Czech 1/8th Off-road Nationals – Report

The fourth round of the Czech 1/8th Off-road Nationals was held in Skripov recently. The track was nicely prepared and watering meant the traction, that was low at the beginning, would come up soon. In the 1/8th Nitro Buggy class Ales Bidovsky dominated Q1, while Jiri Mara took a super close TQ in Q2. The third round was won by Kaja Novotny by just few tenths in front of Ales Bidovsky and this meant the overall TQ went to Ales from Kaja and Jiri. Over in 1/8th E-Buggy Kaja Novotny was on fire, TQing all three rounds meant a clean sweep for the TQ while also setting a new track record. Behind him Max Gotzl and Ales Bidovsky would round out the top 3 for now.

For the Nitro Buggy mains the track started to dry up, leaving it slower than in the qualifiers. Kaja took the pole position for the A-main and he would lead the race from start to finish to take the win from Max Gotzl and Jiri Mara in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
