The club had taken this race on short notice so the organization for the event was a bit rushed, the HNMC team did the best they could and put their effort into building the best track yet. The weather for the event did not look good the week of the event but luckily only the Saturday would suffer with heavy showers thunder and lightning with qualifying being scrapped. Practice rounds were TQ’d by Elliot Boots and Tony Truman with Ryan Cavalieri and Joseph Quagraine finding there rhythm round the track. On Sunday drivers were greeted by a damp track that was drying nicely offering perfect conditions.

Toennessen wins Rd3 of Western German RC Championship
Mugen racer Daniel Toennessen was walking on water on his way to winning round three of the Western German Championship in the 1/10 scale nitro on-road class at Velp. Toennessen became the third winner in the third race with René Puepke winning round one at Dormagen and Michael Salven winning at Dueren. Bernd Rausch has been the main challenger at every race but is still waiting for his first victory. Nevertheless, the Kyosho hotshot is leading the championship ranking.
It was the first time since 2005 that the nitro racers from Western Germany had to cross the border for a championship race at the pleasing track of the EVMC Velp close to Arnheim in The Netherlands. A total of 44 entries – 24 in 1/10, ten in the combined class of Kyosho World Cup and Hobby-Cup (HC10, standard engine), ten in the 1/8 friendship race – confirmed that the choice to go to The Netherlands has been the right one. Everybody enjoyed this demanding 260 meter circuit in every single lap on practice day when the weather was perfect. As predicted, the conditions were different on race day when it was raining cats and dogs.
The main focus was on the 1/10 class as a qualification round for the German Nationals to be held on 2nd of September at Munster in the North of Germany. The battle is going on between Serpent drivers Michael Salven, René Puepke and Benjamin Lehmann, Bernd Rausch from Kyosho, the Mugen pilotes Daniel Toennessen, Dieter Fleischer and Sebastian Buerge as well as lonely Xray racer Andy Weyhoven. Surprisingly, on Saturday it was Joerg Baldes in his first race with Serpent since 2006 and his first 1/10 race since the 2010 Worlds in Texas who was clocked with the best lap time. On the wet track on Sunday there were no tactics, at least 17 of the 24 competitors attended the heats at least to collect some important points. Finally it was Dieter Fleischer taking pole position with his Mugen/RB. He did 13 laps as well as Michael Salven (Serpent/Xceed) and Bernd Rausch (Kyosho/Team Orion) did, taking second and third position.
In the semi final B only two drivers took the challenge with Salven winning with only four laps ahead of Toennessen with only two laps. Five drivers were undeterred by rain from semi final A but nobody did run over the whole race time. Melvin Diekmann (KM) won with 13 laps followed by Rausch (7), Georg Goehlich (KM/6), Faehd Labik (KM/3) and Arndt Bernhardt (Serpent/3). That meant that only seven drivers were qualified for the final race but only six joined the 20 minutes race because Bernhardt was stopped by engine troubles. Only after nine laps Salven had to retire caused by a flooded steering servo. All the other five racers made it to the chequered flag with raising you talent Melvin Diekmann catching third spot on the podium after 43 laps and Labik (37) and Goehlich (32) on fourth and fifth position. The battle for victory was between Rausch and Toennessen. Like in Dormagen and Dueren, Rausch with his Team Orion powered Kyosho R4 was the commanding driver on the track and led the field from 6th to 44th lap. An engine cut-off set him back and opened up a chance for Toennessen – and he made it, took the lead in lap 45 and fought hard to defend it for another lap until the chequered flag in lap 46, with Rausch only 1.065 seconds behind.
The top 10 of the 1/10 class:
1. Daniel Toennessen (Mugen MTX5/Novarossi) – 46 laps
2. Bernd Rausch (Kyosho R4/Team Orion) – 46 laps, 1.065 sec. behind
3. Melvin Diekmann (KM HK-1/Team Orion) – 43
4. Faehd Labik (KM HK-1/Team Orion) – 37
5. Georg Goehlich (KM HK-1/Team Orion) – 32
6. Michael Salven (Serpent 747/Xceed) – 9
7. Arndt Bernhard (Serpent 747/Xceed) – dns
8. Dieter Fleischer (Mugen MTX5/RB)
9. Andy Weyhoven (Xray/Orcan)
10.Wolfgang Feldges (Xray/Orcan)
Rausch is leading the ranking with 353 points in front of Toenessen (349), Weyhoven (348), Puepke (344) and Lehmann (344). Salven (340), Bernhardt (331), Goehlich (330), Fleischer (328) and Labik (321) are listed on positions six to ten among a total of 38 contenders.
The competitors in KWC and HC10 are pure hardcore racers which even cannot be stopped by heavy rain. Not a single driver in this class refused to go out on the wet track for some laps or for all the racing on this day. On top it was Georg Goehlich who drove all four heats and did the most laps of all on that rainy day. One more point make this group of racers so special: All of them went to their marshalling positions immediately, not a single call from race director Heinz Kroezemann was necessary. A creditable example for all the others!
Pole position went to old boy Werner Vogel with his Team Orion powered Kyosho R4 ahead of young Marvin Schumann and Guido Burghartz. The best HC10-competitor was Sebastian Barlak (Mugen/Sonic) on fourth spot. In the 20 minutes final Marvin Schumann had a battle with Werner Vogel and finally took the victory home after 47 laps with Vogel two laps down. Matthias de Keyser came on third followed by Guido Burghartz and Michael Stein (Mugen/Novarossi), the best HC10 finalist.
In the KWC West ranking Schumann is leading the “GP Race” class with 655 points in front of Vogel (615) and Holger Wittek (545), Burghartz leads the “GP Sport” with 560 points followed by Michael Giesen (541) and de Keyser (522). A total of 19 KWC drivers have collected points so far. In the new HC10 West, Michael Stein leads the ranking with Sebastian Barlak second.
Because of the rain, no one of the 1/8 racers wanted to play for love only.
The fourth and last round of the Western German Championship 1/10 scale as well as KWC West and HC10 West will be held on 28/29 of July at Hamm.

Finale of Yokomo Euro Touring Series: Prumper wins, Volker retains title
Yannic Prumper finally ended his three year winning drought today at the season finale of the 2011/12 Yokomo Euro Touring Series when he won Leg 3 of the A-Main ahead of Xray’s Alexander Hagberg to claim the overall win in Austria over the Swede with Yokomo team mate Ronald Volker completing the podium. For Volker the podium was enough for the season’s only double race winner to retain the prestigious Ride Modified title in what has been the world famous electric Touring car’s most competitive championship to date.
Becoming the fifth different winner of the 2011/12 ETS, 18-year-old Prumper was delighted at taking his first major race win since 2009 when he claimed the top step on the podium at the Polish ETS round that year. Joking that he has ‘been waiting a long time’ for this he said the timing of his win couldn’t d be better and it is a big boost for him with the World Championships just two weeks away. The win, Yokomo’s sixth in the 5-year history of the ETS, helped Prumper to claim fourth in the overall championship on a tie break with Kyosho’s Christopher Krapp.
Winning the second of the A-Mains, title contender Hagberg was pleased to claim his third podium of the season saying he gave it his best shot. Being the factory Xray driver’s first full ETS campaign, the winner of the fourth round of the series in Poland was happy with third in the overall ranking adding it was something to build on for next season. Describing each round of the ETS as being like a World or European Championship, Hagberg said the competition was very tough and admitted that today’s races felt like very long 5-minutes!
Delighted at retaining his title in what was an up and down season for the German, Volker was quick to pay tribute to the hard work and effort put in by his Yokomo team in particular his mechanic Yukijiro Umino who traveled from Japan to all six races. Having dominated the opening two rounds on carpet, he said on asphalt the competition was much closer. With his campaign taking a serious hit in Gran Canaria and again in Apeldoorn, both asphalt events, he said this weekend the team turned things around with Yannic securing his first win with the team and him making the podium, a result which was far better than they needed to retain the title.
Missing out on the podium for the first time this season, taking fourth, Marc Rheinard once again had to settle for the runners-up spot but the World Champion, who led the points coming into the season finale said after qualifying 7th any chance of retaking the title which he won in 2009/10 was going to be a miracle. A former team-mate of Prumper he said in the last A-Main he was more focused on how he was doing as had Hagberg won today it would have demoted him to third in the standings.
In the Xray Pro Stock classs there was great celebrations for the Xray team in what can only be described as some seriously close results. In the third A-Main Oliver Franke took the win leaving Top Qualifier Tony Streit and Martin Hofer all equal on race points. With the fastest race time from his Leg 1 victory, Top Qualifier Tony Streit was declared the fifth different winner of the series’ biggest class ahead of out going champion Hofer and Franke. With Franke third this left him tied on points in the overall season standings with factory Xray driver Zdenko Kunak after he managed only 8th overall. Luckily for the 18-year-old Slovak his wins in Germany and Poland gave him the tie break to secure Xray its first ETS while Streit’s win today made it a championship 1-2. Admitting he didn’t make life easy for himself this weekend Kunak, whose father is a major character in the ETS paddock, was delighted at winning his first major international title. Streit, who also was Top Qualifier in Apeldoorn but failed to convert it into a win, was delighted to end his season on such a high and played a major part in helping Xray to secure a very important title victory.
Its first year on the ETS program, the inaugural Formula class title went to Herbert Weber. Claiming his first win of the season finally, the home victory was enough to give secure him the championship ahead of Swiss driver Roman Pichler, who had a tough day, with Dutch driver Alexander Roeleveld completing the overall top three. Growing every race the Formula class is sure to see further growth next season.
