Martin Bayer dominates EOS R3

Martin Bayer reports after his recent double victory at the third round of the EOS… The EOS series is one of the most competitive off-road series since not only all the European best drivers are present but various factory team drivers from overseas come to the race so the competition level is extremely high, it is almost like a World championship series but on carpet. With our team we did a lot of work and progress since we released the XB4 and the 2WD version and we continuously worked and improve from a race to the next race.

Neumann unbeatable at EOS – 4WD

LRSun-4wPodium

Joern Neumann has kept his reign as the only driver to win 4WD Buggy in the TLR/Spektrum Euro Offroad Series after another dominant performance in the second A-Main at Round 3 of the series secured the Team Durango driver the overall win in Leoben, Austria.  The champion of last season’s inaugural EOS and the winner of all six events that have been run since the creation of the series, today’s victory also means that the German ace has successfully defended his title with the season finale still left to run.

Starting Leg 2 from pole position, having been the 4WD Top Qualifier at every EOS, Neumann saw off a challenge from Team Xray’s Renaud Savoya on the opening lap after which he pulled clear of the field to win by almost half a lap ahead of team-mate Hupo Honigl who managed to keep Peter Pinisch at bay.

Martin Bayer and David Ronnefalk claimed the remaining two spots on the 4WD Buggy podium at the TLR/Spektrum Euro Touring Series either side of newly crowned Champion Joern Neumann after the 1:8 Offroad regulars finished 1st & 2nd respectively in the closing race of what was a successful first visit to Leoben in Austria.

Neumann takes Rd 3 EOS 2WD win

Hupo Honigl and Martin Bayer completed the 2WD Buggy Podium at EOS Round 3 in Austria after the pair had very contrasting races in the 3rd A-main.  Having been the only driver to challenge overall winner Joern Neumann for the win in the opening two mains, Bayer would start at the front of the grid as the German sat out the closing race but the Team Xray driver race would have a fraught affair.  Dropping back down the pack following an error at the dBoots double on the opening lap, as hard as the Czech driver tried to make his way back through it wasn’t to be and after coming together with fellow 1:8 Offroad racer Robert Batlle a number of times he would retire his TLR22 with 1-minute to go due to a broken diff.

Moving to the front after Bayer’s mistake, Honigl controlled the race from start to finish but didn’t have it all his own way with German National Champion Oliver Scholz pushing the Durango driver hard.  Running right with Honigl, on the last lap the Team C driver looked like he might try a pass but got it wrong at the first jump allowing the Austrian to complete the final lap unchallenged to win by 2.5 seconds from Scholz and Team Associated’s Peter Pinisch.  The result would give Durango a 1-2 on the podium with Bayer demoted to the final step on the podium.

Overall Result 2WD Buggy
1. Joern Neumann (DE) – Durango – 2 pts

EOS 4WD, XRAYs chasing TQ Neumann

LRSat-NeumannTQ

Having surprised his rivals by topping the opening round of qualifying, Team Xray’s Renaud Savoya proved it was not by chance as he again put his XB4 top of the time sheets in Q4. Ending qualifying equal on points with defending Champion Joern Neumann, the French ace was denied the overall TQ on his debut in the TLR/Spektrum Euro Offroad Series due to the German having a faster combined time from his TQ runs in Q2 & 3.  For Neumann securing the Top Qualifier honours maintains his record as being the only driver to start on pole position in 4WD Buggy in the EOS since its creation.

Having struggled with a very nervous buggy in Q3 after he set his ride height incorrectly when copying that of his team-mate Martin Bayer, Savoya said with it set correctly his Orion powered XB4 was ‘way more easy to drive’.  Conscious of the fastest time deciding the tie break he said he pushed as hard as he could but his tyres went off hence the slower time which was 1.4 second off his own opening TQ time.  Not expecting to be as competitive on his debut, the 3-time 1:8 Offroad European Champion said he is really looking forward to racing Neumann, who is recognised as one of best 4WD Buggy drivers in the World, in tomorrow’s triple Mains.

4WD Buggy A-Main Grid
1. Joern Neumann (DE) – Durango – 310 pts
2. Renaud Savoya (FR) – Xray – 310
3. Martin Bayer (CZ) – Xray – 306
4. Hupo Honigl (AT) – Durango – 304 | 5. Peter Pinisch (AT) – Associated – 303 | 6. Michal Orlowski (PL) – Durango – 303 | 7. Jiri Mara (CZ) – Xray – 300 | 8. Oliver Scholz (DE) – Team C – 298 | 9. David Ronnefalk (SE) – Kyosho – 296 | 10.Martin Kreil (AT) – Durango – 295
