The 2013 40+ European Buggy Championship took place at the Bistensee track in the very North of Germany. Rune Karlsen (Kyosho/OS) from Norway took the overall TQ after qualifying but Peter Harder (Hot Bodies/OS) and Mats Angseryd (Xray/OS) also looked very fast on track. The weather proofed to be very unreliable with a mix of rain showers and sun and this made things interesting over the final day. In the 45 minute main Peter managed to build a gab on Rune and Mats quite quickly and also took benefit of his two followers battling it out for second place. At the end Peter brought home the win and the 2013 40+ title some 20 seconds in front of Rune with Mats completing the podium only one lap down.
