In the practice rounds we tried different setups to get a good pace for the low to medium grip conditions of the technical indoor track.
After a couple of setup changes we were on pace and very happy with the feeling of our cars (XB2 2017, XB4 2017, XT2).
Nico Schmid managed to qualify in second place 2WD and 4WD while his brother Florian was in 3th place 2WD and 5th place 4WD. Philip Jeisy managed to TQ every run in the Truck class.
In 2WD the pole man Patrick Hofer managed to win the first two finals in front of Nico Schmid. Overall Nico reached a good second position in front of Philipp Huber in third place.
4WD was the same as 2WD: Patrick Hofer won the first two finals in front of Nico. It was a close battle with good fights. Florian Schmid completed the podium with a great third place. He could extremely increase his pace in the finales so he made no mistakes. Well-deserved mate!
As in the practice runs the XT2 worked great in every final so Philip Jeisy could finish the first Swiss Championship round on the top of the podium!
It was a great weekend with exciting racing action and good friends (Donâ™t forget the world famous âžSchnitzel-bread" of the HVBRS :-))
See you at the next Championship Round in Horgen. Itâ™s time for some dirt!
