Volker fends off Coelho in A1


Ronald Volker saw off intense pressure from Bruno Coelho to win the opening A-Main at Round 3 of the Yokomo Euro Touring Series in Austria this morning.  Top Qualifier for the race, the only let up for Volker came when Coelho’s car tapped the boards but he quickly recovered with his Xray again all over the rear bumper of the Yokomo.  Despite laying down the fastest lap of the final on his penultimate lap, a slow final lap meant Volker would hold on to win by 3/10th of a second.  Behind them Viljami Kutvonen would complete the Top 3 almost 4-seconds back, the Awesomatix driver benefiting from Alexander Hagberg making contact with Marc Rheinard in the 2nd minute of the race.  Rheinard would end the race 4th, 9/10th back from Viljami followed by Hagberg and Team Associated’s Juho Levanen.
