The 2nd round of Olomouc cup took place last Saturday and Kaja Novotny gave this report. “Again it was a rainy morning and the start of the race was delayed. Practice was possible but nearly nobody wanted to drive their car on the wet astroturf, so my first qualification was my first drive on the track. After qualifications in 4wd I took TQ with a 2-1-1 while in 2wd, with issues with my speed controller, finished sixth with a 3-2-5. TQ in 2wd went to local driver Tomas Koudelka with his DEX210. For the 2WD finals we did some changes, put some weights on the rear and finished second overall with a 3-2-2. Tomas Koudelka didn’t give anybody a chance and won all three finals with the new RDRP +11mm chassis. In 4wd I finished first in all three finals with Marek Schiller (DEX410) second and Tomas Koudelka (DEX410) third overall on the podium.
Last Sunday saw round 2 of the Norwegian Nationals for electric modified touring at Sørlihavna. It was a rainy day and the weather prognoses was really bad. In the qualifiers the rain hit the track really bad, with the arranging club postponing the start by one hour, in hope of better weather. That did not come, and people started prepping the car for the wet. After the wet qualifiers the standings where pretty random.
