Champlin impresses to take TQ on EOS debut
One way to impress your sponsors when they fly you half way across the World is to perform well and Broc Champlin has exceeded that by securing the overall TQ at the season finale of the Euro Offroad Series in Germany. Making his debut in the series, the American took his LRP powered Schumacher to the fastest time in all three rounds of 2WD Buggy qualifying on the carpet track. In Q1, Champlin topped the times from new team-mate and former series Champion Lee Martin and Sworkz Micha Widmaier. In the second round, the visitor was even quicker, this time fastest from Widmaier and European Champion Tommy Hall. Wrapping up the first day of action in Daun, Champlin made it three from three becoming the only driver to record 18 laps. Behind, Team Associated’s Marcus Kaerup posted the second fastest time of Q3 with reigning EOS Champion Michal Orlowski third fastest. With the 20-year-old from Las Vegas making his EOS debut from pole position, behind him Widmaier starts second with Martin 3rd followed by Orlowski, Kaerup and Hall.
