2. Free Mountain Race in Waldau/Thuringia and application of the Ford Focus at the 2. Irmscher Rallyesprint in Winnenden
A very busy weekend lies behind the Tyczka Totalgaz Rallye Team about we are pleased to inform you:
Our sponsor AERYS Performance Parts was one of the organizers of the 2. Free Mountain Race situated in the small village Waldau in the picturesque Thuringian forrest. Moreover we were invited by Alexander Kelber to this event.
Due to the defect gearbox after the RallyeSulingerLand we were not able to use the Subaru Impreza for this event. So we decided to activate our "pensioner" VW New Beetle. Our team boss Walter Farkas drove the LPG powered Beetle as final car on the 2,5 km long mountain racetrack with 13 curves. It's still a nice experience to feel the enthusiasm of about 4000 spectators on both days when they see our Beetle. It was second-rate that the times of the popular racecar can not be the same as with the competitors in cars with much more horse-power. In any case we had a lot of fun and like to thank AERYS Performance Parts for the invitation.
The first application in season 2009 had also our Ford Focus which is powered of course with the reasonable LPG. Martin Baur and Doris N├Ągel started at the 2. Irmscher Rallyesprint Winnenden. On this occasion, it was a matter of mastering a 7,5-km-long circuit close to Affalterbach for three times. In the most marvellous spring weather, quick curve combinations, a switchback turn and a jump hilltop let arise none boredom with the spectators.
For the first time with the new car it took a little while for the duet Baur/N├Ągel till they learnt to use the car. At least they finished the competition after 22,5 special stage kilometres on rank eight in class 3.
