Eric Dankel wins German 200mm nitro champs

Last weekend the German 1/10th 200mm nitro championship was held at the legendary track in Munster. The weather forecast promised rain for the practise days but dry weather for Saturday and Sunday. The Qualification started on Saturday morning, with the best round out of five counting. The whole weekend saw a close battle between Dirk Wischnewski and Eric Dankel, but Eric was slightly faster than Dirk and could secure the TQ spot in front of him. Just like the current EFRA rules there was no direct qualifying for the top 4 spots, and everybody had to go through the 30 minutes semi finals. The A final started after a small break and Dirk was leading the field followed by Eric and Toni Gruber. For the whole run Dirk and Eric battled for the lead with the better end for Eric who could profit from a couple of smaller mistakes from Dirk. At the end the two were only separated by 13 seconds with a strong Dominic Greiner finishing in 3rd position.
