Race report by Bruno Coelho:

Last weekend, we headed to the last EOS race of this season, in Nurburgring Germany, with only one thought in mind. We needed to win. The XB4 behaved so well throughout the entire season, there was never a track that the car didn’t felt comfortable and for me the only way to make this car any justice would be adding the EOS series to the World Championship. 
My XB4 was perfect from minute 1, and I manage to get TQ, which early secured the goal for this race. And once that goal was secure, we could relax and simply enjoy how much fun this car is to drive. I’m super happy and proud with the win in this race and also for the overall results we were able to achieve for this car.
