Indoor Baltic Championship Rd2 – Report

The second round of the Indoor Baltic Championship was hosted by RC Mulk and held in the Poltsamaa Felixhall facility. The three day event saw drivers from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Finland and the 2WD Buggy class saw Karl Kasekamp topping the practice sessions, followed closely by Hendrik Lainemae, Rainer Ressar and Robin Ilus. Qualifying would see quite a few winners on top, with Kasekamp taking Q1 and Q5, Ressar winning Q3 and Q4 and Lainemae taking Q2. That’s also how they would line up on the grid for the finals. All three legs would be full of exciting overtakes and lots of tight racing, but Kasekamp would show his speed pulling away from the field after the first few laps. 2nd spot would be obtained by Rainer Ressar, and newcomer Karl Martinson showed great pace to come in 3rd in the end.

Over in 4WD and after five rounds of practice it was Rainer Ressar on top followed by Rihard Lainemae and Karl Kasekamp. The trend would continue in qualifying, with Ressar winning four of the five rounds. The finals saw a lot of lead changes due to the technicality and the huge amounts of grip on the track. Getting past lapped traffic also was very difficult for the drivers. After the three final legs it would be Kasekamp taking overall victory closely followed by Lainemae and Ressar.
