Orlwoski wins mistake filled A2

Michal Orlowski has won the second A-Main of 2WD at the Euro Offroad Series in Austria which saw four different race leaders all of whom seemed to not want to win as the each gave away their leads with mistakes.  In the end the race came down to a showdown between Orlowski and Finnish star Joona Haatanen, with the Associated driver relinquishing the lead when he came up short on the triple allowing Orlowski back into first position which this time he held to the finish.  Having benefited from a clean A1 to take, Top Qualifier Neil Cragg looked on to repeat the result but it all went wrong on lap 5 as he got it wrong allowing Bruno Coelho to catch him before a mistake at the tabletop allowed the Xray driver through.  Coelho’s lead was short lived as on the next lap he got stuck in the wall section allowing Haatanen to the front.  For Coelho the race would go downhill as he retired while running 6th, with Cragg coming back to complete the Top 3 with everything to play for A3.
