The forth round of the Austrian electric off-road nationals took place at the race track in Krieglach. 36 drivers in 2WD and 28 entries in 4WD tried to tackle the dusty clay track that got better during the practice heats but soon suffered from becoming bumpy.
One or the other driver tried to adapt mid motor buggies in 2WD one of which was Team Durango’s Hupo Hönigl but as the tricky surface made the cars difficult to drive and since they needed a different racing line than conventional rear motor buggies most of the drivers came back to mid motor machines for the qualifiers and finals. Sunday Morning started with four rounds of qualifying and when the dust settled the Team Durango duo of Hupo Hönigl and Martin Kreil lead in 2WD with equal points, but a faster time gave Hupo the TQ spot. 3rd and 4th went to the Team Associated duo Pinisch/Pfeifhofer, also equal in points with the better end for Peter Pinisch. In 4WD Hupo took 3 out of 4 rounds, taking the TQ in front of Yokomo’s René Trauner and Stefan Pfeifhofer (Team Associated) with Martin Kreil in 4th and Pinisch in 5th.
