Klausner heads experienced podium at MORAC Graz

Klausner heads experienced podium at MORAC Graz

Last weekend saw the first club race of MORAC Graz on their new rebuilt track. Open to several classes including 1:5, 1:8 & 1:10 gas onroad, the event attracted drivers from Hungary, Slovenia and Austria. In 1:8 we saw great battle between reigning Slovenian champion Mihelic Nejc and reigning Austrian champion Michael Klausner for the Top Qualifier spot. Klausner was doing much faster lap times, setting a new track record of 16,259 sec compared to the previous time of 16.589 sec by Marco Müller, but didn’t manage to run 5 minutes without a fuel stop, so it was Motonica racer Mihelic Nejc that took the pole position ahead of the Mugen pairing of Michael Selner and Michael Klausner in 2nd and 3rd. At the very last qualifying heat it started to rain, getting very heavy a few minutes later. After a longer break the finals were started in several classes, but not all drivers wanted to run on the wet track, so in 1:8 they got the very experienced podium of 44 year old Michael Selner with the win, ahead of 64 year old Ewald Prochaska in 2nd and 47 year old Wolfgang Luttenberger in 3rd.
