Q2 Update – Bayer holds overnight TQ

Martin Bayer holds the overnight TQ at the Hudy Arena after the Xray driver ended Day 2 of the Euro Offroad Series third round with a TQ run. Having battled with team-mate Bruno Coelho for the TQ in the opening 4WD qualifier, Bayer would get it done in the second round despite a third lap error to head another another Xray 1-2 this time ahead of Hupo Honigl.  With Coelho’s run full of errors, leaving him 9th, the second qualifier wasn’t the same strong dominance shown in Q1 with both Yokomo’s Lee Martin and Schumacher’s Michal Orlowski challenging for the TQ.  While Orlowski would drop out of contention with a big mistakes ending up 6th, Martin’s challenge was hampered by traffic as he got stuck behind Kája Novotný.  Improving his car through a slipper adjustment while the car still lacked the grunt he was looking for Martin was encouraged by the improved performance ahead of tomorrow’s remaining two qualifiers.  Behind Martin, former Champion Joern Neumann would post the fourth fastest time, the Serpent driver having a good run despite running in the second fastest heat.  Behind Neumann, Novotný would complete the Top 5.
