Team Durango 1-2 in 8th German National Championship

Filed under: News — Stuart @ 3:44 pm

Last weekend we had the second and final round of German 1/8 Buggy Nationals. The race were held at the MAC Brombachsee club. The track was astroturf, with a mix of stone and a kind of plastic matts over dirt. I started with the same setup as I normally use, but after the first few practice runs it needed some changes. I made couple of changes to diff oil, swaybars, shock oil and springs. This made the car much better and easier to drive. In qualifying the grip came up and the car was easier to drive. I tried lowering the ride height and cutting the front tires. From now on the car was great and I was ale to set the fastest qualifying round in Q3. Overall I was 2nd just behind Daniel Reckwardt.

In the 20 minutes semi final Hupo and I bumped up to the final. Starting position 4 and 1st for the final. I had a very good start in the final and built a few seconds lead over Martin Bayer. We were on different fuel strategies and I had to pit one more time. Thats why I had to push hard to make enough gap to Martin. With some very fast and consistent laps I could win the 30 minutes final, 2nd Martin Bayer, 3rd Daniel Reckwardt and 4th teammate Hupo Hönigl.
