Prumper & Volker complete ETS Rd2 podium

Mod Podium

Yannic Prumper & Ronald Volker completed the podium either side of overall race victor Alexander Hagberg, the Yokomo team-mates completing a formation 1-2 finish in the closing race of the Muelheim-Kaerlich event. Having been no match for Hagberg and his Xray who was able to sit out A3 , the two German’s were the best of the rest with Prumper’s win of the third Main securing him the tie breaker for second overall ahead of Round 1 dominator Volker.

Cerny

Attracting over 320 individual drivers, making it arguably the world’s biggest r/c race of the modern era,  the third round of A-Mains was all about completing the podium positions with the winner of all three classes having been decided in A2.  In Pro Stock, a class that had 202 entries, an entertaining A3 was won by Steffen Leinburger but it was Valentin Hettrich and Jan Ratheisky who would join defending champion Marek Cerny for an all Xray podium.  Making it back to back Fomula wins having won in the Czech Republic,  Ratheisky completed a clean sweep of the main winning all three legs with team-mate Francesco Martini and VBC’s Olivier Bultynck completing the final Top 3.

Dominant Hagberg wins ETS Round 2

TC Winners

Alexander Hagberg has claimed a dominant victory at Round 2 of the Yokomo Euro Touring Series in Germany, the Team Xray driver wrapping up the Muelheim-Kaerlich event by backing his A1 performance by again cruising to an easy win in A2. His second ever ETS success, the first being Poznan in 2011, Hagberg’s win ends both defending champion Ronald Volker and Yokomo’s domination of carpet races for the past two seasons.  It was an ultra successful weekend for Xray with their drivers Marek Cerny and Jan Ratheisky also wrapping up the overall Pro Stock and Formula honours in the second round of A-Mains.

Mod grid

Set to lose his Snowbirds title he won last year due to this weekend’s ETS clashing with the famous American event, the timing of Hagberg’s win couldn’t have been better.  Starting the weekend by securing both his and Xray’s first TQ in the premiere Ride Modified class, the combination was untouchable from the very start of the event with the Swede topping the time sheets every time the world’s best touring car drivers took to the track.  Just ‘Happy’ with his win, his coolness this weekend earning him the title of ‘Ice’Berg’, he said it was hard to point out what exactly gave them the edge this weekend but added ‘it all just came together this weekend’.  Qualifying second at the season opener in the Czech Republic but having a tough race finishing just 8th, he said the speed has been there but this event they found the consistency.  With his rivals openly referring to his pace as ‘impressive’, Hagberg said it was ‘too bad it was the last carpet race of the season’ but he is confident going to Gran Canaria.  With his car having been good on the previous two visits to the Spanish holiday Island he thinks he can again be competitive but with the track having just recently being resurfaced he said ‘you never know’.

Yannic Prumper

The only driver expected to mount any kind of challenge to Hagberg wrapping up the win in A2, Team Yokomo’s Yannic Prumper was too slow.  Faster than team-mate Volker, the 20-year-old said he pushed 110% at the start but it was ‘not possible to keep up’ with the Xray as the ‘speed was not there’.  With Hagberg sitting out A3, Prumper, himself a two time ETS race winner, will start at the front of the grid and is confident he can claim the win to secure second overall.

Marc Rheinard

With Volker holding his 3rd place start position in the race, the biggest mover was Marc Rheinard.  Finishing fourth the series’ most winning driver benefited from an early coming together between team-mate Viktor Wilck and Awesomatix Freddy Sudhoff at the chicane, both drivers having started ahead of the German.  The incident dropped the pair to the back of the field with Round 1 podium finisher Sudhoff recovering to finish 7th while Wilck, third in A1, broke on lap 17 of 22.

Cerny Win

In the second Xray Pro Stock A-Main, having been put under pressure in A1,  Cerny had a much easier passage to victory taking the leg ahead of new team-mate Jan Ratheisky with Valentin Hettrich completing the Top 3.  In Formula Ratheisky again made light work of his rivals taking A2 from Xray team-mate Francesco Martini who just saw off Switzerland’s Philipp Hagnauer.

Hagberg cruises to A1 victory

Hagberg

Alexander Hagberg cruised to a very convincing victory in the opening A-Main at Round 2 of the Yokomo Euro Touring Series this morning in Germany.  Starting from the TQ position having dominated qualifying, the Team Xray driver raced unchallenged to take the win over Ronald Volker and Viktor Wilck despite almost not completing his final lap. Thinking his race was finished but having just crossed the line 1/10th of a second before the 5-minutes was complete he pulled up just in front of race control where team-mate & Pro Stock A1 winner Marek Cerny was about to pick up the car.  Already celebrating his win, he was informed he had still to finish but being the only driver to do 23-laps even with the loss of 8-seconds official register the win with a finishing time.

Hagberg Prumper

‘Happy to start with a win’, Hagberg said his race was made a little easier when Yannic Prumper, who started second, made a bad start allowing him to ‘cruise’ to the win.  Describing his ORCA powered T4 as being really good, him setting the fastest lap of the race, he said he hopes he can repeat his A1 performance again in the second leg.  Commenting on his last lap moment, he said being ‘so into the race’ he wasn’t listening to race announcer Scotty Ernst and seeing the others pulling off the track he thought he was also finished.

Volker Freddy

Volker said as ‘Alex was too fast’ he was ‘glad to get second’.  Having struggled with oversteer in the final qualifier and changing to a different set of tyres for A1, the defending champion said his LRP powered Yokomo BD7 now had ‘huge push’.  With the ETS using different carpet to previous races this weekend, he said the difference between sets of tyres seems more critical and they are struggling as a result of that.  For A2, Volker said he hoped his team mate Prumper would have a better race as he feels he is the only driver capable of challenging Hagberg.  Commenting on his race Prumper said he ‘just messed up’.  After a bad start the German would break a steering hub on his Yokomo on lap 5.

Viktor Wilck

Starting from 5th on the grid Tamiya’s Viktor Wilck was happy to get third.  Changing the top deck on his Speed Passion powered TRF418, he said the car was actually not too bad today.  Team-mate Marc Rheinard would finish almost 4-second behind in fourth.

Freddy

The TRF pairing benefited from a tyre problem for Awesomatix Freddy Sudhoff.  Starting from fourth and challenging Volker for a time, the Round 1 podium finisher said something happened with his tyres leaving him with no rear traction.  Dropping to fourth and struggling as a result he would crash and break on his penultimate lap for a DNF 8th place.

Cerny

In the Xray Pro Stock class Top Qualifier Marek Cerny held off intense pressure from fellow Xray driver Valentin Hettrich for the win.  Hettrich made contact with the defending champion at the hairpin spinning the Czech driver but waited and then made a more successful move a few laps later to go to the front.  Cerny would forced his way back to the front for the win while Round 1 winner Jan Ratheisky came through from 7th to complete the Top 3.  In Formula Ratheisky did a Vettel on the field winning easily over VBC driver Olivier Bultynck.
