Norwegian Cup Rd2 – Report

The second round of the Norwegian Cup was run at the Lucky Raceway in Fredrikstad, host of the 2015 Nordic Championships. Classes run were Touring Modified, 13.5T Stock Blinky and 1/12th on-road and in the Modified class Helge Johannessen took the TQ with a prototype ARC R11 car in front of Petter Berntsen (Xray) and Andreas Daving (Schumacher). In the supporting Stock class Fredrik Haavardsrud (ARC) came out fastest after the qualifiers from Lars Haugen (Xray) and Trygve Berntsen (Gizmo). Finally in the 1/12th pan car class Lars Haugen (Xray) took the TQ from Lars Tommy Berntsen (Xray) and Trygve Bull Freng (Xray).

The finals promised to be a 2-way affair between Helge and Petter but Helge had pretty easy runs to take the overall win from Petter with Andreas securing the final podium spot in third.
