NT1 Wins 2010 Norwegian Championship

226

Xray reports – “The 2010 Norwegian Championship was held at Hverven Bukta Raceway in Oslo (August 7-8) on their newly-paved racetrack, which was the venue for the 1/8th scale IC Euros back in 2003. The new ashpalt gave us a faster track than ever before with very good grip, but also a lot of tire wear. So, the big question was what we were gonna do in the finals. After the first qualifying round I claimed the TQ with a 30 lap run @ 7:07:149 ahead of Helge Johannesen (2nd), XRAY driver Tom Erik Haaversen (3rd) and XRAY driver Werner Ersland (4th). The track was faster for the second run, and both Helge and I were both having a faster run than I had in the first run. However, a mistake by me made me lose 7 seconds so Helge claimed the fastest run so far in the event with a 30 lap run @ 7:05:104. Georg Ellingsen also improved his first run by putting the 4th fastest overall run after 2 of 5 rounds of qualifying.”
