Race Report by Max Gotzl:
The 6th round of Czech Open series took a place last weekend at my home track in Horní Jelení!
The track was getting perfect already on Friday after some water that fell down, on Saturday morning we started qualies and the track had perfect surface and was clear.
I took the TQ in all 3 qualifications with both Nitro and E buggy. It was me in front of Jiri Mara and Jiri Benes in Nitro. With E buggy again me, in front of Vaclav Broz and Michal Binder.
In the Semi it was fight between me and Jiri for the pole position in Main final, but I made faster time also with some mistakes to take it. For the Main final I made some small setup changes and changed tires, so my car was perfect. At the start I made a small mistakes and dropped to 2nd but easilly jumped back. In the rest of the main I was making faster laps, wasn't making amy mistakes and was able to pull away and carry the win home!

First two mains with E buggy went great to my side and I took an easy tone-to-tone wins in both rounds from Vaclav and Michal, that was the overall podium! I got 1st place also as the best Junior!
