Round 7 of the Danish on road Championship were held at Hillerød Banen last weekend. Martin Lissau and Martin Christensen had done very well at the WC in Portugal but for National title honors it was Xray NT1 driver Claus Ryeskov who was heading for the overall 2008 national title. Saturday’s qualifying sessions were run under sunny conditions and after the 4 rounds it was Martin Lissau who took the TQ from Xray team mates Martin Christensen in 2nd and Ryeskov in 3rd, with No. Hansen in 4th. The weather remained dry on Sunday and to win the overall title Claus needed 2 more points than Kyosho driver Martin No. Hansen, so it was to be a very interesting 45 minutes final. After an intense fight for 2nd place Claus Ryeskov just managed to take runner up spot behind Lissau and with Hansen taking 4th Claus who could claim the overall title.

Following the surprise move by top young British Associated driver, and European Junior Champion (above), to Xray, Team Associated representative Craig Drescher has issued the following statement regarding the move.
Team Associated would like to announce and explain the mutual departure of Elliot Boots from Team Associated/CML. Elliot started with Team Associated at the beginning of the production RC8 project and greatly assisted Team Associated and CML in testing, promoting and supporting Associated’s first venture in to the 1/8th scale market. As with all new projects there were vehicle, electrical and engine problems that skewed results and caused frustration for young Elliot in the late 2007 and early 2008 seasons.
