Malin Karlsen takes OMK Fall Classic title

Malin Karlsen takes OMK Fall Classic title

The eight and final round of the OMK Fall Classic title was recently held at the OMK astro turf track. As usual the race format was three rounds of qualifying with triple mains and much like the previous round the track was once again soaking wet and in combination with the low temperatures traction was really low. Malin Karlsen (Xray) took all qualifiers in style to grab the pole position for the A-mains. Malin was also in control of things in the opening A-main despite some bobbles due to the slippery surface but she walked away with a convincing first win of the evening. A2 then was a different affair as, after opening a small gap on the field, she got caught out by a pipe after loosing traction, causing her to loose the lead and also valuable time. Getting her head down she quickly was able to fight for the lead again but the leader would not be easy to pass, so Malin waited until what she thought was the final lap to make an attack at the table top jump leading into the last corner and she even managed to win the drag race to the finish line until both realised that they crossed the finish line tenth of a second before the time was up. With her opponent realising the fact earlier Malin had to settle for second in leg 2. For A3 Malin decided to make up for the confusion earlier so she laid down a flawless run to take the win almost a lap ahead of the field to take the win, the overall victory at round eight and with it the OMK Fall Classic title. Marius Kristensen (Serpent) would end the day on the two spot from Morten Bremsrud (Team Associated) in third.
