Götzl sweeps rained-out Czech Buggy opener

The opening round of the Czech 1/8th Off-road National Series was held last Saturday at the Kolin track. The weekend started off with free practice on Friday. During Saturday morning’s qualifiers Xray’s Max Götzl showed a very strong pace, taking the overall TQ in both the Nitro and Electric Buggy classes. SWorkz’s Jiri Mara and Xray’s Jiri Benes came in 2nd and 3rd respectively in Nitro while Marek Schiller and Ales Bidovsky completed the E-Buggy top 3. Going towards the nitro finals it started to rain during the first semi final with the weather getting more and more worse. This left the organisers with no choice but to call it a day, meaning the Nitro overall results were taken from the qualifiers, handing Max the overall win from Jiri Mara and Jiri Benes.

Thankfully at least the opening E-Buggy A-main could be run before the rain came with A1 being won by Max from tone to tone, leaving behind Team Associated’s Ales Bidovsky in 2nd and SWorkz’s Marek Ornst in 3rd which would also be the overall result due to the rain later the day.
