2017 SEASON 2 1:8 NITRO BUGGY SPEC ROUND 6 NAXOS

PRO level

Sixth round of 1:8 nitro buggy spec serie was raced at Naxos track. In PRO level French Gaetan Anger was strongest at qualifying, as he runned flawless run with 39.740 average. Swedish offroader Robert Hillman was second fastest with one mistake, he got 40.245 average and was 4 seconds away from Angers pace. Pace between these two top drivers were pretty much same, but that one mistake was crucial for Robert. Third fastest was American Ely Rojas. He was 2 second behind Hillman, and also with one mistake and with 40.578 average.
Ukranian Maryan Beresh was fourth, 0.8 seconds behind Rojas and 7.5 seconds from the winner.
Italian Tommaso Andreuccetti was fifth, almost 11 seconds away from TQ pace.

In the final three drivers separated from the start. Anger was in the lead, Hillman in second and Rojas in third place. It was looking promising for tight battle as they had pretty similar pace. But allready at end of the second lap, Rojas flipped his car just before mainstraight and dropped from the victory battle. Anger was leading and Hillman was pressuring him in really close range. End of the fifth lap Anger made his mistake, and Hillman got the lead. Anger visited at the refuel in 12th lap and had pushed really stable laptimes in second place. Hillman got in trouble in 13th lap by his mistake, but managed to hold his lead, because Anger was so far as he had visited allready at refueling. Hillman went for the refuel in next 14th lap. By this Anger got the lead. Next timingline crossing showed that Anger had been faster in early part of the race and was leading Hillman with 2 seconds margin. They both had few mistakes, but Anger had been faster.
Final 8laps these two showed magnificent driving, running almost consistently under 40s laps.
Something about Hillman`s furios chase behind Anger, tells his fastest laptime in 16th lap, 38.857s. Just great lap!
Well, margins were really tiny between these two, even Hillman got distance almost to one second, Anger held his nerves and crossed the line in first place. Congratulations Gaetan, just remarkable pace and race!!! Hillman had to settle to second place, over two seconds behind Anger.
Rojas who flipped his car at second lap, had to make furios drive to get back to podium fight. He had three mistakes at rest of the final, but his pace was good enough to lift him to third podium place. Great recover from Ely with 40.889 average. Tommaso Andreuccetti was fourth, 7 seconds behind Rojas. Carson Yeung was fifth and had stable race and was really consistent. He wasnt fastest, but with flawless run he managed to get his fifth position.


Anger(white) and Hillman(red) had very same pace. Season 2 Champion Ely Rojas chasing
