Race report by Kája Novotný
The third round of XRAY Racing Series Slovakia took place last weekend in Hudy Arena. As always whole area was prepared perfectly and everything was promising a nice weekend of racing.

In 2wd qualifications, it was Martin Bayer who took pretty easy TQ with Max Gotzl in 2nd after great run in Q3 and for me “was left” 3rd place on the grid.
4wd was a bit different story with Martin and me switching lead multiple times in each qualification and eventually it was Martin who took overall TQ! Few seconds back each run was another duo of Adam Izsay and Max Gotzl fighting for 3rd place and in the end Adam took it.
In Truck class Martin was on another level and took his third TQ of the day with my XT2 on 2nd place and Max Gotzl starting 3rd!

In 2wd A1, Martin pulled away quickly, but then made two mistakes which gave me the lead as I managed to get by Max and eventually take the win. I A2 Martin put down flawless run and took the win with me again 2nd and Max 3rd! In A3, both Martin and me kept basically same distance between us whole 5 minute and Martin brought home the win!

Pretty much copy of 2wd A1 was in 4wd as Martin and me kept the same starting distance between us whole run and just one mistake decided and my Hobbywing powered XB4 took the win! In A2, everything was looking for another good fight, but then I made huge mistake and fell down to 5th place and only managed to get 3rd with Martin 1st and Adam Izsay 2nd! Unfortunate DNS in A3, meant that I finished overall 2nd and Adam Izsay completed TOP 3!
