CEZ/BRC/DRX: Round-up

Category: Miscellaneous, News Posted 12.10.13 16:30 by

Nyirád in Hungary hosted the final round of the FIA Central European Zone Championship, Maasmechelen the Finale of the Belgian Rallycross Championship and Schlüchtern the final round of the German Rallycross Championship.

 

CEZ: The Finale of the FIA Central European Zone Championship series was held at the ERC venue of Nyirád in Hungary. As the three qualifying heats took too much time the event was cancelled before the finals, due to vision problems at dawn. Hungarian Tamás Kárai made good use of his Škoda Fabia Mk1 on home soil, beating Austrian Peter Ramler and fellow Hungarian Zoltán Harsányi to second and third place respectively in qualification.

Austrian Alois Höller made it to fourth, but with nine championship points ahead of Ramler the SuperCars title was safe for the Ford campaigner. Klaus Freudenthaler won the Super1600s event from his compatriot Werner Panhauser, the championship ended with the same one-two result. Slovakian Karol Šedivý claimed the event victory in SuperNationals, but the title went to Czech Jakub Bittman, although the Peugeot driver finished the Nyirád event in sixth place.

BRC: At Maasmechelen the 7th and final round of the Belgian Rallycross Championship was won by Koen Pauwels from Jos Kuijpers and Patrick Van Mechelen. Prior to the event PVM had a five points advantage over Kuijpers in the championship, therefore his third place was enough to bag the title.

In the third heat the Ford campaigner had a scare while rolling the ex-Kuijpers Fiesta Mk7. However, Van Mechelen made good use of the car he bought from the Dutch-Italian in late 2012, claiming the SuperCar titles of the Rallycross Challenge Europe as well as both, the Belgian and Dutch titles of the main category.

DRX: The Finale of the German Rallycross Championship at the Ewald-Pauli-Ring at Schlüchtern in Hesse turned out to become another demonstration of the current poor state of Rallycross in Germany. With just four starters a very small entry in the combined SuperCars/Super1600s class; and with Andreas Schrader eventually an International German Rallycross Champion who took part in all events of the series, but did not see the finish flag in some of the six DRX rounds.

The chase after the title National German Rallycross Champion for the contenders of the SuperNationals category was a more interesting affair, and so was the situation in the German Rallycross Cup class. In SuperNationals 19 years old Rallycross girl Silva Winterhoff claimed the title with her vintage Volvo 544 PV, and the RX Cup became prey of the 16 years old VW Polo Mk3/6N campaigner Jannik Riese.
