This weekend we’re heading to northwards to Sweden! Home of Ikea, meatballs, smelly herring, ABBA, Alcia Vikander, Princess Madeleine, Victoria Silvstedt, Elsa Hosk… sorry got a bit lost there… 

It is also the home of the Euros this summer, and more importantly the classic warm up event which this year has been Bittydesign’d – now known grandly as ‘The Nordic Contest’, one might expect some Viking strength related events but we’re assured that its all RC Cars and given it’s a Bittydesign race – some fun aspects sprinkled in! 

Held at the impressive new ‘Eskilstuna Motorsport Arena’ in Gröndal, Eskilstuna, Sweden Europe’s elite are making a long-awaited return to Scandinavia – having not hosted an international event of it’s stature since the 2004 IFMAR Worlds in Furulund some 13 years ago when young David Ronnefalk was only 8 years old and just starting out in RC…

A quick glance at the entry list looks promising, alongside the World Champ we have the new NEO Champ Davide Ongaro as well as Reno Savoya, Aigoin brothers, Baruffolo, Batlle, Zanchettin, Bloomfield, Boots, THE Blogger, Wollanka and coming out of retirement one Magnus Amilon.

Tune in from Friday to follow The Nordic Contest!
