Pontus Larsson wins Middle Swedish Cup Rd3

Round 3 of the Middle Swedish Cup was held this past weekend with the event being hosted by the Borås MRK club. In the 1/8th Nitro Buggy class the race for the overall TQ was on between Emil Magnusson, Victor Gunnarsson and Pontus Larsson. In the end it was Pontos who took the TQ tie on points with Victor while Emil had to settle for 3rd after the qualifiers. The start of the main final held some difficulties for the TQ holder. Coming from the 3 spot on the grid he dropped down the field courtesy of some mishaps. Dropping down as low as 11th, Emil got his head down and already on lap seven he was back in 2nd again and after the first fuel stop he started to catch up to leader Victor Gunnarsson. The unfortunate Victor would make to big mistakes later that forced him to retire which made way for Pontus Larsson (Serpent) who would hold onto the lead for the remainder of the race to bring home the win some two laps in front of Alexander Castlind (Team Associated) while Pontus Magnusson (Kyosho) rounded out the top 3 result.
