Coelho takes 4WD win at EOS

Bruno Coelho has taken the 4WD Buggy win at the EOS season opener in Hann Münden, Germany.  The Xray driver led a 1-2 for the Slovakian manufacturer ahead of new team-mate David Ronnefalk with Saturday’s 2WD winner Michal Orlowski completing the podium for Schumacher.  In qualifying it was Ronnefalk who topped the first of the four qualifiers.  Having TQ’d 2WD, Orlowski went fastest in Q2 before Ronnefalk hit the top again Q3.  With Coelho taking the final round it was overall TQ for Ronnefalk ahead of his team-mate with Orlowski lining up P3 ahead of the Team Associated of newly crowned World Champion Davide Ongaro.  In the first of the finals it was Coelho who eventually took the win.  The former World Champion went to the front after a roll over from Ronnefalk approaching the half way mark but was overtaken again by the Swede when he had a mistake of his own a few laps later.  With Ronnefalk out front and looking like he had the win, another mistake in the dying moments was enough to allow Coelho through to take it.  A2 would see Ronnefalk again lead out the field but again a mistake allowed his team-mate through to the front only this time the Portuguese ace kept things clean to the finish for the overall win.  Winning A3, Ronnefalk would finish second with Ongaro completing the podium line-up.
