Race Report by Beat Wälti
Saturday morning saw the track fill up with drivers keen to get in some practice. The circuit had been treated with sugar water, which meant it had fantastic grip right from the first lap. It quickly became clear that the lap record from last year would not stand for long. At 4:00PM, practice started in groups and the lap times were recorded.

I would like to thank the Langenthal Racing Club for the brilliantly-organized event. Thanks also to my mechanic Guido for the quick fuel stops and his help over the entire weekend, and of course to HUDY, XRAY, T&M Models for their support.

Cheers, and until next time!
