The fifth round of the Czech Open was held in Usti nad Labem. It was the series’ maiden race on astro turf with the very bumpy track conditions making it a challenging race for everyone. Xray’s Kaja Novotny would quickly adapt to the conditions and he would sweep the qualifiers to take the overall TQ from Stepan Silhavy (Xray). The semi A at first didn’t went to plan for Kaja who struggled in the opening stages but once he got into the groove he was able to build a gap and take the win by more than a lap on the 2nd place driver with a time fast enough to get him the pole position for the main final. The A-main than was a smooth sailing for Kaja after an unfortunate Stepan had to retire some minutes in to the race. Ultimately Kaja would bring home the win with Ivo Viktorin (Serpent) 2nd and Martin Zicha (Mugen) 3rd.
