Viljami Kutvonen wins at Russian Touring Masters

The 2015 Russian Touring Masters was held in Agalatavo, around 10km outside of St. Petersburg. The race attracted the fastest drivers from Russia and fast Fin Viljami Kutvonen. The grip was expected to be low so Sweep 24 tyres were chosen as handout tyre for the event, which proved to be the right choice in the end. Right from the start Viljami Kutvonen topped the timing sheets followed by Georgy Chmigal in 2nd, Kirill Trofimov 3rd and Denis Zuykov 4th.

I’m very happy to be a part of the Shepherd Team in 2015 after 4 very successful years with them. Since my Euro B title in 2011 the Velox V10 was constantly improved which allowed me to reach the top10 of the Euros A in the last 2 years. I’m looking forward to attending the Euros in Izmir, all ENS races and the German nationals together with the rest of team as we are always having a great time.

Danish 1/8th Off-Road Nationals Rd1 – Report

Danish 1/8th Off-Road Nationals Rd1 – Report

The first round of the Danish 1/8th Off-Road nationals attracted a total of around 90 drivers from Denmark, Germany, Sweden and Norway to compete in Nitro Buggy, Nitro Truggy and Electric Buggy classes. The track layout was very challenging and fun to race with a combination of a very big jump and difficult landing section on the straight, an “American wupti section” and some tight and flowing corners and sweepers. In Nitro Buggy it was the Xray duo of Mike Gosvig and Peter Harder who were fighting hard throughout all qualification rounds. Mike won the first round with 0.2 seconds on Peter and the second round with a 2 second margin. In round three Peter was leading until the last lap when a crash on the big jump handed Mike the win and a well-deserved TQ. In the last qualifier Peter turned the fastest lap of the day and scored the fastest qualification run to have him start from pole in the semifinal B. Mike and Peter then went on to win their respective semifinals to have them line up up front for the main final.
