Flavio Elias makes pole position and wins the first stage of the 2009 Brazilian Championship with the latest Serpent 966.

Using still the same 966 pre-production car he also raced at the Winternats, Flavio won the race after TQ.

Due to a small clutch issue before the start of the final, we had to ask for a delay to repair it and thus had to start from 10th position. Flavio was able to move the 1st position during the course of the race. At the 32 minute mark of the 45 minute final, Flavio changed tyres and then drive to victory in the 1st heat of the Brasil National Championship.

Flavio also competed for the 1st time in 200mm class with Serpent 720 in the 1/10 scale Nats, but in leading position in the final some problem with the engine prevented a good result. Starting from 4th qualifying position the end-result could have been much better. Next time !

Anyway its was a positive start, the Serpent cars showed the right pace, so 2009 promises to be a great year for us with Serpent in Brazil.

I cant wait for the Serpent 1/8 offroad to arrive……
