Race report by Nikko Haheim
Friday we just ran Free Practice in organized heats. Saturday we had 2 heats of Timed Practice with seeding for qualifying. But a challenge regarding the rain were sent our way just prior to first heat starting. Having tested here a lot for the past few weeks, I knew that if the rain was not too bad the traction after the Sugar water (Cheap Coke) wouldn't be bad, so I felt it was good to just start on new tires straight away.

After winning all 4 qualifiers. I ran the same setup on both new and used tires with only the exception of longer additive timing when tires were used. Car felt really balanced for the conditions we had on the track this weekend. Mathias followed me in 2nd after running his second set of tires in the last Qualifier on Sunday morning. Oskar Fjeld followed in a comfortable 3rd having tried putting Mathias under pressure for the 2nd spot in his last run on Saturday.

For A3 it was all open, as both I and Mathias had 1 win each. I opted to run the same tires I used in A1 but swapped the fronts with the rear due to some balance issues with the left rear after the impact. On the warm up lap I already felt really good, and the car was great. After the start I pulled the gap step by step but trying to balance it by not pushing to hard. In the end I won it comfortably with Mathias second and Oskar in 3rd. Which also were the podium results. We had 5 XRAY cars in the A-main, with all of us working well together, and with just minor tweaks in setup differences.

Final results:
1. Nikko Haheim - XRAY T4
2. Mathias Nedrebo - XRAY T4
3. Oskar Fjeld - XRAY T4
