Patrick Hofer wins at Swiss Nitro Buggy Nats Rd6

Patrick Hofer wins at Swiss Nitro Buggy Nats Rd6

Round six of the Swiss Nitro Buggy Nationals was held in Courgenay over the weekend. Team Associated’s Patrick Hofer would take the TQ after the qualifiers but team mate Ronny Lüber secured himself the pole position for the A-main event after a very quick run in the semifinals. With an 8th place in his semi, after a longer-than-planned pitstop, Patrick grabbed a very lucky 10th place on the grid. At the start of the 45-minute main, Ronny soon got under pressure of a swift Jeremy Pittet (HB Racing). After the first rounds of pit stops Ronny was still in the lead, although hardly chased by Jeremy. Once the traffic and the bumpy track kicked on, both started to make mistakes and this promoted third placed Patrick Hofer into the lead that he would hold onto until the checkered flag. Behind him the race for the runner-up spot was on between Lüber and Pittet and it was simply decided by the amount of mistakes of both with Pittet ultimately holding the upper hand over Lüber. Elswhere in the Amateur class it was Daniel Föllmi to take the win from Sebastien Cuanoud in second and Stefan Wüthrich in third.
