The 2017 European Championships in Eskilstuna, Sweden is well underway with 168 drivers competing for victory (up from 156 last year), special thanks to OS’ Shimazaki-san for collecting the figures and sharing them with us of all drivers taking part in this 5 day event.

In a change from last year, Kyosho are now the most popular chassis with 15.5% [26 cars] present, Mugen aren’t far behind with 24 cars (14.3%), down from almost 25% at last year’s Euros. HB Racing have taken huge leaps and bounds, no doubt helped by home driver David Ronnefalk running the car on home turf, with 23 cars (13.7%). Once again 13 chassis manufacturers are represented here this week.

In the engine stakes, OS have increased their share 23.8% [40] with almost double the next nearest rival, and a little surprisingly, Bullitt share the 2nd place spoils with REDS [22] 13.1%.
