Martin Wollanka wins Xray Offroad GP Italy

Martin Wollanka wins Xray Offroad GP Italy

The recent Xray Offroad GP Italy was run in mixed weather conditions with the Saturday being washed away by rain. To overcome the waiting time the Xray team held a tech meeting and later had a go at a nearby karting track with the race being won by Martin Bayer in front of Miguel Matias and Martin Wollanka. Come Sunday the track was still muddy but the race started nevertheless with 1/8th E-buggy qualifying. The round was won by Martin Wollanka who suffered from a mistake mid-race but electrical problems by the then-leading Miguel Matias handed Martin back the win in the qualifier.

In the following nitro qualifiers Martin Bayer, Miguel Matias and Martin Wollanka copied the karting result to take 1-2-3 in round 1 only to see Martin Wollanka make the fastest 5 minute run in round 2. Soon after the heaven opened its gates again leaving the organisers no choice but to cancel the meeting and to use the qualifying results to determine the winner. This handed Martin Wollanka the win in both the nitro and electric class with Martin Bayer and Miguel Matias taking 2nd and 3rd respectively in the nitro class.
