We received a brief report from Motonica on last weekend’s first Austrian Championship race that was held at the Kirchberg track, host of this years European 1/8th ‘B’ Championships. The race was won by Herfried Pucher driving the P8.0R, less than a lap ahead of Serpent driver Harald Hofer in 2nd while 3rd spot went to Kyosho racer Thomas Sutrich, who was a lap further back. Herfried had the following to say about the race:
The season starts pretty well! The new car is even 2/10 faster then 2007. I arrived at the track on Saturday morning. Due to the fact, that I know it well, I just started with some testing program regarding shock oil and spring configurations, to stabilize the rear! The car was fast from beginning, and the biggest advantage was, that I could manage very constant laps!
