Mid June might be holiday (vacation for our American friends) time for some, attending Bittydesign’s signature race event at the fabulous Barco track in Italy one might be mistaken for thinking you were on a weekend trip in Tuscany, with good food, drinks flowing and a bit of nitro offroad thrown in for good measure.

Once again NeoBuggy has made the annual pilgrimage to one of our favourite events of the calendar – the EURO Contest. With increased participation and interest year after year, it has long (and deservedly) overshadowed more established events, a combination of great track, location, weather, food, music and atmosphere the key… even enough to lure a few die-hard Kyosho drivers away from the over-celebrated Kyosho Masters on the same weekend.

Further endorsing the EURO Contest’s growing popularity is the arrival of the Spanish Armada – in the form of Robert Batlle & Juan-Carlos ‘Next big thing’ Canas, the pair join long-term attendees like Neo Champ Davide Ongaro, Ricky Berton, Alex Zanchettin, JQ and last year’s Champ Marco Baruffolo.

Despite some crazy downpours before the event, it looks like its going to be a scorching weekend here in Italy

Stay tuned for coverage throughout the weekend.
