Nielsen & Graversen win Danish Nats Rd2

Nielsen & Graversen win Danish Nats Rd2

We received a brief report from the 2nd round of 1/10th scale electric touring Danish Nationals that was held last weekend at the GRCC’s large track in Greve. This national round saw 40 drivers in attendance, with 21 competitors competing in 19 turns and 19 competitors in the modified division.

In the 19 turn class no one had thought that Nicolai Nielsen would have any competition, but two racers from Jutland, Carsten Madsen and Thomas Larsen, took the long trip to the race and really gave Nicolai a hard challenge. In addition there were a couple of quick racers from Seeland that took up the challenge, such as Asger Thyregod who would eventually start 3rd. As to the final results, there was never doubt about the winner as Nicolai is very stabile at the moment and could easily take the win. The following positions however had some great battles, that saw Carsten Madsen take 2nd place overall and Thomas Larsen in 3rd. The B-main was won by Dennis Lou and C-main by Villy Lehmann.

Nielsen & Graversen win Danish Nats Rd2

As in the first round of the Modified nationals there was a unusually big crowd of competitors, and the qualifying was very tight, with many racers in with a shout of making the A-main. It was however Kyosho driver Steen Graversen that was once again in his own league being the only driver to make 22 laps in qualifying to take the pole position by 8 seconds from 2nd placed qualifier Jonas Kærup, while Jonas Anderson from Sweden and Søren Eskildsen rounded out the top 4. In the finals Steen was unchallenged and could wrap up the overall pretty easily, but it was the battle for the other podium spots that was of interest and this saw Jonas Kærup take 2nd place overall ahead of Jonas Anderson in 3rd. Emil Rath took the victory in B-main and Mike Christensen the victory in the C-main.
