Elias Johansson wins 4WD class at WBC Rd1

The opening round of the Swedish WBC Cup was hosted by the Karlskrona MRK club and held at the HB/Orion Race Track in Kallinge. In the 4WD Buggy class Elias Johansson lined up 1st on the grid in front of Jesper Rasmussen, Oskar Levin, and Alexander Landen, who rounded out the top 4 after the qualifiers. In A1 and A2 it was pretty much smooth sailing for Team Associated driver Elias Johansson and after taking the day’s win early he would sit out the final A-main to make way for the other pilots who fought for the remaining podium spots. Alexander Landen (Xray) had a DNF in A1 and a 2nd place finish in A2 and so he needed a good result to finish on the podium. Therefore he started off a little bit on the safe side for the first few laps, by that Oskar and Jesper were able to get a gap of a couple of laps, and they had a battle of their own. When things had settled in and Alexander had a little bit of a gap to the 4th placed car he started to reel in on the leaders and close the gap. When he was just within striking distance, the leaders came together and Alexander could go through to take the lead and he was able to maintain it until the end and by that securing the 2nd spot overall in front of Team Associated’s Jesper Rasmussen.
