Pietsch & Kraegefski win at German 1/8th nationals

Pietsch & Kraegefski wins German 1/8th nationals

The 2014 German 1/8th scale nitro on-road championships took place this past weekend at the well-known Hollmoorring of the MC Munster located south of Hamburg. The 260 meter track, which hosted European Championships already, offers a challenging layout but has become bumpy over the years. A total of 78 drivers, 48 in class 1 and 30 in class 2, competed in the single-event German championships. The event was well organised and helped by the fact that the expected rain, thunder and lightning stayed away from the track, making it four dray days with only a slight drizzle on Saturday for a few moments. For the second year hand-out tyres were mandatory, this time 32/35 shore front/rear from Contact Tires which worked very well.
