Max Gotzl takes Rd5 & overall Czech Open series

The 5th and final round of the Czech Open series 2020 took place last weekend at the RC Klub Kolin track. The weather forecast was very promising for the race and we had nice sun all day, but the heavy rains in the days leading up to the event made the track wet even for the race, so there were no problems with dust or low traction. In Nitro Max Gotzl managed to take the TQ with the fastest time in qualifying with his Xray XB8, with Jiri Mara (Sworkz) placed 2nd and Jan Horacek 3rd. In the Ebuggy class Jiri Benes took the TQ in front of Jiri Dvorak and Jan Domansky. The start of the 30 minute main final got off to a rough start for pole sitter Gotzl as he made a mistake on the opening lap, but a few laps later he was able to pass Jiri and finish the race in first place with a comfortable gap. Mara took the runner up spot with Jan Hujer finished 3rd overall. In Ebuggy the top 3 after qualifying had the exact same points after the three finals, but Jiri Dvorak with a faster time took the Win in front of Jiri Benes, and Jan finished 3rd.

This was the last race of the season, so we also had the overall championship prize-giving ceremony. Max Gotzl was able to take both titles, Nitro and Ebuggy with the highest points. With 3 races were counting Max took 3 TQ+Wins with both cars. In Nitro Tomas Kapicka was 2nd and Martin Vins 3rd, with Ebuggy Jiri Dvorak took the 2nd place and Jiri Benes 3rd.
