Henriksen wins Danish 1/8th Nationals

Henriksen wins Danish 1/8th Nationals

The last round of the Danish 1/8th scale nationals was run at ODRC club in Odense. The track is small and has no space for error’s so it’s technically challenging to drive 1/8 on this track and it’s normally very slippery too. There was some rain overnight and it actually cleaned the track so the grip was better on Sunday. After 5 rounds Shepherd driver Henrik Christensen was leading with only 2 points, and the Danish point system also gives points for TQ, so when fellow Shepherd-Novarossi racer Jon Pedersen took the TQ on Saturday there was only one point between 1st and 2nd place. He took the pole-position in front of Henrik Christensen and Mikael Skals in third position.

The 30 minutes final was run on Sunday afternoon and the weather was a little cold but it stayed dry all day. From the start Henrik had the lead but after 3 min Jon Pedersen managed to pass him and kept the lead until the 2nd fuel stop. Afterwards Jon got some problems and went out for several rounds so Henrik took over the lead again. Although 2nd placed Mikael Skals increased the pressure on the leading car Henrik was the winner at the end. The final result for the Danish championship was first place Henrik Christensen, second place Jon Pedersen and third place Thomas Larsen all using Shepherd Velox V8.
