Round 3 Stock Sub finals report

Palle Hornum in round 3

The last sub finals of the stock class are now over and in the C-Final it was Carsten Madsen that took a late surprise win after long time leader Kenneth Malkussen was knocked off track when Matthias Lang tried to make a move on him that didnt work out. This left Carsten through into the lead with 30 seconds left to run and in the end he won by 2 seconds from Lang in 2nd and Malkussen in third. In the B-final it was a very straight forward race for Xray racer Palle Nornum who moved right into the lead at the start followed by Robitronic racer Ole Strandlyst. Despite being pressured by Ole the whole race, he could never get close enough to mount a challenge and so Hornum took the win from Strandlyst in 2nd and Nygaard up from 8th on the grid to 3rd.

Maddison Stock Champion – Wilck wins A Modified Leg 2

Modified Leg 2 final stand

Viktor Wilck has won the second leg of the Modified A-main after early leader Teemu Leino hit some dots on lap 7 while leading, dropping him down the order. While allowing Wilck through, it also allowed Steen Graversen through up into 2nd and a fast starting Marc Rheinard into 3rd spot. Despite this mistake Teemu could continue and in doing so he set the fastest lap of the final once more, a 15.83 second lap. The very start of the race saw Andy Moore roll coming out of the first corner and then on the following esses, which put him out of contention. The overall positions are now still wide open with Wilck now leading the standings by 2 points from Leino with 1 round left to be run.

Round 2 Mod Sub finals report

Juraj Hudy in the D-Final

The second round of the Mod sub mains was run just before the 2 first A-mains and in the C-final it was Hot Bodies racer Steffen Leinburger that took the win. At the beginning Atsushi Hara was knocked out of contention after a tip from a racer caused his body shell to catch, meaning he had to stop for attention. This seemed to inspire Hara to go quickly as he put in a 15.9 second lap trying to catch the leaders. Up Front Leinburger was coming under serious pressure from Jonas Adersson and Jonas Kaerup, the pair managing to close up on Steffen with 30 seconds to go, but he kept his cool and won, the top 3 covered by 1 second.

Simo Ahoniemi leg 2 action

In the B final it was Toni Rheinard that was the early leader from Marc Fisher and this was the way it stayed until 2 minutes in when Toni crashed allowing Simo Ahoniemi to sneak through into the lead. Once up front, he could extend his lead over eventual second place runner Shin Adachi who was 4 seconds behind after the 5 minutes. Toni managed to recover to 3rd.

Maddison and Leino take Round 1

A-Main Mod lineup

Teemu Leino has taken the first leg of the modified A-main final following a close race with Tamiya racer Viktor Wilck. The Team Orion sponsored Xray racer jumped straight into the lead from his pole position and controlled the race, also managing to set the fastest lap of the race, a 15.74 second lap. A race long battle Leino was given some breathing space when Wilck rolled going onto the straight with 30 seconds to go allowing him to finish just over a second in front at the end. Early in the race Groskamp was hit by an extremely fast starting Juho Levanen, this caused his body to tuck under and dropped him to last where he stayed for the rest of the leg. The biggest mover was Ronald Volker, the defending Champion managed to make his way up to 3rd spot at the end, finishing just ahead of 4th place Levanen.

The very next lap Thiele did the same thing and Jimmy got back into the lead which Maddison barely held onto for the rest of the race. On the last lap going onto the straight the pair came together and while Jimmy waited for Thiele Fadkte took advantage of the situation and slipped into 2nd, a half a second behind the winner and 3 tenths ahead of Thiele in 3rd.
