Race Report from last weekends EOS Round 3 race at the Hudy Arena in Trencin, Slovakia. Most of the drivers made the trip early to attend the open practice on Thursday. It helped a lot to get some track time as some jumps made the track very tricky.
On Friday there was another few Rounds of practice, followed by 2 Rounds of 2WD qualifying. Unluckily I broke in the first one and had a not so good second one. I tried to get some safe runs in for the next 2 Rounds which put me 8th on the Grid. The finals where again tough, I had 2 DNF’s and finished only 10th overall.
4WD went much better and I started 3rd for the finals. In A1 a early mistake, put me back a little bit but I recoverd to 2nd place. A2 I finished 3rd after some good battles with Naoto. A3 was unlucky as I came together with Naoto on the start and waited to let him back by, but it puts us to the back of the pack. We both could overtake most of the drivers to finish 2nd and 3rd. So I ended overall with a 4th place finish in 4WD.
4×4 Short Course went very good from the beginning as I could TQ 3 out of 4 Rounds to secure the overall TQ position. The finals went brilliant as well, in which I could win all 3 mains.
