Swedish 1/10th Off-road Nationals Rd1 – Report

Swedish 1/10th Off-road Nationals Rd1 – Report

The opening round of the Swedish 1/10th Off-road Nationals was held in Söderhamn on a challenging and pretty low-grip astroturf track. The 2WD class saw some nice battles for the win between Niclas Maansson and young Malin Karlsen with Niclas coming out successful in the opening A-main while Malin was able to strike back in A2 following some small errors of Niclas. For the third and decisive A-main Malin was in a better position as she had scored a 1st and 2nd place while Niclas had a 1st and 3rd place to count. After the start both were running like a freight train until Niclas made a small mistake allowing Malin to get past and open up a small gap. But after having a few small bobbles of her own Niclas was able to catch up on Malin in the very last lap, taking a chance and jumping long on the table top in the winds to just barely put his front end ahead of Malin. Crossing the line both were just 1/10th of a second apart with Niclas coming in 1st.

1. Niclas Maansson
