Martin Sørlie wins Norwegian Cup Series

Martin Sørlie wins Norwegian Cup Series

Last weekend the final round of the Norwegian Cup Series was held at Radøy RC’s track, about an hour away from the coastal city of Bergen. It was a bumpy astro track with high grip, and although this place is far away from most drivers and often has bad weather, participation was surprisingly high. In 2wd Martin Sørlie running his Team Orion Powered TLR 22 was nearly guaranteed the win in the Norwegian cup with the most points, and with a TQ & 2nd place finish he did so with a 75 point lead ahead of Frode Pedersen and Niklas Bjørkå Roos, both running 22’s as well. In 4wd it was a lot more competition, as there were five drivers theoretically in contention of the cup win. The points from four out of five races count, and having run and won only two races, Martin would need to win this last race with his Team Orion Powered Yokomo Bmax to be able to win the cup. Qualifying second on the grid and winning two of the mains, meant he did his job. 2nd and 3rd place went to Niklas Bjørkå Roos (Schumacher) and Arne-Peder Flesvik (Yokomo).

Thanks to Martin Sørlie for the report.
