Orlowski capitalises on mistake by Coelho to win A1

Michal Orlowski took first blood in the 4wd class at the Euro Offroad Series in Warsaw, the battle with top qualifier Bruno Coelho failing to materialise after the Portuguese driver got it wrong on lap 3 and dropped down the order. Jorn Neumann would make it a Schumacher 1-2 as he took the runner up spot, with a recovering Coelho in 3rd and his Xray team mate Martin Bayer having a good run to 4th.

I tried to avoid him but I couldn’t brake in the air and we had a small contact and on the next jump he made another mistake.’ Once in front the young Polish driver put his head down and ran the fastest 5 minute run of the weekend. ‘I just kept it on 4 wheels, I just had a clean 5 minute run, so I have a fast time for the tie break if it’s needed.’
