XRAY

The first round of the OMK Fall Classic Series 2WD was hosted by OMK (Oslo R/C Car Club) and R/C distributor Way To Win. The race series is run over 8 rounds on OMK’s Astro track partially under the flood lights in the evening. Race format consists of open free practice and then 3 qualifiers and 3 finals. Malin Karlsen took the overall TQ after some very eventful qualifying heats.

In the first final Malin had a great battle for the lead after an early mistake. Patiently she will keep the pressure up and wait for a mistake to take the lead. The driver leading the race will make the mistake and Malin was able to take back the lead and the first win. In the second final Malin will be under the pressure of the driver in second position in the first part of the race but she was able to open up a lead and take another win. For the 3rd and last final the sun had set and the track was getting colder and a bit moist in some spots. After a tyre change for a tire more suited, Malin takes an easy 3rd win.

A-final results:

  1. Malin Karlsen – XRAY
  2. Marius Kristensen – Serpent
  3. Steffen Larsen – AE
