The fifth round of Czech Open series was held last weekend in Usti nad Labem. For the first time ever in the history of this series, the race took place on a very bumpy Astro track. In qualifications XRAY’s Kaja Novotny managed to take the TQ in all 4 rounds and started 1st in Semi A. The semifinal didn´t start well for Kaja. He hit the bump in the first lap and lost few places, but quickly he got back to the lead and won the semifinal with more than lap ahead of 2nd driver and gained pole position for the main final. After few changes on its car for the final Kaja pulled away from the field from the start. In the end Kaja took the win with huge gap in front of Ivo Viktorin and Martin Zicha in second and third respectively.
