The final title of the 2017 season was decided tonight with the European Championship from Belgium's Warneton. 13 drivers attended, with a LFS Bangers debutant in Northern Irish driver 996 Matthew, while it was a welcome return for both fellow Ulsterman 515 Joshua and Englishman 217 Tilson.
This was a well-attended meeting with 4 non-qualified drivers in attendance: the 3 previously mentioned and 228 Splat. As a result, a Last Chance Qualifier was held to determine the order of the 4 non-qualifiers on the grid.
That result was as follows: Joshua, Matthew, Tilson, Splat
Consequently, the grid for the 2017 European Championship was as follows (inside on the left, outside on the right):
27 Cap - - - - - - - - - - - - - 616 Jam (C)
47 Michal - - - - - - - - - - - 66 Colin
669 Mr. Perfect Jr. - - - - - 786 Brett
606 Jon - - - - - - - - - - - - 870 Looney
474 Miniman - - - - - - - - - 515 Joshua
996 Matthew - - - - - - - - - 217 Tilson
228 Splat - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
One driver got ahead early on and despite a fantastic battle with another racer in particular, held on for his first graded title...
2017 EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP:
Other finishers: Looney, Matthew, Jam, Colin, Mr. Perfect Jr., Cap, Splat
After his success in the Banger World Series Championship race, Czech driver Michal followed up in some style by snatching the European title off his PiranMoto teammate Jam. #47 got ahead early, and despite competition from West Country Wreckers teammates Looney and Brett (the latter rolling out of contention in a major final for the second time in a row) it was Team Bandicoot's Miniman who kept with Michal all the way but crucially could never get past him, and with #616 and Mr. Perfect Jr. both going on the attack to get their man to win, it was a margin of 0.60 SECONDS that decided the destiny of the red and yellow chequered roof. Michal showed his ability at the end of last year but with a year's experience, has finally claimed some big honours. #474 had to settle for second again while Joshua demonstrated his skill by claiming his first LFS Bangers major podium place in third.
