The 2008 International Winter Champs were held January 5-6 at the Hohenems off-road track in Austria.
Top drivers from all over Europe came to compete on this high traction carpet off-road surface. The track was very challenging with many obstacles and high speed sections.
In qualifying Team Orion Factory Driver Jorn Neumann was looking good. With the race format using each driverâ€™s two best points out of five rounds counting, qualifying was very close.
Jorn would start 2nd on the grid for the Triple A-Final format in both 2wd and 4wd modified.
In 2wd, despite leading the A-Final several times and setting fastest laps, Jorn secured to 2nd place overall.
In 4wd he took 2 out of the 3 mains to secure the win with an immaculate drive and setting again fastest lap times.
After winning both the 2wd and 4wd classes at the Petit RC race in France at the end of 2007, it is an excellent start for Jorn and Team Orion in the new year!
