Patrick Hofer wins Swiss 1/8th Buggy Nats Rd5

Patrick Hofer wins Swiss 1/8th Buggy Nats Rd5

The fifth round of the Swiss 1/8th Buggy Nationals was held at the ORCM club in Montagny. The weather conditions were pretty challenging with heavy rain on Saturday and burning sun on Sunday, meaning the track surface would break up, revealing loads of stones on the racing line which made car setup pretty difficult. The A-main event was highlighted by the engine flame-outs of various drivers and with about 10 minutes to go, the race for the win was a 2-horse battle between Patrick Hofer and Joachim Kallen. Both raced nose to tail with Joachim in front, fending off all attacks by Patrick. Then, in the last corner of the final lap, Joachim’s engine stalled “LeMans 2016 style”, handing Patrick the win in an exciting final.
