Kaerup & Orlwoski win EOS Season #10 opener

After a couple of years of disruption caused by the pandemic, the Euro Offroad Series reignited in an epic way to provide some of the closest and most high-paced 1/10th Offroad racing Europe has seen in a very long time. The first of five race meetings planned for the tenth edition of the Euro Offroad Series (EOS) was hosted by a new club – ORC-B – in Göttingen, Germany on April 1st to 3rd 2022. Located on a former indoor football pitch,the permanent track looked small and tight in the pre-event social media posts, but it was larger in the flesh than expected and proved to be a very good battle ground for extremely tight racing with few overtaking opportunities. The artificial grass circuit was quite “3D” and had a very good range of jump styles including an undulating back straight which was elevated nearly a metre above ground level. Many of the drivers who initially thought the track was too small and too tight later reported that the track flowed extremely well and had a great range of features, and, in fact, it was quite adequate for an EOS event – lots of happy racers.

Jorn Neumann triples at 2020 EOS Rd2

The 2nd round of the 2020 Euro Offroad Series was held last weekend at the Arena33’s new astro track in Andernach, Germany. With a massive gap between this and the opening round back in February, for a lot of drivers this was their first major event back racing after the Covid-19 lockdowns. In 2wd, Bruno Coelho mastered the tricky conditions to take the TQ spot for Xray, ahead of Jorn Neumann with his Schumacher in 2nd. An impressive run by Czech Xray driver Max Gotzl saw him line up in 3rd ahead of Marcel Schneider, Martin Bayer, Hupo Honigl and round 1 winner Michal Orlowski in 7th, the Polish driver feeling under the weather all weekend. At the end of the mains it would be Jorn Neumann, with wins in A2 and A3, that took the overall victory in front of Max Gotzl as Bruno Coelho who won A1 struggled in the remaining finals and could only manage 3rd overall.

Neumann wins but Coelho is EOS Champion

Joern Neumann has made it back to back wins in the EOS taking the 4WD win today in Austria in A2, but the biggest prize goes to Bruno Coelho as he wraps up the season with the 4WD Championship title.  Having taken the TQ and then the A1 win after an exciting battle with Coelho, Neumann had a much easier A2 after an early mistake from the number 2 starter that effectively dropped him to last.  With Coelho out of the equation, Neumann was chased by his team-mate Michal Orlowski.  Needing to win today to retain his 4WD title, a mistake from the 2WD Champion on the penultimate lap allowed Neumann to cruise to the finish for the overall win on the championship’s first visit ERT Steyregg.  The result also meant that irrespective of the A3 outcome, Coelho was champion again for a third time and Orlowski’s quest for a repeat title double where over.  With a rain shower that arrived during the third B-Main delaying A3, the astro surface meaning the track was ready to go back racing once the rain had passed, Coelho went on to cap off his title winning season with the win over Orlowski.  Overall this meant Coelho split the Schumacher drivers to claim 2nd on the podium.

Neumann wins exciting A1 in Austria

Joern Neumann has won an exciting opening A1 at the EOS Season Finale in Austria.  Starting from the TQ, the Schumacher driver was under intense pressure from Bruno Coelho off the start, leading to a mistake from the German midway through the race that let the Xray driver through.  Once in front however, it was Coelho’s turn to face the pressure as Neumann came back at him forcing him into also making a mistake. While Neumann would get caught up in that mistake, he came out of it in the lead which he would hold on to until the finish. Joona Haatanen would also get by Coelho but they quickly touched and Coelho had to wait to let the Associated driver through which dropped them both one position.  Unfortunately for Haatanen he would make mid air contact with Hupo Honigl and drop from 2nd to fourth on the last lap while Coelho went from P5 to second.  Putting in a clean race, Schumacher’s Wesley van Helmond would come through from 6th to complete the Top 3 with his team-mate Michal Orlowski continuing to have a tough time as having made his way up to 2nd had a mistake and ended up 6th.

Neumann takes overall TQ at EOS Austria

For the second race in succession it is Joern Nuemann who is the 4WD Top Qualifier at the Euro Offroad Series. The Schumacher driver secured the TQ from title favourite Bruno Coelho in the final round of qualifying in Austria with the Q4 time giving the German pole on the the tie break by 3/100ths of a second.  Coelho would end up qualifying with a P4 run after mistakes in the second half.  Behind the two former champions it will be Joona Haatanen who will start third on the grid.  The Team Associated driver enjoyed his best run in Q4 to set the second fastest time ahead of Schumacher’s Wesley van Helmond.  With Hupo Honigl lining up 4th on the grid, reigning champion Michal Orlowski will have his work cut on to retain his title from 5th on the grid, the Schumacher driver needing the win to take the championship.

Neumann takes Q2 at EOS Austria

Joern Neumann has TQ’d the second round of 4WD qualifying at EOS Austria, the Schumacher driver quickest from Q1 winner Bruno Coelho by 9/10th at ERT Steyregg.  Returning to his former championship winning form at the previous round of the championship at Arena 33 where he took the TQ & Win, Neumann took over the TQ pace in the later half of the run helped by a bad lap from Coelho and a fastest lap time that was 2/10ths faster than that of the championship leader.  Both factory Schumacher drivers would show great pace with Orlowski setting an almost identical fastest lap time to his team-mate but much earlier in the heat, before a mistake resulted in the Pole retiring after he popped a rear ball cup.  Also showing very strongly in the early part of the qualifier, Joona Haatanen would finish with some difficult laps but his early pace meant he would still stop the clock with the 3rd fastest time.

Coelho gets 4WD underway at EOS with TQ run

Having dominated yesterday’s 2WD qualifying, taking all four rounds, Bruno Coelho has got 4WD underway at the EOS Season Finale in Austria with a TQ run.  Setting the pace in practice, the championship leader topped the times from Round 5 winner Joern Neumann by 1.2-seconds with 2WD podium finish Hupo Honigl completing the Top 3.  With the  astro turf track getting drier and drier each run after over night rain all drivers reported Q1 conditions as tricky.  The only driver who can challenge Coelho for the 4WD title, reigning champion Michal Orlowski set the fourth fastest time with Joona Haatanen opening qualifying with a P5.
