SweCup1 Podium

Sweden’s outdoor 1/8 buggy season spluttered into life this past May weekend as 54 racers attended the season-opening Swedish Cup event in Höör, it proved a strong weekend for David Ronnefalk as the HB driver TQ’d all five qualifying rounds, however it was former (Kyosho privateer) team mate Christoffer Svensson who posted the faster semi final result in the B semi that would line up on pole.

Out of the 12 finalists AKA proved the most popular tyre, with 7 of the 12 finalists on their rubber as well as a podium lockout.

The final got underway with Svensson & Ronnefalk immediately pulling away from the chasing pack, battling and racing with each other in the first 20 mins. However not long afterwards Ronnefalk was able to open up a gap as a few mistakes from Svensson contributed to increasing the lead, eventually Ronnefalk would have a victory lap as Svensson took 2nd and Sandberg 3rd.
