Jiri Mara successful at Czech Open series Rd2

Jiri Mara successful at Czech Open series Rd2

Round two of the popular Czech Open series for 1/8th nitro buggies was held at the Horni Jeleni track over the weekend. The qualifying was a very tight affair with local star Max Götzl, Jiri Mara, Tomkas Kapicka and Kaja Novotny all being in the mix for the overall TQ. Eventually Jiri would come out fastest after the qualifiers from Max and Kaja in second and third respectively. After a couple of changes for the semifinal Kaja, who struggled a bit with overall grip, managed to take the pole position for the A-main that saw the top 4 drivers quickly pulling away from the field. Around the 15 minute mark Jiri and Kaja had opened a gap on the chasing pack with both swapping positions several times. Some 26 minutes into the race Kaja had to let Jiri go as the Xray driver encountered a small drivetrain problem with a stone in the clutch bell hindering his car’s performance. This meant Jiri Mara (Serpent) would be able to cruise to the win with Kaja taking the runner-up spot from Tomas Kapicka (Kyosho).

A-main result:
1. Jiri Mara – Serpent
2. Kaja Novotny – Xray
3. Tomas Kapicka – Kyosho
4. Jiri Dvorak – Mugen
5. Karel Hajek – Kyosho
6. Jan Kapicka – Kyosho
7. Martin Pejzl – Xray
8. Martin Rytir – TLR
9. Tomas Fic – Kyosho
10. Vladimir Pour – Xray
11. Max Gotzl – Xray
12. Petr Klatovsky – SWorkz
