McBest Series Rd9 & 10 report


Last weekend the last two rounds of the McBest racing series were held at the narrow track of MRG Dogern, Switzerland. The situation in the championships appeared as follows: in 1/10 Marco Schwab, Dominik Denoth and Stefan Wüthrich were equal on points. In 1/8 Martin Wenger needed only one good result to drive home his victory in the overall ranking. Beat Heiniger and Stefan Graber fought for 2nd place.

Saturday was held the ninth round. The track was wet and the tyre choice was a hard because the conditions kept changing. Handling the wet track best were XRAY drivers Roland Fankhauser, Martin Wenger and Beat Heiniger. Roland took the victory in the 1/10 class.

Stefan Wüthrich unfortunately lost a lot of time when a tyre left its rim while he was leading the race. In 1/8, thanks to his result in the final, Martin Wenger managed to keep his title.

On Sunday, for the tenth round the track dried until midday. After 3 seasons of 1/10 Patrick Fankhauser wanted to gain his first experiences in 1/8. Martin Wenger provided him his rain car. Martin Wenger prepared it perfectly for every heat. Patrick won its very first race in 1/8 in front of his XRAY’s teammates Wenger and Heiniger.

In 1/10, after a failed start, Kevin Lehnherr cleaned up the field from behind and won in front another XRAY’s Marcel Knutti.
