Huge congrats to the German buggy team - Malte Lutz and the Thomes bros Sebastian & Max are on top of their game and sweep the podium on the last stop of the German race season and also take the top 3 ranking in the overall classification.
last weekend the final races for 2015’s german buggy racing season took place on Borkum. Luckily a first set of the new flagship R1 arrived just one day before the event :).
Sebastian, Max and myself enjoyed every moment on the island without too much stress during the races.
As always Borkum presented itself as a huge technical beach including soft dunes, a hard waterline and sticky deep sand. Nevertheless our R1 and Chrono made winning easy as we didn’t have to care about our kites! Being able to concentrate on the beach, course and other pilots is by far one of the biggest advantages ;)
Finally Sebastian, Max and myself endet up on the first three places – not only regarding the ranking of this weekend but also the one for the 2015’s german championship. Well done mates!

"On sunday (last weekend) the last races for the German Kite-Buggy championship took place on Borkum. The Ozone team was represented by Max, Sebastian and Malte. Until that weekend we were leading the fleet on place 1 (Malte) 2 (Sebastian) and 3 (Max). Of course all team riders wanted to keep their positions. We (Seb and Max) arrived in Friday morning. We had some fun at the beach but we also prepared ourselves for the races and practiced for the special location which Borkum definitely is because of the many dunes.
On Saturday it was enough wind to start immediately after the first briefing. We were able to maintain our good positions not only overall but also for the weekend. On Sunday we met at 10 o clock at the beach. The
Sun shone, but sadly there was no wind. In the afternoon there was an attempt for a race, but it was cancelled before it ended due to the low wind.
After a long sunny day we celebrated that all of us made it on the top of the Masters! Malte won the championships, Seb became vice-champion and I ended up in the third place. We would like to thank Ozone for the support and especially for the great high performance kites!
