In practice it was mainly affair between Martin Bayer and Michal Orlowski in both 2wd and 4wd buggy. Michal came on top in 2wd practice, while in 4wd it was eventually my Hobbywing powered XB4 which set the fastest time over 3 laps in final practice round.
In 2wd qualifications, it was TOP 3 of Bayer, Orlowski and me fighting closely for overall TQ and in the end Michal took it! Martin finished 2nd and I took 3rd place!
In 4wd class the same 3 drivers fought for TQ, but this time Martin Â´s flawless run in Q2 secured him overall TQ with me in 2nd place and Michal 3rd!

In 2wd finals, Michal pulled away in A1, while Martin and me fought for 2nd place and in the end it was my XB2, which crossed the line on the 2nd place. In A2, both Michal and Martin crashed in opening lap so I was given first place, but Martin made it quickly back to 2nd place and started to close the gap, but ran out of time and I took the win. In A3 I did way too many errors, while Martin and Michal had another epic battle for the lead, but in the end Michal won, congrats!

In 4wd finals, Martin pulled away from the field quickly and took the win! Michal finished 2nd and I made it back on 3rd place after horrible first lap. In A2, Martin and I managed to pull away, but I never made it close enough to make the pass and Martin took well deserved win, congratulations!
In the last final Martin sat out so it was fight between Michal and me for the 2nd place overall! We had a good fight in first 2 minutes, but then Michal did few mistakes and I could pull away! Adam Izsay and Michal then showed great fight for the 2nd place and in the last lap Michal got past Adam and finished 2nd!
