Hupo Hönigl doubles at Grand Prix of Russia

Hupo Hönigl doubles at Grand Prix of Russia

The Grand Prix of Russia 2014 was held at the huge Crocus Expo Facility in Moscow with almost 250 entries. The very well organised event was part of a huge hobby show and attracted thousands of hobbyists and spectators. The track was a typical European carpet track with wooden jumps and obstacles and due to the amount of drivers each class only had one 2 minute practise run, making it difficult for drivers to adapt to the track. In 1/8th E-Buggy and 2WD Modified Buggy Team C’s Hupo Hönigl was to take TQ and win beating Shin Adachi (Yokomo) and Jörg Tiit (Serpent) in 2WD while in E-Buggy Dmitry Malyshko took the runner-up spot. Elsewhere in 4WD Modified Buggy Shin came in 1st followed by Hupo and Jörg.
