Last weekend the Nordic championship for 1/10th scale 2wd and 4wd buggy was held. The event was blessed with the best possible weather on both Saturday and Sunday. After the two practice heats Otto Ausfelt was the fastest driver only .3 seconds before XRAY driver Kennie Ekenstierna and on third place was Nicolaysen from Norway trailing by one second. In the qualifiers Kennie Ekenstierna was able to win three out of the four rounds and was the TQ of the day after some impressive driving and close battles primarily with Otto Ausfelt.
