Austrian Electric On-road Nationals Rd5 – Report

Round five of the Austrian Electric On-road Nationals was held under extremely hot weather conditions at the ERC Wiener Neudorf track near Vienna, with ambient temperatures reaching 40 degree Celsius and the track surfaces reached a scorching 60 degree Celsius. A total of 29 drivers attended in the three classes of Touring Car Modified, Touring Car Stock and Formula. The newly crowned champion Dominic Vogl was on holidays so Patrick Gollner (Yokomo) was the pre-event favourite in the Touring Car Modified class. As expected Patrick grabbed the TQ, although five-time champion Martin Schuster (Tamiya), at his maiden outing this season, as well as Mario Sowka (Serpent) gave Patrick a hard time. In the finals Patrick scored two easy wins to secure his first victory this season. Winning the third A-main and securing the runner-up spot was Mario Sowka, followed by Martin Schuster.
