Joern Neumann wins season opener in Germany

Joern Neumann wins season opener in Germany

The opening round of the German 1/8th buggy Nationals were held last weekend in Senden. The event attracted 132 drivers and saw 4 rounds of controlled practice on Friday and 2 more rounds of practice on Saturday morning. In these 2 practice rounds, the 3 fastest laptimes in a row count towards reseeding the groups for qualifying and after that there were 5 rounds of qualifying with the best 3 counting. TQ went to Daniel Reckward, with Jörn Neumann in 2nd place and Tim Bremicker in 3rd. At the start of the 40 minute main final it was Daniel and Jörn that were battling it out for the victory. Jörn made a little mistake that cost him around 3-4 seconds and so Daniel had a 5 seconds lead. With Jörn pushing very hard he closed the gap and at the 30 minutes mark was able to pass Daniel and he never looked back. Joern took the win from Daniel Reckward in 2nd and Tim Bremicker in 3rd. The 2nd round is in 2 weeks in Osterhofen.
