Pinisch & Hönigl win at Austrian 1/10th Buggy Nats Rd1

Round 1 of the Austrian 1/10th Electric Off-road Nationals was held at the MRC Oberaich track. Although rather big for a 1/10th scale race the track is among the favourite of most drivers with the natural dirt surface being very challenging but a lot of fun. Saturday started off with a track that got really bumpy but also offered high traction yet overnight rain changed things massively, leading to much lower grip but a smoother track. After some very close racing in the 2WD mains, Peter Pinisch (Team Associated) walked away with the win from Xray’s Hupo Hönigl while Stefan Pfeiffhofer (Team Associated) had to settle for 3rd overall.

2WD final results:
1. Peter Pinisch – Team Associated
2. Hupo Hönigl – Xray
3. Stefan Pfeiffhofer – Team Associated
4. Martin Kreil – Team Associated
5. Lucas Grainer – Team Associated
6. Marcel Reketty – Yokomo
7. Rene Trauner – Yokomo
