Race report by Dotan Halevy
Round 4 of the Israeli National League was an interesting race day. We had just returned from the World Championship in Thailand with new energy, and I was very excited about the race. The weather forecast wasn’t good and there was chance of rain. As I arrived at the "[email protected]" track it looked like the soil was already quite wet. Anyway the day began and qualifying was started. The first round was okay for me so I used the next rounds for some testing; I ended up 2nd overall with a 1 second margin from TQ (Yaniv Sivan).

Adir Zvuluny also had good qualifying and ended up 4th, also after having some tests over qualifying.
In the Truggy class Ofer Rozen had good results - he was 3rd after qualifying – and Hovav Siboni was 6th by a small margin. In the Truggy final, Ofer had the pace for a podium finish but repeated engine failures prevented this and he fell back to 6th place.

As for me and Adir in the Buggy class, the semi-final was nothing special and the starting order for the final stayed the same as the qualifying. After the final started the first 2 laps was quite intense. After that I settled into the lead with Yaniv (kyosho) only 2 seconds behind me and Adir not far behind him. This order stayed the same until the fuel stops started and from there we started swapping places between the three of us. At 5 minutes to finish Yaniv made some mistakes, so Adir and I had a safe gap from him while Adir was on my tail until he had to stop for fuel… this gave me a safe gap for the lead. Adir came out from the pits just behind Yaniv and passed him on the final lap.
At the end of this very intense race I finished 1st and Adir finished 2nd, making it 1-2 for Team XRAY Isarel!
