Martin Wollanka takes Austrian 1/8th Buggy title

Martin Wollanka takes Austrian 1/8th Buggy title

Round three of the Austrian 1/8th Nitro Buggy National Championship was held at the Kirchschlag track. The race started on Saturday with free practice and also the opening qualifiers in which Xray’s Martin Wollanka came out fastest. Martin would continue to dominate on Sunday as he took wins in two more qualifiers but the final two would went to Dominic Bauer (Mugen) and the pair would also make for entertaining semi finals but ultimately Martin would walk away with faster run in his semi. The opening stages of the main final then saw close fights between Martin and Dominic but at around the 15 minute mark Martin suffered a flame out due to running out of fuel after pushing too much. With Dominic up and away Martin now focussed on bringing home a second place which would win him the overall title, and so he had to find a way past second placed Michael Nalulowy (Kyosho) and with both pushing hard it was Michael who made a mistake that allowed Martin by and to take the overall second place but not without another moment he had to overcome due to having one fuel stop more than Michael. Ultimately Dominic brought home the win from a lucky Martin with Michael taking a third place finish.
