MPBA Members conquer Europe!
It was a great weekend for several MPBA members at the iMBRA League multi race in Oudenaarde, Belgium.
Brits dominated the 3.5cc class with the top 2 qualifiers and a 1-2-3 finish in the final. Congratulations to 2014 World Champion Zack Humphries (1st) (Prestwich Ikarus 2.3), Andrew Aykroyd (2nd) (Prestwich Ikarus 2.3) and Mark Wraight (3rd) (Modell Marin Falcon)
In 7.5cc, 2014 World Champion Martin Fields of LM Racing took the win with his Prestwich Pegasus Evo after an incredible race against Erich Costa (France). Erich was breathing down Martins neck the whole 30 minutes, but Martin kept his cool to take a well earned win.
In 15cc, young gun Zack Humphries was determined to carry his form through to the bigger class, but a spectacular 1st corner crash effectively ended his chances although he was able to get back on the water. Fellow Brits Phill Fields and Sam Lincoln could not match the pace of eventual winner Erich Costa (France).
In 27cc, Ian Folkson had a tough task to beat current iMBRA 27cc World Champion Erich Costa (france) and super quick Steven Kindt (Belgium) and finished a creditable 3rd maintaining his great consistency at Internationals.
Our 2 Juniors dominated the 3.5cc class with a 1-3 finish, Thomas taking the win in his very first International!
The Belgian organisers did a top job on what is traditionally one of the best internationals and the weather was fantastic all weekend, making the event hugely enjoyable for both competitors and spectators alike.
