Race report by Kája Novotný
The 5th and final round of Mibosport Cup took place last weekend in Hrotovice. Organisers prepared nice technical track with few quite challenging elements.

In 4wd, Martin was again the fastest for 5 minutes, but eventually it was my Hobbywing powered XB4 which topped timed practice (3 consecutive laps) with XB4s of Martin and Max in 2nd and 3rd!

In qualifications Martin set the fastest time in Q1, which nobody could beat in another two rounds and gained overall TQ! My TQ run in Q3 gave me 2nd place with Adam locking again TOP 3!

In finals Martin took dominant win in A1, while I took the win A2, so the last final was going to decide the podium. In A3, both me and Martin did mistake in the opening laps which gave the lead to Adam. Both of us then pushed hard to catch Adam and we did so in the last minute where after some incidents I was given the lead and crossed the line in 1st place!

As this was the final round of the series there was also the overall price giving ceremony. Missing one round due to WC in China, I had no spare race, but with 2 wins and 2 2nd places I took the title in both classes! In 2wd Ales Bidovsky took 2nd place overall with young Max Gotzl completing the podium! In 4wd, there was a tie for the 2nd place between Peter Loncsar and Adam Izsay with Peter coming out better!

In qualifications, both Martin and I had problems with traffic in Q1 and Max Gotzl TQed that run. However in Q2 and Q3 Martin set the fastest time with me in 2nd and Adam Izsay overall in 3rd!

In A1 Martin, me and Ales managed to get away from rest of the field and basically kept the same distance for whole 5 minutes. In A2, Martin and I again got away from the rest and had good battles for the 1st place, but one mistake from my side decided and Martin took well deserved win, congrats! In A3 I crashed in the first lap due to the car flying from other part of the track and had to work my way back to 2nd place with Martin taking easy win! Ales Bidovsky completed the podium after great fight with Adam Izsay in A3!
