Klausner wins RC Hillclimbing World Games


Michael Klauser sen. won the recent X-RC.org RC Hillclimbing World Games at the Hacksteiner-Hills in Faistenau/Austria. Despite the bad weather many drivers attended the meeting to conquer the 65 metres long up-hill track. The first driver who successfully made the whole track was Christian Brachmaier who took 15.5 seconds with his .30 OS-powered HPI Trophy Truggy. The second driver who managed the track was Michael Klausner sen. with his Novarossi-powered Mugen MBX-6T who needed 17.8 seconds. These two drivers have been the only ones during qualification who made the “Full Hill”. Come the finals it was again Michael Klausner sen. who outperformed his competitors by tackling the challenging track three times in front of local hero Rene Rinnerthaler with his SH .28-powered HongNor X2T and TQ Christian Brachmaier. Roland Winklhofer who was on 3rd spot after the qualifying wasn’t able to hold that position as his 2WD FG large scale Beetle struggled in the wet and soapy conditions.
