289

“The last round of the Danish 1/8th scale nationals was run at GRRC club in Grewe. The track has technically challenging layout and some rain on Friday & Saturday did not help either to get used to it. Unfortunately the weather forecast also effected the numbers of entries so only a few racers showed up. As championship leader Shepherd-Novarossi racer Henrik Christensen had to best chance to take the overall victory. On Saturday afternoon Christensen showed that he aims for the 4th victory in the running season. He took the pole-position in front of fellow Shepherd-Novarossi racer Jon Pedersen and John Jessen in third position. The 30 minutes final was run on Sunday afternoon and the temperatures were really cold but it stay’s dry all the final. From start Henrik had some problems with the engine so after 4 min Jon Pedersen went in front of Henrik Christensen and John Jessen. Henrik’s chances of another victory was destroyed after a 10 min long pit stop because he was hit by a another driver. Jon Pedersen never looked back for the rest of the race and with this result, he had enough points to secure himself the overall 2nd place in the Danish 1/8 scale nitro championship. Although he had some problems, Christensen had enough points to defend his championship lead, claiming the Danish National 1/8th Scale Championship title.

The final positions in the Danish Championship:

1: Henrik Christensen — Velox V8 & Novarossi
2: Jon Pedersen — Velox V8 & Novarossi
3: John Jessen”
