Matsukura wins A1, Martin heads title fight

Matsukura wins A1, Martins heads title fight

Naoto Matsukura took an easy win in the opening A-Main at the Euro Offroad Series season #4 finale. Starting from the TQ positon, the Kyosho driver finished almost 7-seconds clear of second placed Martin Bayer with Michal Orlowski completing the Top 3. While up front the race was rather processional, further back all the attention focused on the title battle between Lee Martin and Joern Neumann, the pair clashing early on.  In the end it was Martin who would be the top finisher in 4th with Neumann finishing 6th behind Martin’s new Yokomo team-mate Marc Rheinard.  Commenting on his race Matsukura had little to say other than he ‘drove safe’ and he needs to ‘do same again once more’ to get the overall win he predicted when he topped seeding practice.
