Berlin to host EOS Round 2

EOSLogo1

The Euro Offroad Series is pleased to confirm that Round 2 of its championship for 1:10 Electric Offroad will take place in the German capital city of Berlin over the weekend of January 17-19.  After a very successful start to the third season of the EOS in Poland just two weeks ago, the opportunity to stage the second event on the four round 2013/14 calendar was only officially given the green light by the local government authorities yesterday evening.

Commenting on the news, Euro Offroad Series Race Director Scotty Ernst said, ‘We are really excited about being able to bring the EOS to Berlin and are very thankful to the local government for giving the MSV 06 club the go ahead to put on the event.  After the positive start to the season at the Hobby Show in Poznan which was attended by over 40,000 people I think the opportunity to race in Germany’s capital city will be another exciting experience for our racers and sponsors.’

Attracting backing from offroad racing’s biggest brands, with Team Associated, Kyosho, Xray, Team Durango, Horizon Hobby and Pro-Line equal primary sponsors of the series, securing the Berlin date makes Germany the only country to have hosted a round of the EOS each season since its inception in 2011.  After the trip to Berlin, Round 3 of the series will take racers to Austria while the season finale will take place in Slovakia at the world class Hudy Arena.

Neumann maintains EOS winning record

sun_jorn4wd copia

Joern Neumann pulled off an impressive feat at the opening round of the Euro Offroad Series in Poland taking the overall 4WD Buggy win to maintain his unbeaten run of consecutive victories.  The third season of the indoor series for 1:10 electric offroad, the Durango driver claimed win number 8 by backing up his Leg 1 win in the second A-Main but unlike the first 5-minute encounter he didn’t have it easy. Team Xray’s Renaud Savoya mounted a serious last lap challenge on the German but unfortunately for the French ace he would over jump the double just before the finish line.  Sending his XB4 into the barrier it allowed Neumann to take the leg by 1.8 seconds. With Hupo Honigl, who was running on Savoya’s rear gearbox, spectacularly cartwheeling out of third on the last lap Martin Bayer completed the Top 3.

Commenting on his impressive tally of wins, Neumann said this was by far the hardest one yet.  Struggling to get to terms with this season’s new controlled tyre from Proline, the German was unable to dominate the class as he has done for the past two seasons.  Pleased to get his title defense off to the perfect start, claiming the extra championship point for taking the TQ honours for the race, he said the level of competitions is also a lot tougher this season.

With Neumann able to sit out the third Main, it was a straight race to see who would stand either side of him on the podium.  With the No.1 Durango missing from the grid, it was Bayer who would effectively start from pole position.  The European Champion would lead from the start and after seeing off the attention of Honigl, who like in A1 again crashed in front of the drivers stand while challenging for the lead, would take a relatively easy win over team-mate Savoya.  The Xray 1-2 finish ahead of Kyosho’s David Ronnefalk would see the pair secure the remaining podium places.  Bayer’s second time to finish runner-up, for Savoya the result marks the relative newcomer to electric offroad’s first EOS podium.

Having topped the podium in 2WD, Honigl would not make it in 4WD finishing 4th overall ahead of Ronnefalk and fellow 2WD podium finisher Michal Orlowski.

Elsewhere Neumann made it a doubly successful weekend taking the win in 4WD Short Course ahead of Honigl and young Czech driver Kaja Novotny for the second all Durango podium of the weekend.  It was a clean sweep of wins for Team Durango in Poland with German driver Mirko Morgenstern taking the win in 2WD Short Course ahead of Denmark’s Torben Hojfeldt and Sascha Hengen.

Neumann takes easy 4WD win in A1

sun_jorn

Defending Champion Joern Neumann took an easy win in the opening leg of the 4WD Buggy A-Mains at the Euro Offroad Series in Poland. The Top Qualifier led from start to finish despite a mistake first time through the double to head home Durango team-mate Hupo Hönigl by 4-seconds.  Xray’s Martin Bayer who started second came off worst of Neumann’s moment as he hit the out of shape German and fell back to fifth.  Recovering to pass both team-mate Renaud Savoya and Tom Cockerill, the Czech driver would finish third.

Looking to maintain his 100% winning record in 4WD Buggy in the EOS and claim an 8th consecutive win, Neumann was pleased to get the win adding that his team-mate Honigl was ‘very quick’.  Decribing his Orion powered DEX410 as edgy for the first part of the race and then suffering understeer in the second half, he said it was tricky to drive but looking to Leg 2 he said it is ‘manageable’.

Setting the fastest lap of the race, Honigl pushed Neumann hard at the start until a mistake on lap 6 ended his challenge for the win.  The winner of 2WD earlier in the day, he said had a buggy and was comfortable putting pressure on the 4WD World Champion Top Qualifier.  Losing 2-seconds due to his mistake in front of the drivers stand, in which Savoya got caught up, Honigl said the one mistake cost him a chance of winning and with time running out he decided to settle for second.

Bayer said he was ‘just out of luck this time’.  After getting baulked by Neumann’s buggy on the first lap, the European Champion lost further time when he tangled with his team-mate Savoya.  After this he said it was too late to do anything about Neumann.  Bayer was very happy with his XB4’s performance adding that with more luck in A2 he is confident he can challenge Neumann for the win.

Finishing fourth just in front of Michal Orlowski, Savoya said he struggled with his XB4’s handling. Describing it as edgy he said he couldn’t find his rhythm in the race.
