Austrian Nitro On-road Nats Rd2 report


Last weekend was held the third round for the Austrian Championship at the Morac Graz in Kirchberg an der Raab. After the qualification Michal Abrahamek took TQ with Leonardo Varga on 2nd and Franz Engel taking 3rd place on the grid.

After a clean start without clashes, the order remained unchanged until Michal made a mistake and needed marshalling. Leonardo took advantage of this mistake and improved his lead from the field. After a faultless ride from Leonardo, he finally won the race with 2 laps ahead of Gerhard Kandelhart who had problems with the steering servo since the beginning of the race, but with him not giving up he fought to the end, which was finally rewarded with a step on the podium. With Franz Engel coming 3rd place the Shepherd triple victory was sealed.

The final round of the Austrian Championship will take place at the SFMAV track on 14th – 15th October, where three riders still have the chance to win the championship title.
