Daniel Kobbevik dominates Norwegian EP Buggy Nats Rd3

The third round of the Norwegian 1/10 Electric Off-road Nationals was held at the amazing Innherrad Raceway in Levanger. While the track and area was well prepared the weather was not as it changed a lot from cold, wet, dry and everything in-between, making setup and tyre choice a big gamble. The weekend kicked off with the 2WD rounds on Saturday and instantly Daniel Kobbevik was in control of things, taking all qualifiers to line up 1st on the grid in front of local hero, Roy Gjemble.

In the A-mains it was again Daniel who was in control of things and by winning A1 and A2 he secured himself the overall win from Roy 2nd and Alexander 3rd.

Sunday 4WD day was pretty much the same when it came to weather, setup and tyres. In the qualifiers it was again Daniel who would lead the way by taking all qualifying rounds to take the overall TQ with the fastest laps and quickest qualifier of the day.

The finals then were pretty much a blueprint of the 2WD event, however with even faster lap times. Daniel went on to win all three A-main encounters for the overall while also being the only driver being able to score 11-laps runs. The fight for the runner-up spot was alone one as Roy was in control and behind him it was Oyster Doler who would end the day on the 3 spot.

Thanks to Magne Kobbevik for the report.
