Qualifying underway in Daun
After the three rounds of practice, it got even more intense during the first round of qualifying. In our report we will inform you quickly about the results of each of the 2WD classes here at EOS RD3.
2WD Modified Buggy
Champlin takes opening 2WD qualifier in Daun
I The first 2WD qualifier was a very close affair until most of the drivers started to make some small mistakes during the run. Schumachers Broc Champlin (USA) took full advantage out of that as he was the only driver laying down a clean run with his LRP powered buggy. He only posted the seventh fastest lap of the race (17.645), but his concistency was the way to victory. After five minutes, his advantage over second placed teammate Lee Martin was about 3.6 seconds. A great start for Champlin into his first ever EOS event. Behind Champlin and Martin, Micha Widmaier, Bartosz Zalewski, and Martin Bayer completed the top 5.
“I am happy with my first qualifying run. The track is a lot of fun, and I just tried to make no mistakes which worked well until the end. Compared to the tracks we have in the US, this one here has way more traction and you need to stay in a good flow all the time. My car felt good and I will try to repeat my run in the second round where I hope to also benefit from starting first. Everybody is on a very similar pace and I expect a close next race!2
