The Norwegian National Championships were hosted by Racingland SAS in Sandefjord over the weekend. Despite horrible weather forecast, the club crew made an amazing job and it was special since the club has been there for 33 years, and this race was the last race to be at that place. It was decided to shorten down both classes to 3 qualies instead of 5, no semi practices and tighter program and to run the whole event on Sunday. It´s a nice feeling to be at races that all drivers and crew work together. The race was also special since it was time to give out the highest reward it´s possible to win in Norway, no matter what sport you do, “The Kings Trophy” and with the weather, and track conditions, it was more open and a lot of things can happen. But XRAY Factory driver Daniel Kobbevik, took charge from first qualifier in both classes and TQ’d both 1/8 Nitro Buggy and E-buggy. In the Nitro Buggy class Rune Karlsen won the semi-B and was going to line up second for the A-main. Daniel won the Semi-A, and would start from pole.
