Western German Championships Rd1 – Report

The first of four rounds of the Western German Nitro Onroad Championships was held at the track of the MCK Dormagen in the North of Cologne. A total of 65 competitors joined this first qualifier for the German Nationals in the three classes of 1/8th scale class 1 and 2 and as well as 1/10th scale 200mm. Following the Nitro-West warmup race two weeks before, which has been washed out by rain, all drivers tried to make maximum use of the ten hours of practice on Saturday, which was interrupted by slight rain for about one hour at lunch time. Unfortunately more rain hit the track in the evening which resulted in a still damp track during the first heat on Sunday morning.
