Report by Martin Bayer
After longer Covid brake very famous XRS series in Hudy Arena was back.
Traditional race format with practice on Friday and race on Sunday gives everyone a lot track time and prepare for race.

On Friday I try to find best setup for my XB2 and XB4. I know it will be very difficult to fight for top spot. I was focusing on finding car setup to make both cars easy to drive. As I know 5 min without mistake is always fastest.

On Saturday morning my first run was no perfect so I lost first run in 2WD but since then I find my pace back and TQ rest of runs.
So I secure overall TQ and start from pole. Finals has been quit aggressive us many drivers want to win.

I push very hard since first corner to extend gap and manage lead until end of run.
No mistakes and consistent driving bring me home double WIN.
Thanks to all my sponsors for supporting me.
