Report by Georg Ellingsen
Round 3 of the 200mm IC Track Norwegian Nationals was held at the track in Valdres, where the National Championship will be held later this year. This is a special track with about 4 meters height difference from the one side to the other, and four 180° turns.

The weather forecast for the weekend showed rain but there was sun on Friday so I decided to take the trip one day early for some practice on a dry track to find a set-up for the upcoming championship in August.

Saturday morning forecast rain so I prepared the car for wet racing. The car ran smoothly for the qualifiers and I took 2nd place in the finals behind Helge Johannessen.

For the finals it was slightly lighter weather at the start, but then it started to rain again. At the start of the final I took over 1st place ahead of Helge and held the lead for about 25-30 minutes when I hit a board and the left rear tire got damaged. I chose to change the tire and so I lost my lead to Helge by 4 laps at the end of 45 minutes. Helge won with 3 laps ahead of me.
