Horn wins Austrian Onroad Nats Rd.1


Austrian Onroad Nats

The first round of the Austrian Electric Onroad Nationals was held at the beautiful track of 1. MRC Wiener Neustadt in Lower Austria. Unfortunately due to bad weather conditions the race had to be stopped during the second leg of the Touring Car Modified class.


In Touring Car Stock there was a close race between Jürgen Horn and Martin Szunyogh. Whilst Q1 to Q3 brought Jürgen a solid TQ, Martin set the fastest qualification time in Q4. Obviously Martin’s car seemed to perform better as the track temperature increased. Third on the grid was last year’s vice champion Christian Schiff. In the finals the weather was getting colder and so it was Jürgen Horn who dominated the mains and he took an easy win followed by Martin Szunyogh and Jürgen Linsberger, who managed to grab 3rd position starting from 6th on the grid.

Touring Car Stock final result:

  1. Jürgen Horn
  2. Martin Szunyogh
  3. Jürgen Linsberger
  4. Christian Schiff
  5. Marcus Helmecke

In the World GT race at the Austrian Nationals, the TQ spot went to Andreas Wirl followed by Martin Holzeis and Christian Machalik. After two exciting finals, Andreas was able to set the fastest final time and to win this round while Martin was on the runner up spot followed by Christian.
