Last weekend was held the fifth round of the Swiss Championship in Montagny. The troops of ORCM tried to prepare a top track. Unfortunately the rainy weather on Saturday made the work to naught.

Factory Driver Patrick Hofer was to start with his RC8B3.

The track was extremely washed out by rain. The sunshine on Sunday dried up the mud in which some huge stones made tuning the RC8B3 difficult. Finally, the right tire choice was to tip the scales. Patrick used Pro-Lines LockDown X3 tires for the Final.

Patrick quickly settled in with other drivers at the top. Various engine cuts meant that Patrick was at the top and was nearly 20 seconds ahead suddenly. But his car seemed somehow not optimal to do for the last 10-minutes. It was around 10-minutes to go when it came down to a duel between Patrick and Joachim Kallen, who was now closing the gap. Patrick had more fuel reserves than Joachim Kallen and he ended up flaming out giving Patrick the victory!
