Lloyd Storey Wins Spanish 2WD National for Schumacher


The weekend before last, top UK Schumacher Team driver Lloyd Storey travelled over to Bilbao in Spain to compete in round three of the 2WD Spanish nationals. The track was the same layout as used at the 2009 Euros, but this time running in the opposite direction. The track was high grip and bumpy with some difficult jump sections to test the drivers. The format was eight rounds of controlled practice on Saturday and five rounds of qualifying, followed by three legged A finals on Sunday.The weather forecast leading up to the event was warm and dry, and didn’t disappoint.
After the first round of practice on Saturday, Lloyd was off the pace a bit and ended up eighth overall. After getting used to the difficult track he managed to climb his way up the field by taking the top spot in four out of the eight rounds of practice.
Moving onto qualifying the next day, after five rounds, Lloyd managed to take overall TQ and pole position for the A finals. Lloyd was also joined in the A final by three other fellow Schumacher SV2 runners. Lloyd went on to win all three legs of the seven-minute A finals with his Speed Passion-powered Cougar SV2, followed by Carlos Pineda in second and Enrique FuciÃ’os in third with his SV2.
A perfect weekend for Lloyd at his first Spanish national. Also a great drive by Enrique FuciÃ’os to finish third overall which leaves him in joint first place in the championship with one round to go.
