This past Sunday the first round of the Belgian 1/8th and 1/10th Nitro On-road Championship was held at the track of Bierset. The qualifiers and finals were run in difficult track conditions due to rain in the morning and early afternoon. In the 1/8th class Robin D’Hondt took the pole with his new BMT. He confirmed his good performance in the dry final where he found himself in last position at first, following a crash in the first corner. With smooth but fast driving Robin moved his way up into the lead again before the first pit stop and he then maintained a high pace to take the win. Local young talent Augustin Mejor , in his first year in the 1/8th class, demonstrated his skills and ended the main final in 2nd position. Hugues Yerna completed the podium in 3rd.
Other two Italian national titles are added to the palmares of Bmt!
