2008 Events: RedRC Reports on the 2008 Euro's (1845 Reads)
Posted by admin on Tuesday, July 01, 2008 - 02:54 PM

Tuesday Action

The opening day of the 2008 EFRA European 1:8 off Road Buggy Championships has come to a close and as the dust settles here in Crete the drivers had little to report as they eased themselves in to the event over the single 15 minute practice session that made up today’s timetable.

The track was the biggest talking point today with many of the top drivers saying the surface was their main concern. It would appear from drivers who took part in the Warm up race earlier in the year that the track surface has remained largely untouched since that event.
