Report by Sascha Klug

Friday was a full day of practice. It was super cold the whole day and the grip conditions on the track were super strange, so it was hard to find a good pace.

On Saturday the weather god wasn’t on our side and we had rain the whole day. The organization team changed to time schedule and put the first qualification run to Sunday morning. We used the time on the track to prepare our stuff and have some fun with friends.

Then they started a funny pit stop challenge where Stefan Strasser and Sascha Klug could win the Drink, Eat and tire change challenge. After that Thilo Diekmann and his team invited us to the evening party with beer and music.

 Sunday morning. Dry track. So let’s go and race.

3 Qualification runs followed by 2 short final runs were planned for the race.

In 1/10 nitro it was Stefan Strasser who was fighting for the win. He said it was very hard to find the right setup because while driving it feels like every lap had different grip conditions. He managed the third place after Qualification and could win the overall ranking with two perfect final runs.

1/10th nitro class results:

  1. Stephan Strasser – XRAY NT1
  2. Silvio Piperato
  3. Dirk Bräuer

Sascha Klug was fighting for the podium in the 1/8 nitro class. He struggled a bit to find a good pace in this strange conditions. But in the end it was enough for the second position after Qualification and also P2 after finals with two clean runs.
