Mikael Fransson takes Swedish 1/8th IC Track title

The recent Swedish Nitro On-road Nationals were held at the big and fast Örebro track with drivers from Sweden, Norway and Denmark in attendance. Saturday was pretty much washed away by the rain and so it was decided to have two additional rounds of qualifying on Sunday morning. In the 1/8th class some drivers decided to race anyway and so the overnight TQ was held by Mikael Fransson from Bengt Andersson. Sunday started off nice and dry and the two remaining rounds would be held in good track conditions. Again Mikael was the fastest in front of Norwegian top driver Tom-Erik Haaversen. Due to the revised time schedule the Super Pole format was cancelled and the top 4 drivers would directly proceed into the A-main with Tom-Erik Haaversen, Magnus Bengtsson and Bengt Andersson being the lucky ones to score a direct spot on the grid behind TQ holder Mikael. In the final Mikael Fransson was able to pull away directly from the start. Behind him it was a close battle between Magnus and Tom-Erik until the latter ran into problems. This meant Magnus could take the runner-up spot in front of Per-Ola Hård who ran a solid final and finished 3rd overall.
