This leaves the class open for youngsters like Petter Berntsen and Jorn Borgevad to battle it out with the older Knut Enger and Rune “I got lucky” Berget. After Qualification Petter Berntsen was the man who sat on the pole, and after some exiting finals Petter managed to secure the win and get a good start of the new season.

The fight was to be between Johannessen and Andreassen followed by Georg Ellingsen, which was the top 3 after qualification. This was to be the result after 3 finals too but due a DQ for Eirik Andreassen meant he lost his best final run and ended up in 4th, promoting Adrian Berntsen to 3rd.
