he was in Main Final positions). Sergio Rivas Pikias promoting to Main Final and also Alvaro Fernandez out of Main Final because a problem in the straight when he was in 3rd position at the end of the Semi. So, only one Serpent in Main Final with Sergio Rivas taking a 7 final position an the end of the race.
Alvaro Fernandez repared his car from Semi and was able to participate and win the B-Final in an amazing battle with Manuel Cendan last year B-Champion. Good result for 13 years old driver.
The main final was dominated by Carlos Peracho from begining to end with 2 tyre change strategy. Fastest driver on track. Second position during much time of the race for Guillermo Perez but out of podium because a plug problem at the end.
Final victory for Carlos Peracho, with Alberto Alonso second and Sergio Montesinos in 3rd position.
