Saturdays electric race was held in dry conditions and it was Juho Levanen, winner of the first 5 rounds of this series, that took the top qualifying spot with his Associated TC5. In the race it was Levanen all the way taking 2 final wins to claim the overall ahead of Sebastian Trzaska who got a win and a 2nd place to get 2nd overall, while Viljami Kutvonen edged out Teemu Leino for 3rd.

For Sundays 200mm race it was dry at the start of the day and this allowed Mugen racer Teemu Saarinen to claim the TQ for the event ahead of Pekka Koivula in 2nd. In the semi finals the rain started to fall and this caused all sorts of hassles for the racers on the track, with pole man Saarinen not taking to the track for the main final to save his car for his teams test in Madrid this week. In the final it was Kyosho racer Joni Minkkinen that ran out the clear winner, with a 17 lap advantage over Serpent racer Jomi Pulli in 2nd with his team mate Tom Kalves in 3rd.
