The 9th and final round of Czech Open series took place last weekend. The race was supposed to be in Radotin, but with some heavy rains in the last 2 weeks most of the Czech tracks were impassable and the only club that again managed to do impossible was in Kolin. The qualifications, held in wet and muddy conditions saw Jiri Mara take overall TQ in front of Kaja Novotny and Max Gotzl. In the main final Mara and Kaja Novotny got quickly away from the rest of the field and fought for the lead but few errors from Novotny in the end will allow Mara to take the lead and the win. Novotny in second and Gotzl in third completed the podium.

Race report by Malin & Bent Karlsen (XRAY):
Yesterday I attended round #6 of the OMK / Way To Win – 2WD Fall Classic race series. The race series is run over 8 rounds on OMK’s Astro track partially under the flood lights in the evening. Race format consists of open free practice and then 3 qualifiers and 3 finals. As usual I was running my ’17 XRAY XB2 CE with the new layout and JConcepts Swagger and Lockness astro tires combined with ORCA electronics. As opposed to the previous round this time the track was dry, although very cold, so traction was quite good for the evening.
