Default Xray dominates Mod TC, Stock TC and Formula One at 2014 ETS

History was made in the town of Muelheim-Kaerlich, Germany on the weekend of February 1-2, 2014. For the first time since ETS started one manufacturer, Xray, dominated all 3 classes; Modified TC won by Alexander Hagberg (Xray T4 '14), Pro Stock TC won by Marek Cerny (Xray T4 '14) and Formula One was won by Jan Ratheisky with the prototype Xray Formula One.

I can't wait to see Xray's Formula One up close.

Impressive results for Xray. I wonder how the T4 will do as ETS series heads to outdoor venues and if Hagberg will be able to turn this into confidence for the upcoming Worlds later this year.
I am also looking forward to the Xray F1.

Does anybody know the ratio of XRAY cars compared to other manufacturers? Just wondering if there were my more or less XRAY cars compared to other brands. Solid result nevertheless.

Same weird carpet they test on at their facility. Congrats on the results either way, that's quite an accomplishment.

A casual glance would suggest the biggest are Yokomo, Xray and Tamiya, with Awesomatix and Serpent just below.

I think Yokomo has the largest number of cars in there.

Only see two Associated's

All black carpet which apparently had characteristics odd enough that Ronald lost his first race on carpet since the 16th century. Go watch the videos, the cars look broken.

It will be interesting to see how Hagberg goes at TITC which is on Asphalt in a couple of weeks, comparing to his awesome ETS performance on carpet. That maybe a telltale sign for the outdoor series...

Will definitely be interesting, although Hagbergs Xray was faster at the Europeon championships (he came 2nd to Volker) and he qualified 2nd at round 1 of the ETS

Gran Canaria should be a good test, sounds like more of a UK style track with lower grip. Might give us some ideas for an outdoor setup.

From what the UK guys said from last time they were there, there is even less grip than we are used to . The sand and dust from the beach blows over the track.
