(2007.12.12) X1X-CR's win at the Trofa Cup in Portugal!
Trofa Cup, the last race of the year in Portugal, was held last weekend. There were total 46 entries, and 9 of the drivers were from Spain. Top Portuguese drivers also attended the race, only Miguel Matias was missing.
Hong Nor team driver Rodrigo Luis driving X1X-CR managed to get TQ in all the 3 qualifying sessions. The good lap times were arround 28 seconds but according to Luis: "Hong Nor X1X-CR was very fast and it allowed me to run in 27second lap times. The car was just amazing all Sunday!"
"In the main final, I started with the leading position and managed to pull away from the others, but I crashed in a jump, the marshall didn´t see my car, I loose almost one lap and I dropped to 6th place, but in the first pit stop for refueling when I had recovered to 3rd, my engine flammed out and I lost more than one lap. I then restarted in 7th place and I managed to recover, finishing in 3rd place after 30 minutes of the main final!"
Luis believes that he can definitely win the first place with his X1X-CR next time!
X1 wins the South Australian State Title!
Once again Hong Nor team driver Martin Wolhuter produces a brilliant win at the South Australia Championships. Not only did Martin win he also got the TQ. Martin Driving the Australian Team version X1CR also got TQ at the Queensland Titles and the ACT Titles. With so much emphasis being placed on a new car coming drivers seem to forget that the X1 is still one of the best handling cars out there today. There is an old adage out there that says (if it aint broke dont try to fix it.) The Hong Nor X1CR and CRT will always be a dominant force in the world arena with many drivers having experienced some of the newer cheaper end cars on the market and finding them lacking for whatever reason and returning to the X1. The Australian Team X1 includes most of the great options Hong Nor have to offer including the fantastically smooth 16mm shocks coupled with the offset brake cams on the alloy center diff mount.
