Race Report by Anke Muller
From the 12th to the 13th of January the XRAY Racing Series Germany stopped for the first time in the RC Land in Heilbronn for the 3rd race of the XRS season.
Already on Saturday, the participants were able to train extensively, because the people in charge opened the track earlier. The paddock was already well filled on Saturday. No wonder, the race day was booked up to the last starting position. After the obligatory driver briefing, the heats could start on Sunday morning. During the lunch break, the drivers were able to provide themselves with delicious food and snacks in the trackside cafeteria before they went to the finals.

In Stock, the field was dominated by Tom Haake from the first heat to the final run. Despite some explosive situations in the finals, Tom was able to prevail in all finals and drove a safe victory. It became all the more exciting behind it. Marc Stübben, Jens Haller and Philipp Kremer fought for the podium. After three thrilling finals, it was Marc Stübben on P2 and Philipp Kremer on P3, who followed Tom on the podium. The B-Final was won by Jörg Baldes, who only made his way from the distant Nürburgring in the morning.
