ENS R3 IN FIORANO, ITALY

We want to give you some news on our third race of the 2020 ENS season. We are all looking forward to going back to Fiorano for the weekend 29 October to 01 November and always enjoy our time in Italy with the Gesualdi family and their wonderful team.

We will open the entries for the race on TUESDAY 29 SEPTEMBER at 8:00PM. However, because of the changing conditions, we will not ask anyone to make the payment for the tyres until two weeks before the race. You can also book your hotels, but we would recommend that you find an option that does allow you to cancel, in case the rules in either your country or Italy change in the next month.

Just so you all know, we 100% expect our race in Fiorano to take place. As of right now, the conditions and rules will allow this to happen. We will only change our plan if there are some big changes to the situation that makes it impossible for this to happen!

We will work with the Gesualdi family in the next weeks to check the exact Corona-rules we need to have for the race, and also about the maximum entries too. So please make your plans and get ready to make your entry!

KURZBUCH AND GREINER MAKE IT 2 FROM 2 IN 2020 ENS

The winners of the 1:8 Scale and 1:10 Scale Class of the opening round of the 2020 Euro Nitro Series last month were once again the drivers to beat in the respective 45 minute long finals at Round 2 of the shortened series, which took place at the famous Apeldoorn circuit in the Netherlands.  Due to the seemingly ever-changing travel restrictions in place, it was unfortunate that some drivers had to make a last-minute cancellation to their entry – perhaps the most notable being the Italian Infinity pairing of Dario Balestri and Carmine Raiola.

KURZBUCH GETS ENS TITLE DEFENSE OFF TO GREAT START

Simon Kurzbuch, the defending ENS champion, is celebrating today after taking home a maximum points haul from the first event. Held at the MAV Aigen-Schlägl circuit in Austria, the championship eventually getting started after the Coronavirus situation enforced a near-four month delay to the racing season, Kurzbuch and his Shepherd Micro Racing car started from pole position and initially came under pressure from long-time rival Dario Balestri.

GREINER HAS "PERFECT RACE" TO WIN ENS AUSTRIA

Dominic Greiner took the win in the 1:10 Scale Class at the opening round of the ENS Season. Starting from second on the grid, the German driver got past the pole position starting Jilles Groskamp on the opening lap, and from there never looked back. When asked about the race, the former World Champion was almost at a loss for words, before describing the 45 minute final as a "perfect race". Admitting to struggles in the qualifying rounds on Friday and Saturday, the newly signed capricorn rc driver said that today, with the temperature increasing again and the track feeling more like it had on Thursday's Free Practice day, he was again very happy with his car. Also commenting on the work of his pit man, Thomas Günsel, he explained that the new rules in place due to Coronavirus restrictions, meaning just one mechanic was permitted in the pit lane for each car, was "no problem, he was perfect too like always". The victory takes his ENS tally to six, putting him now equal with the absent Teemu Leino as the most successful in the 1:10 Scale Class in the famous championship.

SALVEN FIRST ENS WINNER OF 2020

Michael Salven took the first overall win of the 2020 Euro Nitro Series, with a solid victory in the +40 Masters class. Leading the field from pole position, the Serpent designer quickly established a comfortable gap over the field. As the 30 minute final progressed, it became clear that the fight on track would be for second place, as Gerhard Kandelhart initially held off 2018 Champion Arie Manten, and last seasons runner-up, Andrea Hachler. The three traded positions around the technical MAV Aigen-Schlägl circuit, with the verdict eventually going to Hachler as the three crossed the line separated by just over two seconds at the end of the race. Out front, Salven was able to keep a solid rhythm, putting the whole field a lap down by the end of the run.

ENS AIGEN 1:10 SCALE PREVIEW WITH DOMINIC GREINER & JILLES GROSKAMP

Whilst the 1:8 Scale Class has seen one driver dominate at MAV Aigen-Schlägl, with Simon Kurzbuch winning all except one of the ENS races held at the Austrian circuit (that being a very wet first event, where John Ermen took the victory), the 1:10 Scale class has seen a slightly more varied set of results. Teemu Leino is the most successful at the venue scoring three wins, with every other event won by a different driver. With Leino sadly unable to attend the 2020 ENS opener due to travel restrictions imposed by his native Finland, we spoke to two of the other winners at the Aigen track, Dominic Greiner (winner in 2014) and Jilles Groskamp (winner in 2018).

APELDOORN TO REPLACE ETTLINGEN ON REVISED ENS 2020 SCHEDULE

Although we announced our planned ENS calendar a few weeks ago, the Coronavirus situation means we need to make a change to the schedule. We were looking forward to racing at Ettlingen again this season, but the local rules and government restrictions mean that this is not possible. We of course hope to get back to Ettlingen for next year!

We immediately looked for other options, and we are pleased to announce that we have received positive news from the Apeldoorn track in the Netherlands! So we will move our second event to be held there. The date remains the same at 10-13 September.

Finally, we have had the ‘green light’ from the town officials in Aigen. So we are pleased to confirm that we have an official start to the ENS championship in August! More information will be posted in the next few days.

* EURO NITRO SERIES UPDATED 2020 CALENDAR *
Round 1 – 13-16 August – Aigen, Austria
Round 2 – 10-13 September – Apeldoorn, The Netherlands
