Marcel Schneider takes 1/10th 2WD Off-Road Nats title

The 2017 German 1/10th Electric 2WD Nationals were held at the MAC Hütschenhausen track recently. The first ever nationals on this full astro turf track held some difficulties for the drivers as the large and fast layout with multiple high speed single double and quad jumps made it hard to manage error-free runs. In addition the weather was very changing and with short showers especially on Saturday for the fastest heat, it made qualifying very difficult. In the 2WD Modified class it was veteran Schumacher racer Ralf Missel with the overall TQ from young Marcel Schneider who put his R Stonem converted Team C TM2V2 on the 2 spot from free agent, Jörn Neumann in 3rd.

In the finals it was a 3-horse battle between Marcel, Tom and Jörn. Marcel won the first final ahead of Tom and Jörn, while Jörn stroke back in A2 to win the second leg ahead of Marcel and Tom. The decision would come down to the third final in which Marcel and Jörn both changed the lead multiple times until Marcel made a final move on the penultimate last lap to leap-frog Jörn and take the overall win.

2WD Modified final results:
1. Marcel Schneider – Absima/TeamC
