Hoppe wins North German Championship Rd2

“One week ago the 2nd round of the North German Championship took place in Tüttendorf near Kiel in the very north of Germany. Team Shepherd driver Lars Hoppe claimed the TQ setting the fastest 3 consecutive laps with his Novarossi powered Velox V8 ’11 in qualifying ( 35,603 sec) followed by Serpent driver Jens Stark ( 36,439 sec), Shepherds Timo Schröder (36,601 sec) and Merlin Depta ( Serpent – 36,732). In the following semi final Hoppe defended his first place and finished 3 laps in front of Timo Schröder. The 30 minutes main final saw a clear start with Hoppe pulling away from the rest of the field. Unchallenged he crossed the finishing line in first position 6 laps in front of Marcel Henriksen (Kyosho) in second and Marcell Sledz (Serpent) in 3rd position. Timo Schröder on 4th place was a litte bit unlucky as a collision with another car damage his tyres and he had to spend some extra time in the pitlane.”
