German Final at Burgdorf
During the 5/6 of August the first German LRP-HPI-Challenge final was held in Burgdorf (near Hannover). It was a brilliant result, with about 130 starters at the very first German final. That proofs the point, that the LRP-HPI-Challenge in Germany attracts more and more drivers to come to a race. After about 825 starters in 79 regional races in 2000, the LRP-HPI-Challenge will be THE race series to attend in Germany in 2001. Many of the more established race series in Germany don't show a similar performance.
The organising club of the first German final was the MAC Burgdorf e.V., which made a perfect job. They were supported by Race Director Friedel Brandt (Berlin) and moderator Tom Bundt (Hamburg). Both experts were brought there by LRP, just to make racing perfect. The track in Burgdorf is surely one of the best tracks in Germany and with the great surrounding, like Camping directly beside the track, two days of pure sun, no time delays, very good technical inspection (nearly without any complaints), loads of trophies and prizes, there was no chance of the starters to complain about something - except that everyone would have liked to win.....
LRP-HPI Mini Challenge (29
LRP-HPI Sport Challenge (40
LRP-HPI Pro Challenge (61 starters)
During the trophy presentation
at the end of the day, also the three top guys of each region (5 regions
all over Germany), of each class, got special trophies and prizes. The
winners of the final and every one of the 130 starters got trophies or
at least a prize. So the first German LRP-HPI-Challenge final came to
an end and everyone had something to talk about for the next few weeks.
Everyone was happy and satisfied. Hopefully we will see them next year
to the second German LRP-HPI-Challenge final! Finally, the best drivers
of all classes will be starting for Germany at the upcoming HPI-Challenge
Euros in Burglen/Switzerland.
