Patrick Hofer doubles at 2017 Winterchamps

The annual Winterchamps event was held in Hohenems, Austria with about 160 entries for the three classes of 4WD Buggy, 2WD Buggy and Stadium Truck. The weekend kicked off with two rounds of free practice, two round of timed practice as well as the opening two qualifiers. Ultimately Team Associated’s Patrick Hofer would grab the TQ after the qualifiers in the 4WD and Stadium Truck class while Fabian Widmer (Yokomo) came out fastest in 2WD. The 4WD finals then saw Patrick taking commanding wins in A1 and A2 to take the overall win from the Xray duo of Nico Schmid and Philip Jeisy. The 2WD finals saw some intense battles for the lead and after a bobble of Patrick in the minefield section, Fabian Widmer took his first Winterchamps victory from Patrick in second and Nico Schmid (Xray) in third.

Finally in the Truck class it was again Patrick that excelled with Christian Müller (Team Associated) and veteran racer, Robert Hart (Team Associated) taking the final podium spots.

Thanks to Patrick Hofer for the report.
