Patrick Fankhauser wins Swiss 200mm Nats Rd1

The opening round of the 6-race Swiss 200mm National Championship was held at the Sitterdorf track. The weekend started off wet but the track dried just in time for the four rounds of qualifying. Traugott Schär, Raphael Wicki and Patrick Fankhauser made up the top 3 after the qualifiers and after a strong semi final Raphael was able to take the pole position for the final. The 30-minute A-main started with a lot of confusion and incidents and Michael Schäfer, coming from the 7 spot on the grid, took maximum benefit of the situation as he was able to take over the lead. Michael’s lead did not last long though as he made a small error that allowed Patrick Fankhauser to take the 1 spot right before the first fuel stops. At around half time Raphael Wicki was able to put a lot of pressure on Patrick but the latter was able to defend his position till the end to take the win from Raphael Wicki in second and Theo Giannakos in third.

A-main result:
1. Patrick Fankhauser – Xray/Picco
2. Raphael Wicki – Xray/Picco
3. Theo Giannakos – Serpent/Picco
