The Clube Radiomodelismo Freixedas hosted the first round of the Portuguese 1/8 Buggy National Championship this past weekend. João Figueiredo (Kyosho) took the overall TQ but in the semi-final, after only 3 laps, he broke his car due to a bad landing. J.Figueiredo managed to win the Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) and he started at the last spot for the final. In the 45-minute final, J.Figueiredo carved his way through the traffic and after some really nice fights with Carlos Durães (Serpent), he was able to get some gap and lead the main until the end. C.Durães came in second while Ricardo Monteiro (Mugen) rounded out the top 3 result.
