    Serpent 733 Dominates in Florida

    Serpent 733 Dominates in Florida

    Serpent reports – “Serpent 733 dominates the second Round of the Florida Series. Last weekend we had the 2nd Round of the Florida Series in the Famous Ft Myers Track. Weather was looking really good especially because a cold front was coming, so finally some cooler temps in sunny Florida. I arrived on Friday afternoon in order to test some engines and drive a little bit since I have not being in this track in 8 months. My car was really good since the beginning, I try some different small adjustments to keep exploring the possibilities of the S-733 and at the end I was really pleased with the performance of the car. Due to some early Saturday Rain, the program was changed a little bit and we had 2 qualifiers on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. I did really well since the first round setting the pace, so I decided for the other 3 qualifiers to keep testing in order to keep learning the car. At the end of the qualifiers I was on TQ with the only 23 laps of the event. In second position was our new young driver Chris Lefebvre and in third was DJ Apolaro. So already an excellent result with 1-2-3 in the grid. We had many more cars in the lower finals so we had actually a good chance to have many more Serpents in the final. Pete “painting” Pepe, actually had to put his S733 to a hard test. He had really bad luck with radio the whole weekend and he qualified in the D Main. He bumped all the way from the D to the A proving his excellent driving skills and the performance and durability of the S733. We actually had some bad luck in the B main, since beside Peter, there were other 3 serpent with really good chances to bump.” Read More… [Source - serpent.com]

    Hepp wins NRW Cup Series with Serpent 966

    Serpent reports – “Tobias Hepp in the 1/8 class and Sebastian Buerge in the 1/10 class are the first champions in the newly established NRW Challenge (NRW = German State North Rhine-Westphalia), a series of three races held in the last three month on the permanent tracks of Dueren, Oberhausen and Bad Breisig. A total of 72 racers, 32 in 1/8 scale and 40 in the 1/10 200mm category entered the three races which all were held at positive atmosphere and with hot racing action. The main characteristic of this new championship has been long races with 30 minutes for semis and 45 minutes for the finals. These unusual long and exhausting racing times have been highly accepted by the drivers and a new experience for most of them. The NRW Challenge will be continued in 2010 with three to five races administered through the whole season.” Read More… [Source - serpent.com]
