Team Serpent lead driver Michael Salven declared himself happy with the performance of the 720 at the opening day of the 2007 EFRA 1:10 200mm European Championships which are underway in Madrid, Spain.
Monday saw drivers each do 3 X 10-minute free practice sessions with the common complaint of the day being the grip however this did improve throughout the day with the third run allowing drivers to get there first real feel for the track.
Switching to Salven’s setting for his final run of the day Mark Green, twice a runner up at 1:10 Euros, said the team had made a great start to the championships and now they could focus on fine tuning the 720 with a number of options to try.
Local star and SDD driver Oscar Cabezas was also pleased with his day despite having his exhaust flattened by another competitor during his second run. SDD team-mate Kyle Branson too was happy with his opening day.
Good organisation by the ACRA Club saw Day 1 run like clockwork. Weather condition were great too with temperatures hitting the mid to high 30s. Conditions which are set to continue throughout the week.
