Adrien Bertin brings Team Orion yet another victory at the 2008 Kyosho Masters. From 5th on the grid, Adrien went from 5th to 4th on the start and methodically moved through the field taking advantage of his Team Orion CRF .21 powered Kyosho 777 equipped with the new AKA tires. Within 15 minutes of the 45 minute main it was shaping up to be a three horse race between Daniel Reckward, Julien Lattanzio and Adrien Bertin. For 15 more minutes these three swapped the lead and were never more than 8 seconds apart on the 35 second a lap track. With 10 minutes to go it was down to Reckward and Bertin swapping the lead on pit stops and on the track. With two minutes to go Bertin and Reckward were nose to tail around the track. On the final lap, Adrien Bertinâ€™s Orion power allowed him to make a pass for the lead at the end of the straight and he held on through bumpy conditions to take the win. Along with an amazing performance by his Team Orion CRF Engine, Adrien was able to run his tires in the last round of qualifying and for the entire 45 minutes main event on this multi-surface blue-groove track.
