Hofer wins Swiss Nationals Round 5

Last weekend, the fifth round of the Swiss Championship was held in Montagny, France. The folks at ORCM tried to prepare a top track as successfully as the one The Freiburg built earlier. Unfortunately, the rainy weather on Saturday ruined all of their hard work.

Though the track was extremely washed out by rain, Factory Driver Patrick Hofer was on point with his RC8B3. The sunshine of Sunday dried up the mud, revealing some huge stones. This made tuning the nitro RC8B3 buggy difficult, but it was the same for all cars.

Patrick nevertheless placed among the top drivers. The final 10 minutes was a battle between Joachim Kallen and Hofer, but Hofer pulled ahead to take the win as Kallen's fuel gave out.
