Hagberg takes cold opening qualifier in Luxembourg

fri_hagbergg-620x372

Alexander Hagberg has topped a very cold opening round of qualifying at Round 5 of the Yokomo Euro Touring Series in Luxembourg.  A day which was effected by rain, the Xray driver topped the late qualifier from Yokomo’s Ronald Volker and Tamiya’s Marc Rheinard, the three covered by 2/10ths of a second.  With track conditions dry but extremely cold for the first of the weekend’s four scheduled qualifiers it was Hagberg’s team-mate Bruno Coelho who set the early TQ pace.  Starting second behind top seed Volker, the Portuguese driver would catch the German but on passing him would clip the curbing and put his car on its roof.  Continuing for one more lap once marshalled the always spectacular driver would then opt to pull off to save his tyres having lost almost 3-seconds due to his mistake.

fri_ronald-620x372

Rain haulted proceedings at Round 5 of the Yokomo Euro Touring Series in Luxembourg just as controlled practice was due to get underway at Mini Circuit “Ville de Luxembourg”.  Having started off a dry day, allowing two rounds of free practice to be completed, the heavy rain left race organisers with no choice but to stop the event with the free practice times now expected to determine the reseeding of the qualifying heats. The free practice times would produce no surprises with last year’s race winner Ronald Volker fastest from team-mate Yannic Prumper.  Behind them Xray’s Bruno Coelho completed the Top 3 in front of Marc Rheinard.

Swedish 1/10th Off-road Nationals Rd1 – Report

Swedish 1/10th Off-road Nationals Rd1 – Report

The opening round of the Swedish 1/10th Off-road Nationals was held in Söderhamn on a challenging and pretty low-grip astroturf track. The 2WD class saw some nice battles for the win between Niclas Maansson and young Malin Karlsen with Niclas coming out successful in the opening A-main while Malin was able to strike back in A2 following some small errors of Niclas. For the third and decisive A-main Malin was in a better position as she had scored a 1st and 2nd place while Niclas had a 1st and 3rd place to count. After the start both were running like a freight train until Niclas made a small mistake allowing Malin to get past and open up a small gap. But after having a few small bobbles of her own Niclas was able to catch up on Malin in the very last lap, taking a chance and jumping long on the table top in the winds to just barely put his front end ahead of Malin. Crossing the line both were just 1/10th of a second apart with Niclas coming in 1st.

I am happy to start driving with Schumacher Off Road cars for 2015-2016 season. I was given an opportunity to drive with factory support with really competitive cars on carpet and I couldn’t have said “no”. I am really looking forward to the EOS season and Finnish races and I hope that we can have a great year together.
