Edgar Montellà scored in the Chantada Hillclimb his fourth podium of the season in the category 2 of the Sportech Spanish Hillclimb Championship. The Andorra born driver put his Speed Car GTR in third position among the 'CM-Promoción' cars after a very good drive in the event held in the region of Galicia, the second last of this year schedule.
Edgar set the third fastest time of the category 2 in the three timed climbs run along the weekend, one on Saturday afternoon and two on Sunday morning. All were held under a bright sun, with high temperatures that increased the difficulty of the course in the 'Ribeira Sacra', with a very narrow and twisty first half, among vineyards, followed by a very fast second sector, on a three lanes wide road. Chantada's result puts Edgar fifth overall of the series, with chances to still fight for a top three position in the championship, which last round is due at the La Santa Hillclimb the 29th and 30th of September.
As well as the round of the Spanish championship, at the Chantada was run the 'Escudería Chantada Trophy' for the drivers not entering the national series. In this competition there was another podium for Speed Car with the third position scored by José Antonio De Arriba with his Speed Car GT 1000. Among the entrants were also carcross like the Speed Car Xtrem of Moisés Tumbeiro, who finished in fifteenth position.
