Race Report Rhein Main Warm Up Bischofsheim
Every year the season opener to the German 1/8 Buggy class is held at the Rhein Main Warm Up in Bischofsheim just outside of Frankfurt.
The main class is 1/8 Nitro Buggy, but most of the drivers run EBuggy as well. Practice started on Friday and the track grooved in nicely.
Both of my Serpent SRX8 and SRX8E worked very good from the beginning. I tried a few different tires to keep up with the changing track conditions, to know whats best for quaifying. I ended up with Blockades on Nitro Buggy and Suburbs on E Buggy. I could TQ Round 1 and 5 in Nitro to qualify 2nd overall. E-Buggy I was 4th overall.
Semi Finals on Sunday, in E-Buggy I took a comfortable win to start 2nd for the Mains. The Nitro Semi was a nice battle between Carsten Keller, JQ and me. I ended up in 2nd place and 3rd on the grid for the main.
A1 and A2 in E Buggy worked perfect and I could take the lead quickly and bring home the victory in both finals.
The 40min Nitro final started out good and I was right in the mix with the leaders, but some mistakes dropped me down to 3rd place where I finished.
A solid race weekend with a victory in E-Buggy and 3rd in Nitro.
Setups from both cars are attached.
