Race report of the 2nd round of the Danish Nationals by Pelle Culmsee:

I came to the track saturday morning for getting my Orion powered HB car ready for the morning practice, I had some 3d printet parts on my car. But just when I rolled out of the pit my car flipt and the parts where broken, so not much practice for me that day. The first qualify went okay, but I made to many mistakes so I got a 3 place in that round, next round I broke a rear axle so a DNF, next round I made really manny mistakes so I got a 5 place. Last round of qualifying when I was heating my engine up it sounded strange from my gearbox so I never came out running.

Race report by Bruno Coelho:

Last weekend, we headed to the last EOS race of this season, in Nurburgring Germany, with only one thought in mind. We needed to win. The XB4 behaved so well throughout the entire season, there was never a track that the car didn’t felt comfortable and for me the only way to make this car any justice would be adding the EOS series to the World Championship. 
My XB4 was perfect from minute 1, and I manage to get TQ, which early secured the goal for this race. And once that goal was secure, we could relax and simply enjoy how much fun this car is to drive. I’m super happy and proud with the win in this race and also for the overall results we were able to achieve for this car.
