NT1 Wins Finnish Nationals R2



“On Sunday, June 8th it was time for our second nitro touring car championship race. The race was held at the Hyvinkää track, the largest asphalt track in Finland at 260m long. The track layout was quite easy and fast with medium grip. The weather was great but it was a little windy and dust was the problem during the race; the grip didn’t come up because of that. The race day started with two rounds of practice, followed by four rounds of qualifying. After the four rounds of qualifying it was again Tony Raikas who was on pole position only 0.8sec ahead of Team XRAY’s Pekka Koivula. Daniel Kalves was in a solid 3rd place after qualifying. So it was clear that Team XRAY was again very strong and had good chances to do well in the final.

Top four after Qualifyings:

1. Tony Raikas
2. Pekka Koivula XRAY NT1
3. Daniel Kalves XRAY NT1
4. Teemu Saarinen”
