Bayer blasts to German Nats win

Bayer

This past weekend hosted Round 1 of the German 1/8 Offroad Nationals. The event was held in Landshut, Germany by Club La Speedway. The track was made up of fresh dirt, and with very little water it became an extremely rough racing surface for the competition to tackle. XRAY’s Martin Bayer would take the overall TQ spot after qualifying, but struggled in the semi final. He would start 4th in the final, but fought his way past the Carsten Keller and Team Durango’s Jörn Neumann to take the win!

Jason Nugroho

The Malaysia National League Round 4 was held on August 23-24, 2014 at 3 Stone Park Track, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. There were a total of 74 racers in attendance from Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and Indonesia. The race format was 5 rounds of 10 minute qualifying, with ‘Christmas tree’ finals. The usual suspects were up front at the start of the final, with the exception of XRAY’s Jason Nugroho. Jason was buried in the pack after an early crash dropped him to 10th. Despite his troubles he fought back passing Ben Panic and Daniel Law to take the lead at the 15 minute mark. From there, Nugroho never looked back, taking the win! Daniel Law and Ben Panic would finish out the podium for the day.
