Robert Pietsch dominates Rd1 German Region South Series

German Region South Series

Last weekend, the MAC Nürnberg hosted the first round of the German Region South Series at their track, the Nürnberg Zollhausring. The event was open to both 1/8th and 1/10th scale classes and in the 1/8th scale class it was Robert Pietsch, driving the new Shepherd Velox prototype, that took the pole position ahead of Kyosho racer Andreas Hammerl who qualified 2nd with Philip Eberle in 3rd. In the race it started well for Pietsch, but a coming together with a few back markers dropped him back to 5th which allowed Hammerl to take the lead, but the Shepherd racer was able to work his way back up to 1st to win by 2 laps at the flag. Andreas Hammerl finished 2nd with Serpent racer Michael Eisele in 3rd.

In the 1/10th scale class it was Thomas Günsel, driving the Xray NT1, that took the pole spot from team mates Robert Pietsch and Dirk Wischnewski, who qualified 2nd and 3rd respectively. In the race it was Robert Pietsch that could take the win after pole man Günsel ran into troubles which also allowed Wischnewski move up into 2nd at the end with Christoph Pietsch claiming the final podium spot in 3rd.
