Hofer Wins Swiss Nats Round 3!June 27, 2013
Event Name: Swiss 1/10 Off-Road Nationals
Event Location: Obernau, Switzerland
Event Date(s): June 22, 2013 to June 23, 2013
The Swiss 1/10 Off-Road Nationals visited the challenging Astroturf, carpet, and wood combi track in Obernau the weekend of June 22-23.
Reedy/AE factory driver Patrick Hofer quickly established himself as a contender for the win in the 4WD class with impressive lap times during practice. By maintaining the same quick pace in qualifying, Patrick was able to hold off all challengers and claim the pole position for Sunday's finals.
Rain greeted the competitors on Sunday but Hofer was unbeatable. While other drivers opted to make chassis adjustments, Hofer's Reedy-powered B44.2 remained well-balanced and smooth in the slippery conditions. A win in both finals secured the 4WD Modified round win and momentum heading into round 4.
