G-7 saw a qualifying where Horky did not managed to produce a single lap.
Vlado won with 1,812 lap followed by:
Mario 1,812, Pavel Herman 1,836, Gugu 1,868, Vaclav Sole 1,871, Anders G. 1,901, Norba 1,915, Juha Y. 1,932, Frank M. 1,944, Lasse ┼. 1,947.
In the semifinal Vlado had a lot of handling problems and it looked sure that he would miss the main.
Anders sad that it looked bad but if it is possible to catch up than Vlado is the one that can do that and Vlado did that. A strong thing to do.
The main started in a high pace. Mario took the lead followed by Lasse and Vlado.
Vlado took over the lead in the second heat followed by Lasse and Horky. Mario had a problem after a crash with Juha and lost a lot of laps.
Juha suffered a lot of braid/tire problem. In the beginning of the heats, the first laps, he often burned his braid.
The third heat saw Vlado still in the lead followed by Horky and Lasse.
In heat four Vlado lost the lead after a bad red lane. New leader became Horky and he held the lead to the end.
Lasse was now second followed by Mario, Gugu and Vlado. Those three only separated by two laps.
Fifth heat. Horky in the lead. Lasse second and Mario third.
Sixth heat. Mario is now only one lap behind Lasse.
Seventh heat. Lasse took some laps from Mario and is now second seven laps ahead of Mario but with red lane to do.
Eight heat. Lasse faced the braid problem Juha had had during the main. His car ran for about two laps slow but working and the braid had to be changed. After that the car was to stuck and Lasse fell back in the field.
Gugu on a good lane managed to pass Vlado who for a while had third place.
G-7 MAIN Results
|Place||Name||First l.||Heat 1||2||3||4||5||6||7||8||Total|
The prize ceremony was nice and Jiri Micec and all people that have made this possible got a big applaud.
It was nice to see a nice face in the main. Pforzheims own Frank Mueller made the main in this strong starting field and finished really good. He drove strong and besides a few problems when he had to pit in the middle of the heats it was a good solid race.
When the race was done Anders and me had to pack everything down and hit the road since we had more than 1500 Kilometres to drive. Our first halt came north of Dresden at a 175-DM hotel whose guests often are BASF people.
Next year the European Championships will, probably, be in Uden. There is a smoking matter that has to be solved first.
In the U.S Nats rules as well as in the E.S.R.O.C rules and Brazilian rules it is stated that no smoking is allowed in the racing room.
In Holland it is said that "everyone" smokes. If it's so than it is a problem to be solved some way.
Udens place is one big room. One year has 365 days. If 362 days could be with smoking and 3 days without smoking there is no problem.
