Orlowski does the double at DHI Cup

Michal Orlowski has done double at the DHI Cup retaining both Offroad titles at the Danish event. Having wrapped up the 2WD after 2 A-Mains earlier in the day, mistakes in the opening 4WD main meant the things would go to A3 but having learnt from his errors in A1 Orlowski took convincing wins in A2 and A3 to complete the perfect start to his 2018 season. With new Schumacher team-mate Joern Neumann winning A1, the German would back this up with two second places to claim second overall for the first Schumacher 1-2 at a major international event in…

Volker claims win No.8 at DHI Cup

…on from his first DHI Cup. He continued, ‘I hit a bump and almost flew off the track on the first lap but I felt the pace was there and could pull away and cruise to the end’. The World Champion added, ‘I’m glad Yannic was able to finish second and we could make it a Yokomo 1-2’. Asked his thoughts on his latest DHI Cup victory he replied, ‘It is nice to add another win here because this is a race I watched from home 15-year ago and it has a very special tradition of kicking off the new…

Neumann wins opening 4WD encounter

Joern Neumann was a surprise winner of the opening A-Main of 4WD at the DHI Cup, the new Schumacher signing benefiting from mistakes from both his team-mate Michal Orlowski and young Swedish star Elias Johansson. Starting from the TQ, freshly crown 2WD champion Orlowski would make a mistake allowing Johansson to go to the front. Chasing down the Associated driver, the Pole would touch wheels with the 2WD runner up with sending his car flying off the track with it getting caught up in the sponsor banners of the drivers stand. Losing around 4-seconds Orlowski would rejoin behind Neumann, with…

Prumper wins A2 from Rheinard

Yannic Prumper has won the second A-Main at the DHI Cup, the Yokomo driver taking full advantage of a bad first lap from his team-mate and Top Qualifier Ronald Volker. Off the start Volker would run wide in the first corner allowing the second place starting Prumper to go to the front but things got worse as chaos broke out in the pack with Volker being given a Stop & Go penalty. All this played into the hands of Prumper who quickly found himself with huge advantage but once Marc Rheinard got up to speed that lead was greatly reduced…

Orlowski makes it 3 in a row at DHI Cup

Michal Orlowski has made it three 2WD titles in a row at the DHI Cup, the Schumacher driver successfully defending his title with the perfect performance. Top Qualifier in Odense, taking all four qualifiers, the Polish driver secured the title when he backed up his A1 win with another in A2. Rather than sit out A3, he would use the track time to test, taking that also despite coming under pressure from star of the weekend Elias Johansson. Johansson would finish second overall being the only driver to mount any challenge to Orlowski over the weekend. With former champions David…

Volker hangs on to win A1

Having dominated qualifying Ronald Volker had to work a lot harder for victory in the opening A-Main at the DHI Cup, the Yokomo driver only just hanging on for the win as challenges from both Yannic Prumper and Marc Rheinard ended with them each suffering rolls. In the end Volker would cross the line over a second clear of Rheinard, but the Infinity driver had the fastest car on track and looked a much more threatening proposition than he had in qualifying, his two rolls costing him over 3-seconds. Recovering from an early roll, that allowed Rheinard through, Elliott Harper…
