RONALD VÖLKER & LRP SECURE SECOND ETS TITLE IN A ROW Image 2

What a season for LRP team driver Ronald Völker! He defended the prestigious title in the Modified class of the ETS – the most important international touring car race series.

The ETS is one of the most thrilling race series in the international race calendar. Europe’s top drivers start at 6 events in 6 different countries to compete for this highly prestigious title. Only the best of the best drivers have the chance to come out on top in the end.
Ronald Völker made a clear statement already in the first two rounds. His clearly defined aim was to defend his 2010/2011 title – as the second driver in the ETS history after Jilles Groskamp. By winning round 1 in Koblenz, Germany and round 2 in Scandiano, Italy, Ronald was able to break away from his competitors at the season’s opening events.

The task to win is not always that easy, when the technology used at such an important race series is still in the development process. It was no question that the new LRP Vector X20 Brushless Modified motor is an absolutely reliable power module. Ronald uses it in his Yokomo car without any problems since January.
However, for the brand new LRP Flow WorksTeam speed control, the ETS races were the final tests under toughest competition conditions. After two years of developing, the successor of the LRP SXX Version 2 was able to reveal its potential during the ETS season. The new LRP Flow proved to be a technological trend-setter already in this early stage of its racing career.
In Ronald’s Yokomo car, the advanced LRP brushless combo presented itself as a reliable and smoothly controllable power package – and as the decisive factor for great race results.

Ronald Völker’s competitors didn’t consider an unconditional surrender: 6 events saw 5 different winners – only the LRP team driver could celebrate two victories. Alexander Hagberg, Marc Rheinard and Christopher Krapp did their best to challenge Ronald’s lead in the overall ranking. Ronald was under consistent pressure from his high-class rivals.
This season’s list of winners was completed by Yannic Prümper who won the 6th and last round in Traiskirchen, Austria. With two second place finishes in the A-mains, Ronald secured the 3rd position in Traiskirchen – behind Alex Hagberg and ahead of Marc Rheinard. The 3rd place was enough for Ronald to conquer the top position of the overall ETS 2011/12 ranking. Ronald made a clean double perfect and defended his last year’s title in the highly competitive Modified class.

This great result is even more impressing, if you consider that some of the results have been realised with a prototype of the new LRP Flow WorksTeam speed control. Also Freddy Südhoff was part of the testing process. He qualified for several A-mains with the new LRP Flow.

Compliments to Ronald Völker! Despite some heavy setbacks, Ronald was always strong-nerved and showed his best performance when it came to the decisive moments in this ETS season. What a great success for Ronald Völker and LRP!
