Christoffer Svensson dominates NXC 08

Christoffer Svensson dominates NXC 08

Neo Buggy are reporting on a fantastic weekend for Christoffer Svensson at the Nordic Xray Challenge, who dominated the whole race from start to finish with double TQ, double pole position and wins in both the buggy and truggy classes. In the buggy main, Svensson took the lead from pole before dropping to 2nd on lap 2, and then retaking the lead before driving away. Hazlewood battled early on with Gustafsson, with Gus eventually opening a gap from Hazlewood, but was unable to fully catch a hard-charging Svensson. In the end Gustafsson was denied a worthy second place by clutch issues and this left Hazlewood in 2nd and Mikael Palsson in 3rd. In the truggy class Svensson started out front but was passed early by Hazlewood, and then proceeded to battle each other for a while, but fast consistent driving and good pit stops gifted Svensson the lead on lap 16. Hazlewood had 2nd place wrapped up until lap 38 where center diff issues forced him to retire and this allowed Henrik Nilsson up into 2nd and Niclas Brunsberg in 3rd.
