The 10th electric Euros were held in Fehring, Austria, July 9-14, 2012. Practice began on Monday the 9th and things were going well for JConcepts Team Driver Jörn Neumann. The track did start to break up a bit and became real bumpy in some parts. That evening there was a little rain which did end up helping the track. The track crew was able to fix everything and the track was now perfect and ready for qualifying.
2WD qualifying didn’t start that well for Jörn. His first run ended with a DNF but things did get better and Jörn ended up qualifying 4th for the Finals. Jörn had a close battle with the front drivers and after some bad luck with the wind on the last lap he finished 2nd in the 2nd A-Main. In the 3rd main Jörn tried everything but a few small mistakes cost a podium finish. Jörn finished 4th overall with his JConcepts equipped Durango.
For 4WD it was a whole new game. The weather changed the schedule to all practice on Thursday and qualifying on Friday, with all the finals on Saturday morning. The weather stayed great for 4 out of 5 qualifying rounds and all 3 A-Mains. Jörn was able to TQ 3 out of 4 Rounds, so he was the overall TQ. In the finals Jörns JConcepts equipped Durango flew around the track to win A1 and A2. A dominating performance, to win his 3rd European Championship title!
