Race Report by Claus Ryeskov
Nordic championship 2018 was held 26th-29th July in Lidkobing, Sweden. This time we raced all rc classes, 1:10 electric, 1:10 / 1:8 IC and GT / TC 1:5 classes together.

The RC track was a part of a big Racing Center, They have Go Kart track, Motor Cross track, and a big track for 1:1 cars - very nice facility. The temperature was around 30 degrees, very hot for the drivers, but very fine for the race.

Practice started Tuesday and after the practice we had two drivers from Denmark and one from Norway in TOP 3!

Qualifications started and the Danish drivers was very unlucky, the track got a big grip and the cars suffered grip rolls! Markus Elmerfors took the overall TQ, Georg Ellingesen was 2nd and Petter S?lvberg 3rd.

Saturday afternoon we had to drive Semi finals, but the sky turned black and we got a big thunderstorm with lightning so we had to stop the Semi final B and wait Restart of semi B was still during the rain. Claus Ryeskov had find some good tires and was in the lead, but after 12 laps Claus got water in his receiver and retired from race. Because of the wet track not all drivers were on the track. So Claus got a very cheap ticket to the final as no 10.

Sunday was a final day. We got the good weather back again an all 10 drivers were ready for the final.

Final length was 45 min, track was very hard for the tires so the tire strategy had a big influence on the result. Final started and drivers made lot of mistakes, some went of the track and some got penalties for pushing. Some was lucky to get a good start. Claus Ryeskov was just doing the job, and like all ways no errors, and stayed on the track. One tire change for Claus was enough, then he just cruised to save the tires and finished 2nd!
