Hönigl & Kreil win at Austrian 1/10th Buggy opener

The opening round of the Austrian 1/10th Off-road Nationals was held at the GMAC Litschau club, one of the few real dirt tracks left in the country. The weather forecast looked terrible the week before the event, with even having the chance of snow on Sunday. Luckily things did not materialise with only one rain delay on Saturday afternoon. Racing on Sunday was held in very cold and slippery conditions, making things difficult for the drivers. In 2WD Buggy Xray’s Hupo Hönigl could secure the TQ in front of AE’s Peter Pinisch and Xray’s Lucas Grainer. The finals were even closer and Pinisch, Grainer and Hönigl won one final each so in the end the best time made the difference, which Hönigl had in front of Grainer and Pinisch.

In 4WD Martin Kreil could snatch the TQ spot with the fastest time in the last qualifier. In the finals it was a close affair between Kreil, Hönigl and Grainer but Martin could win the first two finals and get the overall win in front of Hönigl and Grainer for an all-Xray podium.
