Hard & Fransson win Swedish Championships 2011


The racing club in Vaxjo hosted the 2011 Swedish 1/8 scale and 200mm nitro on-road championships. After practice on Thursday Friday it was time for qualifying on Saturday with Markus Hellquist taking TQ in the 200mm class with his Serpent 733 followed by Mikael Fransson, Per-Ola Hard and Tomas Andersson, all of them driving Serpent’s 733. In 1/8 scale Mikael Fransson (Serpent 966) took the TQ honours, followed by Niklas Johansson (Mugen),  Patrick Sahlin (Mugen) and Marcus Lindner (Serpent 966).

Sunday brought a change in the weather and the level of traction as it rained. But the drivers had enough time to prepare for the new conditions with tires, engines etc. Come finale time, Markus Hellquist was not able to make use of his TQ spot as Per-Ola Hard took the race win in front of Mikael Fransson, Tomas Andersson, Serpent 733, Staffan Karlsson and Markus Hellquist (all Serpent 733). In 1/8 scale Mikael Fransson (Serpent) was able to secure himself the championship with Marcus Linder (Serpent) and Bjorn Ohlsson (Mugen) completing the podium. Magnus Bengtsson (Mugen) went fourth with P-H Persson in fifth place.
