XRAY XB808 Wins At Ortigosa – Leiria track

Race report by Ricardo Monteiro
After the second race was canceled in Guarda (due to bad weather), the drivers were anxious for a good battle on the track. Saturday afternoon we began our practice with fine weather and good track conditions. Sunday morning we woke up at 7 AM to terrible weather. We began racing the first qualifying round in the hard rain, causing difficulties due to electrical problems. Therefore we had to achieve the best results possible in the next two qualifying rounds to eliminate the first one. The results in the second and third qualifying rounds were 2nd and 4th, with the final position after
qualifying being 4th place overall. TQ was taken by XRAY XB808 driver Nuno Lataes.

Despite engine problems that never stopped during the entire main final, I had to work very hard to get to the top places with smooth, consistent driving. After that, the rain finally stopped and the track began drying and I found the proper conditions to take the car to 1st place. At the end of the race the car was very heavy with mud, but still handled nicely.

Final results:

1. RICARDO MONTEIRO XRAY XB808
2. MIGUEL PIRES
3. NUNO LATAES XRAY XB808 – TQ
4. HÉLIO LOPES
5. RICARDO MARTINS
6. PAULO MARQUES
7. MIGUEL ANGELO
8. RENATO FREITAS
9. PEDRO FIGUEIREDO – XB8EC
10. RICARDO FERREIRA – XB8EC
