I'm just back from the track and have some pictures with me.
But perhaps some of you are also interested in the things that happened at the track.
First -and most important- thing is that the race is cancelled because of too much rain. The results of the heats wwer taken and counted as the official race result. Some of the guys of the Warm Up wanted to race (Anderson, Myrberg, Wilck, Groskamp had already prepared their rain cars).
The result is:
Kramer, Michael Xray T2
Myrberg, Andreas Xray T2
Groskamp, Jilles Xray T2
Hoppe, Lars Corally RDX
Unfortunately I can't remember the rest of the A-Final. Sorry... But this is because of some major problems with the lap counting system. They used the new "Aebi" software... and to be honest it didn't work at all. This is the only thing that didn't work at this weekend.
Everything else was nearly perfect. Toilets were clean, food was very good, track was perfect.
The result of the regionals that took place at the same weekend is:
Martin Hudy Xray T2
Bernhard Bopp Hotbodies Cyclone
Alexander Stocker Xray T2
Patrick Reich Schumacher MI2 EC
Mario DiMichele Hotbodies Cyclone
Adi Langenegger Yokomo BD
Perhaps something about the Brushless vs. Brushed discussion:
Ralf Helbing, developer for GM-Racing, was there to support everyone with a GM brushless system. The fastest guys with GM BL's were Alexander Stocker, Michael Kramer, Christian Geier, Daniel Wohlgemuth.
Andy Krämer for LRP was there to test new motors with Bernhard Bopp, Daniel Sieber, an Austrian and also at least one Xray driver had the system in their cars.
Also Orion motor man Oscar Jansen was there at Saturday and their BL system seems to be a mix of a GM ESC and a LRP motor. Their system was ran by Victor Wilck and Joel Myrberg. But both of them switched back to brushed motors.
Perhaps something about the heats. Unfortunately I can only write something about the first group because I drove in the 3rd group and had to prepare my car after watching the first group:
The first heat was very funny because the only one who finished was Jilles Groskamp.
Juray Hudy crashed with Joel Myrberg and the rest of the field dumped with the exception of Christian Kaltenmesser who had trouble with his rear differential.
The second and third heat seemed to be fine for everybody.
After the 3rd heat of group 4 it started to rain and noone drover the last heat on Saturday of group one. Noone? No.. Joel Myrberg pushed his car around the track and seemed to be very fast. The only comment of Alexander Stocker about this was "Hudy Luxury 1/10 PowerBoat".
After the heats on Saturday the weather was amazing and me and 2 other guys practiced until 10 o'clock PM.
On Sunday morning the weather was nice but a bit cloudy. Right in time for the first heat it started to rain. And it didn't stop...
After the decision was made to cancel the race I tested my rain car and it was pretty dialed...
Joel Myrberg was on the track aswell and seemed to have real fun driving through the water.
