Haatanen gets it done in A1

Joona Haatanen has won the opening 2WD A-Main at the Euro Offroad Series in Germany.  Top Qualifier for Round 4 of the championship at Arena33, the Team Associated young gun took the win the hard way after an error lost him the comfortable lead he had built up over the opening 3-minutes. Allowing Lee Martin to slip through to the front as Haatanen rejoined the track, the Finn would push hard forcing a mistake from the Yokomo driver 2-laps later.
