Round 2 of the Euro Offroad Series brings the growing series to an all new location after the very small MSV06 club rose to the challenge when asked late last year by series organiser Uwe Rheinard if they thought a venue to bring the EOS to the capital city of Berlin could be found. Consisting of a mere 8 members, the club made inquiries with city officials. Keen to support an event that would bring international visitors to the city, over 20 nationalities represented this weekend, they gave approval to the club to use a sports hall next to their onroad track which is located outside in the carpark area. Located in the city borough of Lichterfelde, together with support from other clubs in the area the hall has been converted into one of the best looking temporary indoor offroad tracks the series has seen yet.
Having being used to build part of the track used at the opening round of the series in Poland, here the track is completely built using the new PVC construction modular system from Polish company AzetX. This has been possible thanks to the addition of new bendable sections for making curved corners. Experienced at using the click together track, having worked with it on a number of events in Poland, EOS Round 1 hosts ATA provided the man power for the building of the track yesterday. With the EOS organised by the same people who put on the ETS, they have just confirmed that they have purchased a complete AzetX set-up for use at all future indoor events for the touring car series.
In terms of the track to drive on Race Director Scotty Ernst described the layout, which features a crossover and a wall section, as difficult and technical adding that it is ‘very easy to overdrive’. In terms of lap times a fast one for 2WD Buggy will be around the 21-second mark.
