Bruno Coelho has won the opening A-Main at the season opener of the Euro Offroad Series in Warsaw, Poland.  Having secured the TQ yesterday, the Xray driver drove a faultless race to win easily ahead of reigning champion Michal Orlowski.  Starting from third on the grid, Orlowski would have a great first lap getting by Martin Bayer to put Coelho in his sights.  While he would close down the 4WD Champion, having just set the fastest lap of the race he would make a mistake next time round and with just three laps to go Coelho could back off his pace and cruise to the win.  Behind the two title favourites, Team Associated’s Joona Haatanen came through from fifth on the grid to complete the Top 3 benefiting from mistakes by Bayer who would finish 4th and Martin who dropped back to 6th by the finish.
