Herfried Pucher wins Austrian 1/8th on-road nationals

Herfried Pucher wins Austrian 1/8th on-road nationals

The final round of the Austrian nitro on-road nationals took place at the Amstetten track. Herfried Pucher, Nejc Mihelic and Manuel Gremlica all had the chance to take the 2013 national title and during the practice sessions Pucher made his intentions clear to win his third title after taking the 1997 and 2008 championship. He was able to conserve his performance for the final where he started second and soon overtook Gremlica to take the lead and never looked back. Pucher was later able to cruise to the victory as his closest competitors ran into trouble; Gremlica’s car suffered clutch issues and Njec had a coming together with another driver resulting in an additional pit stop. At the end, Herfried won the race almost four laps ahead of Njec and Höller Helmut. The win also secured him the national title in front of Manuel Gremlica and Nejc Mihelic.
