Landén & Larsson win at Winter Indoor Rd1

See: XRAY

This weekend was held the first round of the Winter Indoor RB series in Eskilstuna, Sweden. The fairly small track was laid out with an old school touring carpet, so the grip level was quite low. In the 4WD class it was Alexander Landén (XRAY) who secured the TQ spot by taking the first two qualifying rounds and would start on pole for the finals. Since the track was a very tight, it was hard to overtake, so starting first was an obvious advantage. In the first final A.Landén was able to take the win from a tone to tone win. In the second leg A.Landén made a early mistake and had to let almost of his competitors past. Then a frantic chase began, and he was able to get all the way up to first spot again. Pontus Larsson (Serpent) took the win from A.Landén in second and Felix Angseryd (XRAY) in third. The third final became a really tight affair between the three drivers, but A.Landén was able to grab the win and take the overall win, with P.Larsson in second and F.Angseryd in third overall.
