Victor Christensen dominates Danish Stock series

Twelve year old Victor Christensen rounded off his winning streak in the Danish indoor TC series at the final event held in Skive recently. With a 3 heat win in the Stock class (17.5T, blinking), Victor took a total of 4 wins out of the 5 rounds and could also claim the title as overall winner of the Stock Class with a maximum score. In the first 3 rounds competition was close and Victor was racing his MI4CX and was battling some skilled (and sometimes older) drivers. For the last two rounds Victor had received the new MI4CXL which improved his lap times considerably and resulted in something close to shear dominance. In round 4 his new MI4CXL was assembled the night before the race and despite the lack of testing, things was going so well for Victor that he actually lapped all other competitors in the mains.

For the final round 5 things started out differently since the track had very low traction. A lot of set up changes only made things worse and as things progressed and the track developed more grip, the set up ended at the starting point with a softer spring set up as the only change of the day. Victor TQ’d, and was the only driver doing 20 laps and so the mains were sort of a formality. A great day for Victor and his MI4CXL. The new Schumacher car and the ease of setting it up is a huge part of Victors wins and practically being the only Schumacher driver in the tournament, no technical support and experience has been available. Victor has relied on own skills, some help from Ulrich Rasmussen and the Set Up sheets available on the Schumacher site. The car is equipped with Speed Passion ESC and motor and CS-Electronic LiPo.

Thanks to Ulrich Rasmussen for the update.
