Apr 08, 2011 No Comments by

The 2011 Euro Off-Road Series was held this past weekend in Sweden. Race Organizer Uwe Rheinard who is the father of 3-Time Touring Car World Champion Marc Rheinard and World Famous Announcer Scotty Ernst were responsible for putting this great event on. Team Orion Factory Driver Ryan Cavalieri made the long trip over the pond with USA teammate Dustin Evans who would also be taking full advantage of running Team Orion equipment for this event.

Qualifying: Cavalieri went on to TQ overall in the 2wd Modified Buggy Class with his Team Orion powered Assocaited B4.1. Triple A-Mains: Dustin Evans would go onto win A-Main #1, then Cavalieri would win A-Main#2. The championship would come down to the third and final A-Main. At the start of the tone Cavalieri lead the field around with Evans close behind. Cavalieri and Evans were racing each other very hard and very clean. A slight bobble by Cavalieri allowed Evans by for the lead. With 2 laps remaining Cavalieri was looking for a way around Evans. Dustin kept it clean and would cross the finish line first to take home the win!
