Henrik Christensen takes Danish 1/8th title

Henrik Christensen takes Danish 1/8th title

The last round of the Danish 1/8th scale nationals was run at GRRC club in Grewe. The track has a technical challenging layout and some rain on Friday & Saturday did not help drivers to get used to it. Unfortunately the weather forecast also effected the numbers of entries so only a few racers showed up. On Saturday afternoon championship leader Christensen showed that he aims for the 4th victory in the running season by taking the pole-position in front of fellow Shepherd-Novarossi racer Jon Pedersen with John Jessen in third position. The 30 minute long final was run on Sunday afternoon and the temperatures were really cold but it did stay dry throughout the final. From the start Henrik had some problems with the engine so after 4 min Jon Pedersen went in front of Henrik Christensen and John Jessen. Henrik’s chances of another victory was destroyed following a 10 minute long pit stop after being hit by a another driver. Jon Pedersen never looked back for the rest of the race and with this result, he had enough points to secure himself the overall 2nd place in the championship. Although he had some problems, Christensen had enough points to defend his championship lead, claiming the Danish National 1/8th Scale Championship title.
