Honigl crowned Champion with Rd4 win in Austria

Hupo Honigl wins Rd4 in Austria and seals National title

The fourth round of the Austrian electric buggy Nationals was held in Litschau, another beautiful track in the north of the country. This time there was 75 entries, a little bit less then normal, but this could have been due to the very bad weather forecast, which in the end was wrong and the racers were treated to blue sky and about 28°C on Sunday. The track went from very slick to a blue groove high traction track which was very good fun to drive. Qualifying saw Roland Macho, driving a Durango, and Hupo Honigl battling most of the time for the win, but the last round was won by Rene Trauner, another fast Durango driver. Hupo took the TQ in front of 3 other DEX410s with 7 in the top 10.

The finals were really interesting and fast on the blue groove track. Hupo won the first 2 mains and therefore the meeting. The last main was really interesting to watch with Rene Trauner and Martin Kreil battling right until the last corner. Trauner finished 2nd and Martin Kreil 3rd, meaning Team Durango had the second 1-2-3 sweep in a row. Roland Macho was a little bit unlucky in the finals and finished 4th overall. With only one more round to run Hupo Honigl has already been crowned Austrian National Champion for 2010.
