Hofer Wins Swiss Nationals Round #4!August 21, 2013
Event Name: 2013 Swiss Nationals Round #4
Event Location: Dielsdorf, Switzerland
Event Date(s): August 13, 2013 to August 14, 2013
The fourth round of the Swiss national series took place at the Dielsdorf track the weekend of August 17-18. Racers were met with very warm weather and a new challenging double-jump section was made even riskier due to the slippery track conditions.
Factory AE/Reedy driver Patrick Hofer dominated Saturday's 4WD Modified Buggy, qualifying with his Reedy-powered B44.2. His top-qualifying effort would give him a clear advantage for the triple A Mains scheduled for Sunday.
Patrick took command in A1 by making the double look easy on the way to the win. An early mistake in A2 cost Patrick the lead, but in his comeback continued to conquer the challenging double jump lap after lap. Eventually he caught the leader and used his mastery of the double to make a pass for the lead on his way to the win in A2 and the overall victory.
