King of Europe kicked off in Greinbach, Austria with more than 10,000 spectators in attendance! Qualifying at the Greinbach PS Racing Center was wild with Adam Kerenyi taking home first place followed by Francesco Conti and Benjamin Boulbes in third. Shockingly Dmitry Illyuk qualified outside the Top 10 which is unlike him! His Monster Energy teammate Steve Biagioni managed to lock in 7th at his first ever event on this Austria circuit.
Moving into the main event Francesco Conti, 2013 KOE champion, was eliminated in Top 16 when he made a big mistake in this battle. On the way to a big victory Adam Kereyni managed to eliminate big name drivers in Europe such as Calin Ciortan and took Dmitriy Illyuk to an OMT when Illyuk blew his engine! Benjamin Boulbes, who was still trying to get used to his new LS engine, made it all the way up to the semifinals,where he was defeated by Monster driver Steve Biagioni!
Dmitriy Illyuk inspected his engine after the issue in his Final Four battle and discovered a rod bearing went out. This prevented him from running in the third place battle with Benjamin Boulbes so he went on to take 3rd place at Round 1. The final offered the audience an all-out battle, between Adam Kerenyi and Steve Biagioni. Both drivers displayed an excellent set of skills while out on the track, but Adam managed to just stay above Steve, and took the win in both runs, thus winning the event itself.
