Round 1 of the Austrian 1/10 Offroad Nationals took place recently at SMRC Vienna. Racers were greeted with a slippery, bumpy, dusty, and tricky track layout to maneuver. Serpent’s Hupo Honigl set himself on top the field in both 2wd and 4wd buggy classes throughout qualifying, scoring a double TQ. Local racer, Christian Lanzl, showed Honigl a wheel or two in the finals, however, was unable to defeat him. Hupo walked away the winner of both 2wd and 4wd buggy classes, kicking off the National Series with the points lead.
