Cristensen & Ström win Nordic Champs

Cristensen & Ström win Nordic Champs

Last weekend in Sweden saw the Nordic Championships for 1/10th and 1/8th scale cars run at the Vast-8 track in Gotheburg. In qualifying it was Kyosho racer Roland Ström that took the 1/10th scale top qualifying spot while in the 1/8th scale class it was again a Kyosho, this time driven by Marcus Lindner that took the class TQ. In the 1/10th scale final it was a win for Xray NT1 racer Martin Cristensen, who took the lead after pole man Ström ran out of fuel just before the end, while in the lead, eventually finishing 2 laps behind in the 2nd position while in 3rd spot it was a close race between eventual 3rd place finisher Niklas Håkansson and 4th placed Per Ola Hard, the latter losing a lot of time in a crash mid race. In the 1/8th scale race, a lot of the front runners like Mikael Fransson, Martin Christensen, Christoffer Hallborg and pole man Marcus Lindner all ran into problems which allowed Roland Ström, racing a Kyosho to take the win by 5 seconds from 2nd placed Serpent driver, Bengt Andersson, while Niklas Johansson came home in 3rd, 1 lap behind the leading pair.
