Team Shepherd reports – “Last weekend the first round of the Danish Nationals took place at the Odense RC MiniRace track. I was also there to compete the first time with the Velox V10. Unfortunately the weather was not so nice which limited the possibilities to practise. Nevertheless I had a good feeling and was confident for the first round of qualifying. With a new track record I clocked the fastest time. Right after the first round was done rain arrived again and the rest of the qualifying was cancelled. The finals were scheduled for Sunday and finally the track was dry. I did some setup changes and was really satsified with the car after the final practise. Right from the start of the final I pulled away and never looked back. My Velox V10 powered by IDM engines ran flawless and after 30 minutes I crossed the finishing line in first position.
So after the finale the top 3 were:
1: Martin Lissau (Shepher/IDM/GRP)
2: Claus Rygeskov
3: Martin NO Hansen
Also in the 1/8th scale class Team Shepherd took the win. Henrik Christensen had the lead from the start to the end, his fellow Shepherd racer Hans Andersen finished 2nd.
Top 3 after the 1/8th scale final:
1: Henrik Christensen Shepherd
2: Hans Andersen Shepherd
3: John Jessen
Thanks to Odensen Mini RC club to run this event so perfect. Thanks to Shepherd, IDM and GRP for the support for this race. – Martin Lissau”
