Burak Kilick double at Messe(Statt)-Cup Leipzig

This year’s Messse(Statt)-Cup Leipzig, normally held indoors as part of the Modell Hobby Spiel fair, was this year taken outdoors as the Corona virus restrictions meant the original plan couldn’t go ahead. Thankfully the weather was good and the 3-day event hosted by MRC Leipzig went ahead without any problems. Qualifying in 1/8th Nitro saw Burak Kilic (Mugen) take the top spot ahead of Aaron Rönick (Associated) and Johannes Klett, while in EP Buggy, it was again Burak, this time ahead of Sophie Müller (Sworkz) and Steve Krause (Kyosho). The top 3 in EP remained the same after the three 10 minute mains with Burak taking the win ahead of Sophie and Steve. In the 30 minute Nitro final Burak Kilic was again the person to beat and he was joined at the front by his brother Berkan (Mugen), the pairing winning their respective semi finals to line up first and second. Burak would win by under a lap over his brother Berkan with Aaron Rönick completing the podium in 3rd.

Thanks to Abdullah Kilic for the report
