Last weekend we drove the last MIO race. In the qualifications I finished 2nd, 7nd and 1st and that gave me the second spot in the A final. I wasn’t happy with the setup of my car and changed my shock oil and we placed 3 dot springs on the rear, this made my car a lot better, the car was very fast and I was very happy.
The 1st final I finished in 1st place after a tough race with Oliver Speith, in the last round Oliver and I crashed in to each other on a jump. But my car was a little bit earlier back on its wheels.
In the 2nd final I finished 2nd behind Oliver Speith. So the 3rd final was very important, I had to finish in front of Oliver but I pushed too much and crashed 2 times. With my second place overall and a day time record of 19,305 I was very happy. Overall I finished the winter cup at the 4th place.
My next race is the EOS Germany and this would be also the last race with 1:10 car this season, because the outdoor season starts with the 1:8 nitro, and I can’t wait for the new XRAY XB8 .
