The 2008 nitro season got underway in Cyprus over the weekend and it was business as usual for Team Serpent as Nicholas Zachariades dominated the event.
The regining Cyprus 1:10 Nitro Challenge Champion was driving his new 720 08 and put in a superb heat to TQ for the event. Starting from the number one spot on the grid Zachariades cruised home to take the win. Â In early stages it looked like it was going to be a 1-2 for Serpent as the newest member to the team Andreas Charalambous held second but an unfortunate incident forced him to retire. Marios Charalambous drove a solid race to finish sixth with his 720.
The team also secure a podium finish in the B-final with Athos Michaelas taking 2nd place while team-mate Nicos Mavrou took 4th with his Mega ZX powered 720.
Other Serpent drivers who took part in the season opener were Joseph Spyrides, Aris Papasavvas and Loucas Loppas.
