Maxi Vogl wins at 2018 Oktoberfestpokal

The MCC Türkheim club in Germany played host to the Oktoberfestpokal race this past weekend, attracting 50 entries in several on-road classes.
Perfect weather conditions made for a great atmosphere on and off the track. In the 1/8th IC Track class, Maxi Vogl was able to secure the 3rd position on the grid after minor problems. Traditionally the finals were run in a different format. Triple 15-minutes finals were and in A1 Maxi could take over the lead after problems at the front. By virtue of a fuel-saving driving style and only two stops for fuel he never lost the lead to take the win in A1. The start of the second final was cleaner and the leading trio was able to quickly break away from the field. Silvio Hächler, Tobi Kerler and Maxi Vogl showed a fair but hard fight from the start. Unfortunately, Maxi ran into got electronic problems, the on-off switch had come off and he had to give up this run which has been won by Silvio. The third final was clean too. This time, four cars broke away from the field. Maxis first pit-stop went perfect. He came in one lap later than all other drivers and was able to overtake both cars in front of him. Between position two and three a hard fight raged, that allowed Maxi to brake away. He did not give up the lead and won the enormous Oktoberfest Cup 2018 in front of Silvio and Armin Baier.
