The opening round of the Irish EP National Championships took over the weekend in Bangor, Northern Ireland, where Serpent driver Michael Byrne took a convincing victory in the 1:12 class. A leading driver in 1:8 Onroad Nitro racing in Ireland, Michael only took up electric racing late last year as a way to practice during the wet winter months but over the weekend was the class of the field.

Taking TQ honours he went on to dominate both finals with his S120, which was running on Xceed tyres, from regular 1:12 front runner Jim Heal's CRC. Following his win Michael, who is expecting delivery next week of a new Serpent 966 for his 2010 1:8 Onroad campaign, says he now plans to contest the full EP National Championship.
