Last weekend we attended round #2 of the Grenland Cup 1/8 El/IC in Skien, Norway. Just as in round #1 a few weeks ago we had time to run 2 sets of batteries in the morning free practice before qualifying started. The organizers had decided on control tires for the event so the morning free practice was used to get to know the new to us tires.
When qualifying started I was comfortably able to win the first 2 qualifiers to take the TQ for the finals. Just as last time we used the 3rd qualifier to test some different settings. And after doing some minor adjustments I was feeling confident that my setup would work well for the 3 x 12 min mains and I would have a good chance of taking home the victory.

The weather stayed nice and track conditions held up good throughout the finals this time. I found my rhythm early on in the finals starting from the #1 position and was able to bring home the victory in all 3 finals with my XRAY XB8E doing the only 21 lap runs of the day.
Once again my XRAY XB8E and ORCA electronics performed flawlessly throughout the entire race.
