Swedish Electric On-road Nationals – Report

The Swedish Electric On-road Nationals were hosted recently at the Skelleftea MS in the northern part of the country. The event took place in Touring Modified, Touring 13.5T ProStock, Formula and 1/12th Modified classes on a purpose-built track using gray carpet. In Touring Modified class it was Markus Hellquist who set the early pace but he was closely followed by Viktor Wilck in all of the qualifiers. The finals again were hard-fought and it wasn’t decided until the final leg as Marcus and Viktor both scored a win in the opening legs. In the end it was Markus Hellquist (Xray) with the win and the overall title as Marcus von Elling came in 2nd in A3, however he had to settle for 4th in the overall standing behind Serpent’s Viktor Wilck 2nd and Team Associated’s Daniel Carlsson 3rd.

In ProStock 13.5 it was Marcus von Elling (Xray) who set the pace early on in practice and never let go of the number 1 sticker. He took a clear P1 after the qualifiers and he managed to claim the victories in the first two A-mains as well, securing himself the overall win. Daniel Carlsson (Team Associated) came in 2nd from Alexander Wågstedt (Xray) 3rd.

In the Formula class Xray driver Fredrik von Elling took the TQ spot and started as P1 into the finals. The A-mains became a really close 3-car battle and Fredrik came out as the final podium finisher when the dust had settled as Pekka Markkula (Roche) obtained the runner-up spot behind newly-crowned champion, Nathan Parker (Serpent)

The 1/12th class saw Markus Hellquist (Xray) taking the TQ, however after the finals it was Niclas Nilsson (CRC) with the win as Markus wasn’t able to keep up the pace. Markus Andreasson (Team Associated) rounded out the podium in 3rd.
