The 2014 Maltese Offroad 1/8 Buggy Championship concluded in Rinella recently. The final round brought great weather, great track conditions, and great racing. Team XRAY driver, Kyle Spiteri the 2012 champion, took TQ in qualifying and led the final from start to finish. This victory clinched the overall title, and an impressive season with 3 out 4 race wins. In the F2 category, Charles Vassallo kept the XRAY win streak going strong as he too dominated the championship to win the F2 title.
