The second round of the XRS Poland was held this past weekend in Lodz. In the opening 2WD and 4WD qualifiers, Xray’s Kaja Novotny would lead the way but two messed-up rounds meant that the decision for the overall TQs would be shifted to Sunday as Bartek Zambrzycky was hot on the heels of Kaja. On Sunday morning a leaking shock absorber of one of the competitors left the usually high grip carpet greasy as soap meaning the remaining qualifiers would be held in very difficult conditions. Especially the 2WD buggies were sliding a lot but some last-minute setup changes on Kaja’s buggy allowed him to snatch the overall TQ and also in the 4WD class the young man would excel on the unusually slippery track.
In time for the finals things got a bit better but traction was still not fully up again and Kaja made the best out of the conditions, leaving Bartek Zambrzycki (Yokomo) and Jakub Luczak (Xray) behind in second and third. In the 4WD finals Kaja and Bartek showed some great speed and good fights but at the end it was again Kaja that came out fastest, taking another win from Bartek and Jakub.
