Matrix Modified

Coelho holds off hard challenging Rheinard to win ETS RD4 in Neumünster

Xray`s Bruno Coelho walks away from Chuck`s Raceway with maximum points in his pocket. After winning the last outdoor race in Apeldoorn, it was his second consecutive victory (same as Völker) which keeps the overall championship alive for Coelho. Mugen Seiki`s championship leader Ronald Völker finished fourth overall here at Chuck`s Raceway and we can expect two more thrilling ETS races until the end of season 14.
Here is what happened in A2 and A3 today:
Right off the line, Marc Rheinard was on the back of Coelho`s Xray again and made a lot of pressure with his sharp looking Awesomatix car. Rheinard tried to find a gap and he waited for the perfect chance to overtake Coelho. It was easy to see that he had the faster car but none of his overtaking attempts had been successful. In the end, Bruno Coelho crossed the line first with Rheinard in toe. Michele Manzo (Awesomatix) had another great run and confirmed his third starting position once again. Ronald Völker (Mugen Seiki) and Tim Wahl (Awesomatix) completed the top 5 of the second leg in the Matrix Modified class.
With the decision for the overall win on the line between Coelho, Rheinard and Manzo, the tension right before A3 was very high as everybody was standing all around the track to watch the third A-Main. This time, Rheinard was not able to create the same amount of pressure as he did in A2 and Coelho was able to keep the distance between his Xray and the chasing Awesomatix of Rheinard between 0.2 and 0.5 seconds for the whole run. In the end, Bruno Coelho took the overall win at one of the most intense carpet races since a long time! 

Read how the top 3 of the Matrix Modified class reflected their weekend here after ETS RD4 at Chuck`s Raceway in Neumünster

The weekend started very well with a very good pace, we were very confident about this race as we worked a lot for it and the last race there was very positive so the expectation was very high. On the qualifies the things changed a bit and we faced a great fight with Manzo and Marc which was always super close and I was able to TQ on tie breaker with Marc.
In the finals, it was a bit tense with a lot of pressure and many touches. In A1 I got crashed out by Marc in the very first minute and later, after a body tuck from a side by side contact I finished 6th.
In A2 I had a very hard final defending the attacks from Marc who was always on my rear and couldn’t avoid many touches. It was pure lucky to not have again the body stuck or made some “donuts” losing like that the entire work that we have done for long to win this race. In A3 we changed the setup and my car was a little better which I was able to get a very small margin from Marc and manage it until the end.

Bruno Coelho, Xray/Hobbywing

My feeling is for sure very good as the hard work over the years finally payed off…! So winning the first main was for sure not expected but was an extra boost for the other two mains. In A2 I just wanted to save my podium and wanted do a clean run.
In A3 I was just for full send cause I had nothing to lose anymore but I just didn’t have the pace to follow Bruno and Marc but at least I am the happiest guy on earth with the 2nd place. To be the point leader until the last main was pretty nice but I knew its gona be hard to win but I gave everthing I had.

Michele Manzo, Awesomatix/Hobbywing

In A2 I had an intense fight with Bruno, I was a lot faster than him, tried many times to find a way by but he defend pretty good and i couldn’t find a way around him. In A3 I hoped for a similar race as in A2 where I’ve  been a lot quicker than Bruno but he found some pace and we had the same speed. I didn’t had the chance to attack him this time.
Overall I’m happy with my whole package this weekend and also my driving but i’m disappointed with the outcome on P3 as I was showing that I had the the fastest car this weekend! In the end, 2021 wasn’t my year, but I will come back stronger next year!

Xray ProStock

Another big win for Lauter keeps the championship wide open

Simon Lauter (Awesomatix) had another strong run from his pole position in A2 of the Xray ProStock class. As he crossed the finish line, the crowd was cheering for Simon as he showed great pace all weekend long (even with missing Thursday practice) and deserved this win a lot. After Alexandre Duchet (Xray) won the first two races of ETS season 14, he was the top favourite for the title but Simon Lauter is more than back in the game for Awesomatix after he won RD3 in Apeldoorn and RD4 in Neumünster.
Alexandre Duchet then took the third A-Main here at Chuck`s Raceway to secure an important second place (concerning the championship) on the podium in front of Max Mächler (Awesomatix), Jan Ratheisky (Xray) and Frederik Mikkelsen (Awesomatix).

Orca 17.5 Stock

Bemmerl wins at Chuck`s Raceway and aims for overall ETS title

In the Orca 17.5 Stock class, Thomas Bemmerl had the better end on his side after we saw three different winners in the triple A-Mains. With Daniel Pöhlmann taking A1, it was Thomas Bemmerl who won the second leg with Jan Gehring taking A3. It all came down to the tie breaker where Bemmerl and Gehrig were even on points. But as Thomas Bemmerl`s winning time of A2 was the fastest, he booked his third win of the season (after winning both races at Arena33) and the overall championship is not far away from Bemmerl anymore.
