McBest Series Rd9 & Rd10 – Report

Last weekend the last two rounds of the McBest race series were held on the technical MRG Dogern track. In 1/10th Touring Marco Schwab, Dominik Denoth and Stefan Wüthrich were equal on points going into the final weekend while in 1/8th scale Martin Wenger only needed one good result to drive home his victory in the overall ranking as Beat Heiniger and Stefan Graber fought for 2nd place. The weekend started off wet on Saturday and the tyre choice was a hard one because the conditions kept changing. In 1/8th scale Stefan Wüthrich unfortunately lost a lot of time when a tyre left its rim while leading the race as Martin took the win from Beat and this meant Martin Wenger would snatch a back-to-back championship.
