After lap 13 Volker's car instantly fell off almost 5 tenths!!! Not sure what happened, but it did make him easy prey for Viljami.

Check out the timing sheet. It's under Final A - Final Run 2.

Having dominated A1, the second encounter was not as straight forward for the German ace who had to battle with a damaged car and see off a challenge from fast Finn Viljami Kutvonen. Looking comfortable for the win as the race entered the second half Volkerís new DB7 2014 edition collected the Serpent of David Ehrbar when after an off track excursion it was being place back on the track by the marshal. Damaging the body of the No.1 car, Volkerís pace dropped as he struggled with his front tyre rubbing badly through left hand corners. Making his first attack Kutvonen was clearly now faster but just as he looked like making a pass for the lead entering the straight he rolled his Awesomatix. Dropping back he quickly closed down the gap again but trying a pass on the final lap he touched the Yokomo sending it into a roll for which he waited allowing Volker to complete the final corner in front for the leg & overall win.

Awwwwwsome work fellaz! Congrats!

Any vids posted on the 17.5 races? (its what I race)

I've been highly encouraged from Austin B. to make the leap. I've recently just finished this entire forum....(great team work here) and it took a while. But I should have my A700L here this next week! So you will be seeing a lot more of me in here. Again, congrats at the DHI Cup!

Yep, I'll get one tonight.

Volker's car being broken makes a lot more sense.

Congratulations to Viljami. Very close. I think we might see a win for Awesomatix at the ETS this year.

Dont forget Oliver Franke took the tq + win in 13.5

2014 started out nicely. End of month with ETS and Snowbirds... There are more opportunities for success..
