Kennie Ekenstierna takes 1/8 Off-road Swedish Cup

Kennie Ekenstierna takes 1/8 Off-road Swedish Cup

The Swedish 1/8th Off-road Cup was run last weekend at the technical multi-surface track of Höör. Rainy weather on Saturday morning meant the organisers had to skip the first round of practice in order to prepare the track. The qualifying saw a battle between Christoffer Svensson, Johan Balsberg and Kennie Ekenstierna with the better end for Kennie who scored two round wins and ultimately set the fastest time to take TQ.

Kennie then also went on to grab the pole position for the final by a second but come the start of the main the Xray driver soon dropped to second place only to take the lead back a couple of laps later. As Kennie was steaming through the race there was a closer battle between Balsberg and Henrik Nilsson for 2nd. In the end Henrik Nilsson was able to close the gap to just a few seconds on the last lap, but Balsberg kept his cool under the pressure and could collect the 2nd place behind Kennie Ekenstierna.

Final results:
1. Kennie Ekenstierna
2. Johan Balsberg
3. Henrik Nilsson
4. Mikael Palsson
5. Mikael Svensson
6. Boklund Simon
7. Jessica Palsson
8. Martin Sjöberg
