In the Nitro Buggy Novarossi Class, Ryan Lutz TQed the first 3 rounds but last one came to the HB/RC Concept driver Jérôme Treignier.

In the Electric Buggy Class, Ryan Lutz was in an other world, winning all 4 quals and all 3 mains.

In A2 Grayek put the charge and finished 2nd while Lutz closed the deal by winning it. A3 would be exciting … a 10 mins battle between Treignier and Grayek to see who will ended 2nd and 3rd.
