Finnish Nat Champ Rd3 – 10th Offroad


Team Durang reports – “The third round of the Finnish Championship was held in Vaasa. The hosting club was Vaasa´s UA, who already held a perfect Euros in 2007 and will be hosting 2011 Worlds. The weekend started on Friday the 10th of September with a free practice. Saturday was a racing day of 2wd’s and Sunday was for 4wd’s. On the sunday morning the weather was quite wet, because we had some slight overnight rain. I passed my first run of controlled practise, because the track was very wet and slippery. The weather and the track conditions got better all the time, so I run the second round of the controlled practise. The balance of the car felt great and I was very happy with my pace. Round 1 – The track was drying and it would probably be the fastest round of the day as the track would get slightly slower, because more rain was coming. I hadn’t enough pace because I took the first round too carefully. I also made one mistake, and due to that I drove to a wet spot and spinned out. There was a tight battle of the first place so Karri Salmela and Jarno Siltanen dropped me to the 3rd place.”
