During the 7seventh round of the series a lot of the best drivers in Denmark have competed and enjoyed the warm hospitality in the fully supported, heated racetrack and hobby shop at Rc Kongen. 

Different track layouts have been tried during the year, and Kim Bendiksen of Rc Kongen, has also been a pioneer in setting up new rules for the classes. One set of tyres for the entire event, colour coded winglets instead of numbers to make it easier for the announcer and spectators, and finally a rookie class where you can run any 1/10 scale car with no motor limit, as long as you use the control Schumacher Cactus tyre. 

In 4wd Team Associated’s Marcus Kaerup has been almost unbeatable on his home track. He showed some of the same pace, but Frederik Hovgaard gave him a good run for his money with his Yokomo in the finals with HB Racing’s Pelle Culmsee (Denmarks 1:8th nitro star) close behind in third.

Championship top 5:

  1. 164 pts Marcus Kaerup Team Associated / Reedy
  2. 156pts Pelle Culmsee HB Racing / Orion
  3. 153pts Christoffer Henriksen Yokomo / Yokomo
  4. 152 pts Mathias Douglas Team Associated / Reedy
  5. 145 pts Mikke Douglas Team Associated / Reedy

Special mention to Frederik Hovgaard, who due to running Touring Car during the winter, only drove 3 races and did not have enough counting races in the championship.

2wd was a hotly contested class in the winter series, and it ended up being a tight fight between son and dad, namely Marcus and Jonas Kaerup. During the year, we still had multiple winners Christoffer Henriksen winning the first round from TQ with his Team Associated B6, he has since changed to Yokomo. Pelle Culmsee also won a round and finally Yokomo’s  Frederik Hovgaard won the penultimate round. This Sunday was all about 10-year-old Marcus though. He had to TQ and win to snatch the championship away from Jonas Kaerup. Both in qualifying and the finals Marcus Kaerup was gone, and never looked back. Fastest lap, fastest 5 min run and finals. Jonas Kaerup could win the last final and finish second with Frederik Hovgaard coming home in 3rd overall this weekend.

The Rookie class was a close fought battle all year long, with three Team Associated’s drivers taking turns on the top step of the podium until a driver from the 80’s, Kim Aanundsen showed up. He instantly won two races in a row, and he took TQ again at this round. In the finals, a few mistakes cost him the victory, as local driver Paw Mikkelsen kept the tyres on the ground and won with style. Tommy Kristoffersen was strongest in his class by putting together consistent runs during the year, and with that won his first championship.

Championship top 5:

  1. 158pts Tommy Kristoffersen AE / Reedy
  2. 155pts Paw Mikkelsen AE/ Hobbywing
  3. 155pts Jens Otto AE/ Hobbywing
