We are proud that Top level 1/8 scale driver Nak Sung Choi joins the already strong Serpent 977 team. Choi races in South Korea and will also attend the Wc in Japan, later this year.
His great experience in 1/8 scale will benefit all Serpent Team, and especially the Korean drivers.
Below a brief interview with Choi.
Young talent David Hassel from Sweden had a pretty good EC in Italy. The track was really tough one to learn with many different surfaces, jumps and turns.
In the 2nd qualifier Hassel even took P3 overall, after Q3 in 8th and after Q4 still in 13th.
After a week of racing in Gubio ITALY 14 year old Alex Thurston was crowned EFRA 2013 Junior Champion. Alex is driving a Serpent 747 powered by IDM engine he would like to thank IDM, SERPENT-UK and his pit man (Dad) for there help and support.
Top UK driver was Joe Kerry, he was 5th in qualify with his OS powered 747, but had issues in his semi final and just missed the main final. Joe would like to thank OS Engines, SERPENT-UK and his pit man (dad) for all there support.
Dominic Greiner from Germany racing the Serpent 747, claimed the 2nd place at the EC-B in Gubbio, Italy this weekend, only 3 seconds clear of the winner.
Greiner also took 2nd spot in qualifying, after showing all week he was fastest.
In the final his engine was very fast too, but engine was going lean and rich and needed reset with each fuel-stop, this and having to make 2 fuelstops more stopped chances for victory, which for sure was within reach !
2nd Serpent 747 in the final Musolino took 8th place in the end.
Thanks to Dominic and Sabrina for the great efforts and results and same...
