Every year, those crazy guys in Iceland have a monster hill climb race using HPI Savages. This year was the first time electric Savage trucks were able to compete, and with Icelanders being fans of huge horsepower and massive off-road vehicles, it's no surprise that once again there was a good turnout for the competition yet again!
On June 2nd we held the annual Savage Hill Climb competition for the seventh time, nitro and electric Savages fighting for victory on 12 difficult and challenging courses. After an exciting and close competition Loftur Matthiasson won the Hill Climb for the second year running! And here are the results: 1.Loftur Matthiasson (Savage Flux HP) 720 points 2.
