by Byte Class Association on 15 Mar 2010
CII NA Championship and NA YOG Qualifier - Although the top ten places look fairly well established, Marti Llena ESP moved into third place on the strength of two first place finishes in the second and last races of the day. However, he is only two points up on Kevin Otterdijk AHO, winner of the day's first race but they are both well clear of Rahiem Steede BER in fifth place.
