Hupo wins indoor Motor Show race, Wels Austria

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 3:42 pm

The race was held on a big Motor Show in Wels / Upper-Austria, it is always a good race, because there are thousands of spactators and the track is very special every year!  Hupo reports:

This year we raced on polished asphalt with 20% carpet and wooden jumps – this means you are close to a touring car setup; the traction was crazy high and cars wanted to flip over everywhere; My car was very good from practise number one – I just fine tuned the setup and concentrated on tires;  We used Diesel to make the tires softer. Number one choice in the end was Proline Holeshot M3 Semi-Slick for most of the drivers. I was quickest in every practise, so I did not change the car for qualifying; In qualifying I had terrible traffic all the time – which cost me a lot of time in every qualifyer; I ended up only 3rd, which was very disappointing!

In my Semi same thing again – my car was fast, but maximum traffic – I had to start from the number 2 spot in the final.

In the final got taken out at the start and had to go through almost the complete field – after a couple of minutes i could catch the leader, overtake him and extended the lead to over a lap in the end.
