Default Neil Cragg does the double - 4WD Euro Champion

Neil Cragg took a hard fought win in the 4WD event at the 2008 EFRA European Championships with the new Yokomo B-Max. Neil didn't have everything his own way in qualifying - laying in third position overnight. As mentioned in the oOple race report though, the last two qualifiers can change everything and Neils Yokomo was dialled in the last two qualifiers - taking both rounds to give him overall TQ.



Neil won the first two legs of the A and sat out the third to allow the other drivers to battle for second. Hupo Honigl took the third in an amazing race with Lee Martin right behind all the way - giving him second overall, with Lee Martin third overall.

Full race report on oOple here

Great to see Neil on form again. To win 4wd with a beginner car he'd never driven before, against Europe's best is a great show of skill - well done Congrat's to all the other UK drivers for a dominant performance

Jimmy,

I see that you have met Manolis. He is really quite impressive. I know he will get it together sooner rather than later and we will see a new car worthy of owning. Im impressed by his designs, including my favourite the conversion of a 2wd Losi buggy to a 4wd. Work of art machining.
