Mustafa Alp sweep Turkish Onroad Champs Rd3

284

Round three of the TORC Nationals was held in Efmod track. Everything was great except the very hot weather and windy conditions which challenged the cars and the drivers. XRAY driver Mustafa Alp was able to TQ both Nitro Touring and EP Prostock classes. Mustafa took the victory by taking the first two finals. The battle was for second position between young XRAY drivers Ahmet and Poyraz. In first two finals, Poyraz had the upper hand with fresher tyres. He started from 3rd on the grid and put great pressure on Ahmet but with older tyres, Ahmet could not defend his second position. As Mustafa didn’t run in A3, they battled it out and Ahmet, in a greater shape, took the win. Poyraz had to settle in third position on the podium.

In nitro touring Mustafa led the 45 minute final from the start. He had only small problems being a flame out in tyre change. Again, the battle for the second position was very thrilling between Onur Vardar and Halit Körpe, after Onur recovered by a flame out at the beginning of the race. 3 laps to go he overtook Halit and claimed second place. Seperation between the two was only 0.9 seconds.
