Martin Kriel – 10th Buggy Euros Warmup report @ Pau

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 9:44 pm

Austrian Team Durango star driver Martin Kriel reports on his experiences at last weekends ‘Euros Warmup’ event in Pau, France.


The track was very big with a clay surface, a wood-table, a carpet quad jump and some up and down sections.

2wd: 48 attended drivers.
I ran this version of the DEX210 prototype for the first time after receiving it in the week before the event. The car felt better and better from run to run. After the two practice rounds the qualification started. In the first two qualification rounds I ran the Caliber M3 and in round 3 and 4 I changed to Caliber M4. I changed also the  linkages to make the car easier to drive over the holes, which came out during the runs. I found myself on 15th overall position after the qualification. In the end of the day I finished 11th.

Hupo was the guy to beat, he dominated from the first practice run, he won all qualifiers and all finals.

4wd: 55 attended drivers
my car felt very good and I tested some different linkages and damper positions. After the qualification I was in 5th position. We had 4 dex410 in the first 5 positions, which showed the domination of that car. The overall standings was:

1st: Hupo (He dominated the same way as in 2wd)
2nd: Cyrille Baldini (French champion)
3rd: myself

We stayed two more days in france to test some things. On Monday we had sunny weather and practiced the whole day. On Tuesday it rained the whole day!
