Leipzig: Dobrovitz shines in LeipzigA smiling Jozsef Dobrovitz left the arena of the FEI World Cup Driving competition in Leipzig this evening after he put down a fantastic performance which none of his competitors was able to beat. Wild card competitor and first starter IJsbrand Chardon drove a decent clear round which took him to the second place. Theo Timmerman drove his borrowed team to the fifth place.
Dobrovitz drove very fast and was a little lucky, but passed the finish line six seconds faster than Ijsbrand Chardon. A high placing in Leipzig is Dobrovitz’ only chance to a starting place for the Final in Geneva. Chardon watched the performance of the former owner of his Lipizzaner team from the sideline and was pleased with his own round: “I am happy that I stayed clear, I do not want to let them go full speed yet. I have nothing to loose here, I cannot earn World Cup points because I compete with a wild card. This is the perfect opportunity to turn this team to my hand even more.”
Daniel Würgler set a nicely driven clear round and came third, ahead of Christoph Sandmann who had two knock downs.
