Formula racer Keith Atkinson has taken his first international event win by winning the SIlvaplana Eurocup!!
With 120 competitors and all the top names in attendance (Micah Buzianis, Antoine Albeau, Steve Allen etc etc) Keith took victory in the 3 race series with a 5th, and two 2nds.
Light winds plagued the event but when racing got underway on the final day, conditions were good with 10-17 knots.
Keith has been training a lot this year with ex-World Champion Wojtek Brzozowski (Poland) and the dividends are obviously starting to show!
Other notible performances at the event were Steve Allen, who won a race by over 500 meters but a disqualification for an early start saw his chances of overall victory dashed. Italys Andrea Cucchi was also on top form with two 1sts and an 8th putting him just 0.4 points behing keith in 2nd overall.
