Jörn Neumann wins German 1/8th Nitro Buggy Nats Rd1

The first of two final rounds for the German 1/8th Nitro Buggy Nationals were held this past weekend at the MSC Sand/Main e. V. club, host of the 2014 Buggy A Euros. The event started out wet but both the weather and track conditions got better over the weekend. Jörn Neumann would take the overall TQ after getting into the groove and winning the third, fourth and fifth qualifier. Behind him, Carsten Keller and Alexander Schmitt, who won Q2, made up the top 3 while the winner of the opening qualifier, Aaron Müller, had to settle for fourth overall. The semifinal B then went to veteran racer, Daniel Reckward from Sebastian Winterstein and Burak Kilic while the semi A was won by Jörn Neumann from Micha Widmaier and Philipp Guschl. The 40-minute main final then saw a bad start of Jörn while Micha made maximum use of the situation until Jörn slowly but steadily recovered. An additional fuel stop of Micha in the closing stages of the final along with a small error of the leader than allowed Jörn to made up some ground and to eventually taking the lead to win the opening round of the German Nationals. 2.5 seconds behind, Micha Widmaier ended the race on the runner-up spot while Alexander Schmidt completed the podium result.
