The first round of the XRS Finland was held at Fullspeed RC indoor track in Vantaa over the weekend. The layout was the same as the nationals a couple weeks ago with a good grip right from the start. The finals had a different format as usual with the finishing order of each A-main becoming the start order of the next A-main. In the Touring Modified class, Karri Salmela took the win in front of Joel Valander (XRAY), coming from P4, and Pekko Iivonen in third.
In the Pro Touring Stock class it was Leevi Martikainen (XRAY) who brought home the win from Heinonen Arto in second and Lasse Ilvessalo (XRAY) in third.
