EOS 2018-19 Round 1

19 September 2018

The first round of the 2018-19 EOS Series is in the books.  It was an extremely successful one for Schumacher drivers and cars.

In 2WD Michal Orlowski showed his class just being pipped for TQ by close rival Lee Martin.  So Michal lined up 2nd on the grid and Jorn Neumann an excellent 4th.  The finals saw some excellent fights, after the tree legs the top 3 drivers all had the same 3 point score, with a win and a second between them.  Unfortunately for Michal he time was the slowest of the three, so ended 3rd on the podium.  Jorn had an unlucky set of finals and ended up 8th, not a true reflection of his pace.

In 4WD Michal dominated with his CAT L1, taking a comfortable TQ's in round 1,2 and 3.  Jorn had a strong 5th place line up on the grid.  Pekko Iivonen and Wesley van Helmond had strong run lining up 12th and 19th.
The finals saw some close running but it was Michal who came out on top with wins in the first 2 legs.  Jorn was unluckily just off the podium in 4th.

Jorn and Michal also entered the truck class for some fun.  Jorn took home the win this time with Michal in second.

Young Daniel Ortiz was 2nd in the 13.5t 2wd class!

Overall a great weekend for our drivers with a fantastic team presence, congratulations to all of them!
