Q2 Update – Bayer heads another Xray 1-2 from Novotný


The second round of 4WD qualifying at Round 2 of the EOS in Poland produced another Xray 1-2 with Martin Bayer setting the fastest time from fellow Czech racer Kája Novotný.  Initially it was Q1 pace setter Bruno Coelho who started out front but the reigning champion was to suffer a steering servo failure, something he attributed to earlier crashes.  With Coelho out it would be Michal Orlowski, who had a mechanical issue in Q1, who would get to the top of the timing screen but a mistake followed quickly by a second would drop him back, allowing Bayer then to go to the front.  Orlowski was to fight back before more mistakes with Lee Martin also challenging the Xray team-manager but he would keep his composure as the only driver to run 17-laps.  Behind him, Novotný would get by Martin to claim an impressive P2 leaving the Yokomo driver to again finish third as the best non-Xray driver.  Hupo Hönigl would separate Martin and his team-mate Marc Rheinard with a P4 with Joel Valander completing the Top 6.
