Hellquist & van Elling win At South Swedish Indoor Series Rd3


The third round of the South Swedish Indoor Series was this time combined with the Middle Swedish Electric Series. It was hosted by Miracl at their great facilities just outside of the small Swedish city Åtvidaberg. The track is put together on a nice but older type of ETS Carpet with a darker gray colour, instead of the more recent black one. The traction started out low during the Friday free practice, but soon enough went up to a fair amount of traction. And continued to be alright, but not superhigh for the rest of the race during Saturday.

In Touring Modified XRAY’s Markus Hellquist was the man to beat. The other drivers couldn’t put any pressure on Markus, and he managed to win all rounds of practice, qualification and finals. Team Associated’s Daniel Carlsson locked down second place and Serpent’s Andreas Johansson secured the 3rd spot.

In Formula XRAY driver Fredrik von Elling first won the qualifying, where the best round out of three was counted. Then he proceeded to win all the finals with ease from Pekka Markkula in second and Bengt Röjder in third.
