This weekend took place the 2nd round of the PT Nats. It was held at Vilela track and the weather was good with the sun shinning over the weekend. I finished 2nd in Nitro and Eco. Regarding Eco i finished 2nd after the qualifications as well as overall results with a 3rd place at A1 and a 2nd at A3. It was my first time with SRX8-e and i’m still learning the car but i could feel that it has a really good potential, much more steering than our previous car which i like. My electronic was not good and only at A3 it was with good power. Regarding Nitro i was able to get the Tq in the first round of qualify but on the second and third i’ve m
This weekend me and my dad went to Rc Pro Racing for the Roar Region 2 series. I’m not running the series due to other races planned. I ran the brandnew Cobra SRX8E Ebuggy, Cobra SRX8 Nitro Buggy, & Cobra TE Nitro Truggy. Practice went great as all my cars were dialed! The tire choice that I ran was AKA Soft “Gridpacts” for all three classes!
Qualifying went great too as I TQ’ed Nitro Truggy & Buggy and qualified 5th in Ebuggy. I had a little trouble in qualifying in Ebuggy, but was able to come back in the mains and win A1 & A2! I all can say about the new Ebuggy, is that it is freaking amazing!
In Nitro Buggy I lead from beginning to end to take the win! In Nitro Truggy, I lead the whole race until the last 5 minutes and had self causing problem that wouldn’t allow me to finish the race. Overall the weekend went great and can’t wait for S&B next weekend!
Lastly, big thanks to my parents and all my sponsors for there continued support!
First round of the Portuguese Nationals is done and what a weekend !! I was able to finish 1st in e-buggy with the Cobra 811-e and 2nd in nitro-buggy with my Cobra SRX8.
In e-buggy i won the A1 and A2 which gave me the overall win. My car was really good and fast.
In GP buggy after qualifications i was 3rd and wasn’t comfortable with my setup yet. We made a couple of changes for the semi and actually it worked perfectly as my car was amazing and super fast lapping everyone at semis which means i would start on pole for the a-main.
The A-main was an epic race to don’t forget ! I had a clean start and was leading the race in front of João Figueiredo just behind me. He made a small mistake which gave me more confortable leading until almost the last two fuel stops. Then i’ve made some mistakes and then we were battling for the lead always togheter switching positions until the last couple of laps where i’ve made mistakes and he could get the win with some room to breathe…
Congrats to him for the win and for the amazing a-main we had together. I’m very happy as well as my teammate Cristian Villar with SRX8 from Spain was able to make the A-main. So we had two cars in the a-main
Overall it was a good weekend to start the PT Nats. My package was very good and i’m happy as we improved since the qualifications until the a-main. As allways thanks to all the people who help me on and off the track and of course my sponsors for making it possible.
Next up is the Neo race in Uk
