Gruber TQ’s ENS season opener

Capricorn’s Toni Gruber has TQ’d the opening round of the Euro Nitro Series in Germany.  With 2023 a big year for 1:8 Onroad with the return of the World Championship after a four year break,  this year’s ENS is an opportunity for Europe’s top drivers to get in some top level competition ahead of the trip to Japan in October.  The first of three rounds that make up this year’s series, Gruber secured the overall TQ in Ettlingen when he topped the final two qualifiers with his Ielasi Tuned powered C804.  Behind the German, former World Champion Simon Kurzbuch secured P2 for Mugen having TQ’d the opening qualifier.  Fastest in Q2, reigning European Champion Dominic Greiner will start P3 ahead of Capricorn team-mate Merlin Depta with Team Shepherd’s Lars Hoppe and Infinity’s Jilles Groskamp completing the Top 6.  In 1:10, Melvin Diekmann secured the TQ topping 3 of the four qualifiers for Capricorn with Q3 pace setter Milan Holthuis lining up second.
