David Ronnefalk takes Swedish Cup Series

David Ronnefalk takes Swedish Cup Series

Last weekend the fourth and final round of the Swedish Cup Series took place at the track of Borås MRK. Normally a place where rain comes into play, however this year it was not like that as the sun was out all weekend. The overall winner of the cup was going to be decided with a few guys having a shot at it. However the race was pretty much dominated by David Ronnefalk as he TQ’ed every round of qualifying and later on started from pole position into the final. The spectators then witnessed a close and fun battle between David and Kennie Ekenstierna towards the end with David coming out on top ultimately. This meant the overall cup would went to David as he won all three races he attended after missing one round due to a date clash.

Thanks to David Ronnefalk for sending the report.

Aaron Stringer doubles at debut

Aaron Stringer doubles at debut

Over 70 drivers made their way to Maryborough, QLD for the Wide Bay Weekender Challenge. Reds Racing’s newly signed Aaron Stringer was on fire during qualifying as he TQ’ed all Buggy qualifying rounds and won three out of the four Truggy qualifiers to take the overall TQ in both classes. Unfortunately the weather moved in for the finals and while the host club tried hard to clean up the track, mother nature won and the event was called off and the results were based off qualifying handing Aaron the overall win in both Nitro Buggy and Truggy while Reds Racing teammate Shane Freiberg took the runner-up spots behind Aaron.

The Nitro Truggy class again saw Shane Kelly taking the victory, this time from Chris Lander and Dragen Bjelic.
