Round 5 of the Maltese 1/8 Nitro Offroad Buggy and Truggy 2015 Championships was held this past weekend at the MMORRC Rinella track. Though windy, the weather was warm and the track was quite dry and rough. In qualifying, Kyle Spiteri, the current Maltese champion, grabbed TQ in both the buggy and truggy classes with his XRAY XB8 and XT9 respectively.
In the buggy main, Kyle had to settle for 2nd place, as his XRAY teammate and 2013 champ, Dillon Cassar drove an almost faultless race from 2nd on the grid to take the win. With Dillon’s win, this year’s buggy title will go down to the wire and will now be decided in the 6th and final round. Whovever wins between these two XRAY drivers will take the 2015 Buggy title. Chris Zahra (ALSO driving an XRAY) finished up in the 3rd spot.
