II Preliminary XRS Poland and my debut with Serpent Project 4X model.
The first ride already shocked me. I had never driven a model with such a low center of gravity before , and it was noticeable on the track right away .
First preliminary races, however, were about learning the 4X chassis and personalization of settings and due to that the results were getting better and better. After 3 preliminary rounds, we came in 9th in A final,.Nevertheless, thanks to a great last round and the second best number of laps, we managed to get to the 5th placing.
After making small changes to the settings, we waited at the start, coped well with the turn but due to the fact that we got wiped out in the second one, we got eliminated and could not fight for the leadings placings, but our dynamic and even drive allowed us to catch up and reach the limit, that is 4th place, after ultimate overtaking Wiktor Twardowski.
The second race, unfortunatelly, wasn’t clean either. Treating the tires didn’t turn out to be a good decision and it did not change our placing.
Fighting for the podium, we went for it and got back to the previous tire oil. The race got started. Here I would like to thank Paweł Grześkowiak i Wiktor Twardowski for a great ride. Every one of us had a chance for the third placing. A fantastic fight beween the three models was rewarded with applause. We consider the competition successful, getting back to 13.5 Stock, the debut with this model and a great fight were remarkable. We focus, however, on the future, a test is yet ahead of us, in a Czech city, Bohumin,and soon after that there’s another preliminary XRS round. We are hungry for success and this isn’t over.
