The fourth and for this winter last Indoor Bike Park GP was held on the 12th of March. The track was in excellent shape with some colourful new carpet and nice new banners and the team of the IBP once again made a great event possible.

For this race I quickly and easily converted my XB8E'16 with the front and rear axle and middle diff of my new nitro XB8 '17 and made it a XB8E '17. After some practice on Saturday the car already felt very good. The track is always drying up and changing throughout the day and this makes it challenging even though otherwise it doesn't wear at all or develop holes. The lap times drop a little at every race it seems and this time I felt that AKA Typo Clay worked the best and I ran the whole race with the same set.

On the XB4 I didn't have to change a single thing, not even new tyres. It handled brilliantly as it had at the last race where I came second. After the three qualification rounds I managed to TQ both categories.

After some amazing finals (see videos) and close fights with Daniel Caviezel, Pascal Jutz, Romeo Grass and Kevin Zwahlen I managed to win both categories and get my first ever race victory in 4WD I think. In 1/8E my teammate Romeo Grass came second. With three victories in 1/8,one in 4WD and two podiums out of four races I also won the 8E and 4WD IBP championships. I got a very nice trophy with my name engraved on it.
