Race report from XRAY:

Race Report by Bruno Coelho

Last weekend held the European Championship 1/8 Off Road 2018 in Freixedas, Portugal. With a great weather during the all weekend and a perfect track it was for sure an unforgettable weekend. 

Coming all over from Canada the Tessman´s family came to help XRAY team and me as main focus. The race started very well with our car working good from the very beginning, we did small changes on our setup to make the car faster and everything worked as we expected finishing the qualifies in the 3rd position. We run HotRace tires the all weekend but for the final we decided to change to Proline for a better durability as the track was very abrasive. Being the only one on the final making "long time without refueling" due to our FX Engine performance I was able to Win this race with a 10 seconds gap to our rival making less one refueling than all!

I want to say thank you to all XRAY team present, all Portuguese people over there supporting me the whole weekend and a big big thanks to Tessman´s family for the perfect mechanic support! 

See you in South Africa for one more race!
