The 2wd section of this edition of the Euro Offraod Series from Daun, Germany is now over! We’ve witnessed incredible racing and a nail biting finale.

In the 2wd Modified A main, both Micha Widmaier and Michal Orlowski went into it with one leg win a piece. It was winner takes all! The battle for third place was wide open between Lee Martin, Jorn Neumann, Jesper Rasmussen & Pekko Iivonen – it could have gone any way for any of them.

At the start of the race, Micha was comparatively slow off the line, allowing Orlowski to get on his back bumper straight away. The two drivers were giving it 100% and neither one of them looked any faster than the other. Widmaier was just out of reach for Orlowski to make a move and have it stick.  The leading two drivers gapped the chasing pack as Lee Martin made his Yokomo look 10 feet wide defending the line from Jorn. 

Two minutes onto the epic battle for first place, the challenger Michal Orlowski jumped short on the back double, slammed the chassis and tumbled off the track. Even though he was marshalled very quickly the time was too precious to lose. This left Orlowski now having to defend from Lee Martin and Jorn Neumann as Widmaier could relax and open the taps. The damage: 4 seconds! 

Orlowski managed to pull away from Martin & Neumann’s battle for third, diminishing the deficit to 3.5 seconds. But Widmaier was becoming relaxed and the pace was improving. He was able to draw the gap back out the 3.7 seconds before the end of the race.

Overall results:

In the 2wd Stock class, Mick Burbach and Tristam Neal had a win each, so it was all to play for. Simon Stegmeir took the advantage when Burbach had a sensor wire detach and Trish had a mistake. The win for Stegmeier combined with a second place from Leg 1 was enough to take the overall win.

And in the Stock Truck Class, the main challenger, Sven Braciak, was denied the victory after a hugely dominant performance from Philip Marzinger. The Austrian set fastest lap after fastest lap and his Schumacher Storm appeared to be on rails. A well deserved win.
