Coelho wins in Slovakia to share EOS lead with Martin

Coelho wins in Slovakia to share EOS lead with Martin

World Champion Bruno Coelho kept Xray’s unbeaten record at the Hudy Arena intact by claiming his first Euro Offroad Series victory today with a dominant and important win in A3.  Going into the closing race of the Slovakian event, three drivers stood a chance of the Round 2 victory with Coelho needing to do the most to deny A1 winner Martin Wollanka and A2 winner Lee Martin the win.  Top Qualifier for his team’s home event, the Portuguese ace would put in a stunning drive to not just win the leg but set the all important fastest race time. Running 14 laps over the 5-minutes, the only driver to do so over the 3 legs, this would give him the tie break, all three drivers ending up on the same points with a win and 2nd each. While Martin would finish second to Coelho in the deciding race, Wollanka’s A2 winning time would secure the Austrian second with third meaning both the reigning champion and Coelho are now tied at the top of the points standings.
