Neumann wins A1

Jörn Neumann has won the opening A-Main of 2WD at the Euro Offroad Series in Germany.  Top Qualifier for the season finale, the Schumacher driver took a tone to tone win but the race wasn’t without its moments for the former champion. Leading from title contender Neil Cragg after Joona Haatanen made an error on the second lap, on the next lap Neumann got stuck in the piping. Luckily for the German Cragg’s Team Associated marshalled his car sending him back on his way in the lead.  The same incident would effectively end championship leader Michal Orlowski’s race as trying to avoid Neumann and Cragg he crashed and dropped down the order.  Benefiting from these incidents, Lee Martin would move up to second from fifth on the grid.  Starting to mount a challenge on the leader he would have a mistake of his own on the penultimate lap that allowed Neumann to take the win by 1.1-seconds. Behind Martin, Cragg completed the Top 3 followed by Bruno Coelho and Haatanen.
