Race Report by Max Gotzl
The Big final also the overal 2018/19 season of the Mibosport cup has finished, it took a place as always in the Hotel Sport Hrotovice with around 270 entries, which was the record for this year! This race was also special, because of the double points from this race, so it could really change the overall rankings.
There was as always a free followed by controlled practice on Friday. It was Hupo Hönigl going into the qualies from the 1st position with 2WD and Martin Bayer was 1st with 4WD.
After qualies it was Martin on the top in both classes, followed by Ales Bidovsky and Hupo in 2nd and 3rd with 2WD, with 4WD it was Adam Izsay 2nd and Hupo again 3rd. I was starting 4th from the 4WD grid and 5th with 2WD, not the best starting positions, but I unfortunately couln’t make it a 5 min race in the qualies.
With 4WD it was Martin who took the win in A1 and A2 and secured the overall win. I put good runs in A1 and A2, even tried to catch Martin, but he is still too fast, I finished 2nd in both of the finals and so I finished also in the end! Hupo took the 3rd place now, in front of 4th Bartolomiej and 5th Zsolt Bajusz.
