Default Renaud Savoya is 2008 European Champion

This week saw the European 1/8th scale buggy Championships run in Crete and it was French Mugen racer Renaud Savoya who capped off a dominant performance by taking the European title ahead of former Champion Robert Batlle. The Spanish driver had taken the lead early in the race and pulled out a considerable lead, but a broken rear arm with 15 minutes to go meant that Savoya could come back in the late part of the race, and take the lead from the crippled Hobao driver with just over 10 minutes to go, and never looked back. Batlle ended the race in 2nd, only a few seconds behind, while new HongNor signing Richi Gomez from Spain rounded out the top 3.
