Claus Ryeskov wins Rd3 of Danish Nats

Claus Ryeskov wins Rd3 of Danish Nats

The 3rd round of the Danish National was held on the last weekend of June and great weather greeted the competitors in Næstved on Zealand. After qualification it was Martin Lissau on pole followed by Martin Hansen 2nd and Claus Ryeskov in 3rd. The start of the finals saw Lissau, Hansen and Ryeskov maintain their starting order. Before the first fuel stop Hansen has overtaken Lissau after he went too wide into the corner after the straight. Just before the second refueling the leader ran out of fuel and it cost him two laps. Lissau was again leading the race and maintained it for most of the race , but suddenly there was a big bang. Lissau had battery problems and had driven straight into a post, destroying the car and putting him out of the race. Hansen ran out of full several more times and this meant that Ryeskov could drive safely home and win the race with Martin Hansen holding on for 2nd and Thomas Larsen in 3rd.

Thanks to Claus Ryeskov for the report.
