Patrick Hofer wins double at the Hohenems Winterchamps in Austria

The Winterchamps track was surfaced with carpet, due to the high bite and flat surface, drivers had to find a touring car setup for their buggies. On Saturday, Pro-Line‘s Patrick Hofer started setting the lap-time level in the training and qualifying sessions.

On Sunday after two more rounds of qualification, Patrick placed his B4.2 on TQ and his B44.2 on second. Due to a mistake from Patrick, Kyosho driver Sven Zünd won the first of three finals in 2WD. Patrick stayed cool and won round 2 and 3 and secured the overall win in 2WD Modified.

In 4WD Buggy Modified there was a hot fight between Roger Burkhard, Sven Zünd , and Patrick Hofer. In the first round, Patrick crashed and Roger Burkhard finished first, followed by Sven Zünd . In round 2, Patrick took the lead early and finished the line first, followed by Sven Zünd . So those three drivers had to do the decision in round 3. After three laps, Patrick and Sven led the field. Patrick was able to pass Sven after four and a half minutes and did the double perfect.
