Race report of the 2nd round of the Danish Nationals by Pelle Culmsee:
I came to the track saturday morning for getting my Orion powered HB car ready for the morning practice, I had some 3d printet parts on my car. But just when I rolled out of the pit my car flipt and the parts where broken, so not much practice for me that day. The first qualify went okay, but I made to many mistakes so I got a 3 place in that round, next round I broke a rear axle so a DNF, next round I made really manny mistakes so I got a 5 place. Last round of qualifying when I was heating my engine up it sounded strange from my gearbox so I never came out running.
