Serpent SDD driver Oscar Cabezas secured a podium finish in the second round of the ultra competitive Spanish 1:8 National Champions over the weekend at the new Valladolid track.

The winner of the opening round of the championship held at the ARCA track in Madrid in March, Cabezas got Round 2 off to the perfect start by taking provisional pole after the opening round of heats.

Unfortunately the reigning Spanish Champion was to hit problems in the following heats and dropped to fourth in the final qualifying order as the track got quicker as the event went on.

Lining up on the second row of the grid for the Main Final, contact at the start left Cabezas in last place but a superb and steady recovery drive allowed the Serpent 960 driver to carve his way through the field to finish third for his second podium finish of the season.
