Michael Salven crowned German 1/8th on-road champ
The German 1/8th Nitro On-road National Championships were held this past weekend at the AMC Hamm track. The qualification of the faster Class 1 was won by Mugen’s Robert Pietsch from John Ermen (ARC) and Michael Salven (Serpent) with Patrick Schäfer (Shepherd) and Steven Cuypers (Mugen) completing the top 5 result. The 45-minute main final then was a pretty close affair with the top 3 drivers being separated by only about 3 seconds on the finish line. Michael Salven would give Serpent’s new 977 Evo-2 a maiden national win with Steven Cuypers coming in second. In third ARC’s Lars Hoppe completed the top 3 podium result while TQ Robert Pietsch had to settle for 8th.
