2015 Race 4 @ Enghien

This year again, the Buggy Racing Tournai Club organizes a race of the Belgian SCT Cup in the middle of Enghien’s RC show. With a visitor attendance of almost 5000 people, national TV coverage and great weather, this event is a great opportunity to show and share our hobby. Facilities offered by the club have never been better than this year, and the purpose-built grass track is the biggest ever built there. Layout is pretty technical and appreciated by all drivers.
