Ryan goes Pyscho with his 801's
After capturing the TQ posistion through 3 rounds, Adam Drake was set to capture his 2nd Truggy Psycho Nitro Blast title.

Rheinard Extends Championship Lead
Starting from pole, Rheinard was the class of the field in the final race, quickly establishing a comfortable buffer, but the German almost threw it away. Three corners from the finish line he flipped his Speedpassion powered Tamiya, losing 2.5 seconds, but luckily for the two time World Champion his lead was big enough that he could still take the win. The big battle of the race was for second between last year’s winner Yannic Prumper and Leg 1 winner Viktor Wilck. Having struggled all weekend, Prumper moved his shocks to a lower position, but it was a case of too little too late. Starting fourth on the grid, he found a way passed Steven Weiss and eventually got ahead of Wilck for second, lifting him to fourth overall. Expecting to really push Rheinard for the win, Wilck fitted a fresh rear diff to his TRF416 X for the final race but a slip cost him any chance of closing the standings deficit which has now grown to 5 points.
