EOS #4 kicks off at Poland’s largest hobby exhibition



EOS #4 kicks off at Poland’s largest hobby exhibition



Season #4 of the Euro Offroad Series kicks off this weekend (24-26 October) at Poland’s largest hobby exhibition with the 1:10 Offroad championship’s international entry set once again to showcase r/c racing in front of over 40,000 show goers. The third year running that the EOS season will commence in the city of Poznan as part of ‘Hobby’, it will be the first time that the entry for the championship’s buggy classes will be headed by separate drivers. Chasing a fourth consecutive title, Joern Nuemann heads the 4WD Buggy entry while his 2WD Buggy Championship nemesis Naoto Matsukura makes the trip from Japan for the first time to one of Poland’s oldest cities.

The most winning driver of the EOS, this weekend marking the 12th race since the establishment of the championship in 2012, Neumann faces his toughest start to a season yet with Round 1 attracting a heavily loaded entry. Racing alongside 13-year-old Durango team-mate Michal Orlowski, the national star claiming the first of two 2013/14 podium finishes at his home race, Neumann’s biggest challenge will come from outside the Durango squad with Xray, Yokomo, Schumacher and Team C all upping their campaign’s for Season #4.

With an impressive record of 10 wins from 11 races in 4WD Buggy, Neumann’s biggest challenger in that class is set to again come from Xray and Martin Bayer. The Czech driver became the first & so far only driver to deny the German a victory, forcing the championship decider to go to the final race. Bayer, who also managed Xray’s first 2WD win last season, will be joined this year by 1:8 European Championship Runner-up Martin Wollanka. The Austrian only did the final 2 rounds last year but showed good speed with a number of A-Main appearances.

The first time Neumann wont start out as the defending champion of 2WD Buggy, it is offroad’s original class that has the greatest number of potential winners. Last year ever round produced a different winner with Hupo Honigl winning the season opener before switching to Team C and coming very close to a debut win with his new team at Round 2. Newly crowned Touring Car World Champion Matsukura would take that win enroute to securing Yokomo’s first EOS title and the Japanese manufacturer for whom he also 4WD Top Qualifier at the season finale is back in force. After a development year with his new Yokomo team, Lee Martin starts his first full EOS campaign as a serious title threat and both drivers will have the support of designer Shin Adachi, the accomplished Japanese driver also on the Poznan entry list.

Securing his first EOS TQ at the event last year in 2WD, this time round Schumacher’s Tom Cockerill will have the benefit of a quick team-mate. Driving on a carpet surface track for the first time at the Season #3 finale in Slovakia, emerging US talent & 1:8 Offroad World Championship podium finisher Carson Wernimont makes a very welcomed return and is sure to be a big asset to the British manufacturer’s expanded squad. With Horizon Hobby, Xray, Kyosho & Team Durango being joined by Serpent, Yokomo and Schumacher as primary sponsors of this year’s EOS, a big change for the 2014/15 season is the change to Schumacher’s Mini Pin tyre, a tyre widely acknowledged by racers across Europe as being superior for indoor offroad competition use. A three day event, Friday will be made up of practice from all class with Saturday set to decide the 2WD Round 1 winner before switching to 4WD for Sunday’s race action.
