Report by Zak Finlay
The EWS International race was held this past weekend in Rayleigh, UK.
The XRAY factory team were in attendance and were looking to secure some positive results.

In the Stock 17.5 class, current stock world champion Alexandre Duchet made the trip over from France and was the fastest in qualifying. He was able to secure the TQ spot ahead of XRAY teammate Zak Finlay. The pair were joined in the A-Main by the XRAY's of Adam Izsay, Tony Broad and Ricky Copsey, making it half of the A-Main using the XRAY X4'23.
After the finals, Alexandre was able to take the win, followed by Zak, with Adam finishing in 3rd position.
