Steen Graversen wins Schumacher Cup

The “Schumacher” brothers Soren and Johan Eskildsen put a huge pressure on always fast Kyosho driver Steen Graversen in qualifying rounds for the modified class. Johan and Soren were able to make some very fast lap times, but some very small mistakes from Soren and Johan kept them away from pole position and this then went to Steen, old boy Troels Troelsen could place himself fourth after qualifying. In the three A-finals Steen was able to make a gap on Johan and Soren and was able to hold the distance to the Schumacher drivers through the finals.

Modified A-final result was following:
1. Steen Graversen
2. Johan Eskildsen
3. Soren Eskildsen
