Coelho wins A1 easily after early touch with Orlowski

Bruno Coelho took an easy and comfortable win in the opening A-Main of 4WD at EOS Slovakia, the Xray driver leading his team-mate Martin Bayer, Lee Martin and Michal Orlowski.  Starting from the TQ, the first lap saw a bobble from Coelho who went wide as he got up on two wheels allowing Orlowski to the front but it was short lived. Under pressure from Coelho, the Schumacher driver make a number errors leading to him touching the piping, and trying to get back on to the racing line there was contact with the Pole fairing off worst as his car flipped and needed to be marshalled.  From there, already with gap over the chasing pack, Coelho opened up the lead lap after lap ahead of Daniel Kobbevik until the Norwegian made a mistake with just 3-laps to go.  This allowed Bayer back up to second but he had Martin and a recovering Orlowski right behind.  Orlowski got by Martin but handed it back again with a mistake on the final jump as he attempted a final pass to get by Bayer.
