Race report by Kája Novotný
The final round of Mibosport Cup series took place last weekend in Hrotovice - Czechia. Organizers prepared great off-road track for which I want to say big thanks – really challenging track!

The fastest guy on the track in 2wd practice was Hupo Honigl!

In 4wd it was my XB4´17 which was on fire and set the fastest three laps in timed practice!

In 2wd qualifications, Q1 basically decided starting order as there is limit of two sets per race and everyone used fresh set for Q1 and kept the 2nd set of tires for finals. Unfortunately, I made several mistakes in Q1 and couldn ´t get better times in Q2 and Q3 then my rivals and qualified 3rd! Well deserved TQ went to Hupo who TQed all three runs!!!

In 4wd my XB4´17 continued in great performance and set the fastest time in Q2 to take the overall TQ ahead of XB4s of Hupo Honigl, Max Gotzl and Ales Bidovsky!

In 2wd finals, Hupo took easy win in A1! In A2 I took the lead in the first lap, but in the end of the run Hupo made it back to the first place and took the overall win, congrats! In A3 my XB2 took the win with Max Gotzl in 2nd and Ales Bidovsky in 3rd!

4wd finals were the big show – the championship was going to be decided between Hupo and me! Unfortunately in A1, there was a big mess at the start and in the end Hupo took the win! In A2 both me and Hupo got away and had a nice battle until I made a mistake in 3rd minute, but got the lead back in the last lap and took the win! Last final of the last race was going to decide it – the way it should be! This time me, Hupo and Ales Bidovsky got away from the field and fought for the win! With 1 minute to go, Hupo made a great pass on me and took win, big congratulations!

As this was the last race of the series, there was the overall ceremony – Hupo Honigl won both 2wd and 4wd titles! I finished 2nd in both classes and Ales Bidovsky 3rd – TOP 3 for XRAY in both 2wd and 4wd!!!

In the end I want congratulate to Michal Bok for nice series of races, I enjoyed every race and I can´t wait for next Mibo already!

Big thanks to my parents and to all my sponsors for their great support!
