Adrien Bernsten wins Norwegian Championships

Adrien Bernsten wins Norwegian Championships

Very late in the season, at the beginning of October, the Norwegian Championship 1:8th scale IC track was held at the Hvervenbukta Raceway in Oslo, which was the venue for the Euros back in 2003.  Despite cold and humid conditions the fastest laptime in practise was 12,65 sec which is below the track record from 2001. Unfortunately it rained during the night and on the morning of the race day most of the race was run under wet or semi wet conditions. Shepherd racer Adrian Berntsen already showed his strong performance during qualifying by winning every single qualifying round and taking the TQ for the 45 min final in front of Lars Haugen, Arntzen Erik and Helge Johannson. The final could be started under dry conditions and Adrian showed a perfect performance leading from start to finish. Besides the fuel stops only 7 laptimes out of 191 were over 14,000 sec with the best lap being a 13,503. With a gap of 4 laps he crossed the finishing line in first position in front of  Lars Haugen (Mugen) and Rasch-Olsen Frode (Mugen).
