For the first time Bergen was the host of the National Championships in on-road category. They did a splendid job giving us a perfect event with a super nice layout on the very familiar ETS carpet.
This was a 2-days event with 4 qualifiers on Saturday and a 5th qualy on Sunday. Followed by the triple A-mains.
In TC Mod it was a pre-race favorite Nikko Haheim who managed to grab the TQ honors, followed by the youngsters of Sindre Undheim in 2nd and Ola Lovbrekke. The finals were pretty uneventful with Nikko grabbing the first two mains. Again followed by Sindre and Ola.
In 1/12th modified it was the experienced Helge Johannessen who grabbed the TQ honors closely followed by Mathias Nedrebo in 2nd and Alexander Gjemble close in 3rd.
In the finals Helge took advantage of all the mayhem behind in A1 and drove away. 2nd A-main Helge struggled with his car dropping him back early on. This led the way for Mathias and Martin Sorlie to battle it out for the whole 8th minutes. In the end Mathias took this main a couple tenths of a second ahead of Martin. For A3 it was all open. Helge and Mathias were able to pull clear of the rest after some misfortunes for the others. Mathias tried to put Helge under pressure, but the experience of Helge gave him an impressive win in the end. Followed by Mathias in 2nd and Martin in overall 3rd.
