ETS Rd2 Denmark – Update

ETS Rd2 Denmark - Update

With the 2nd round of the Much More sponsored European Touring Series in just over 2 weeks (14th – 16th of March) in Vejle Denmark, the organizers have announced that due to the great durability of the Much More Sweep control tire, the Modified class racers will now only be supplied with 2 sets, not 3 as previously stated. This will of course be reflected in the entry cost, which has been reduced from EUR100 to EUR80, and will also include a great t-shirt, the design of which we will show you soon. Pro Stock class entry will stay at EUR 100 but includes 2 sets of Sweep tires, the t-shirt and the fantastic Team Checkpoint Money 19T Spec motor. Finally, to encourage new racers, Scotty Ernst has revealed that they will also run a Stock class, with racers able to use their own Stock 27 Turn Motor, a great way of letting newcomers experience a world class event. Entry fee will be EUR 30 and will include 1 set of Much More hand out tires and the event T shirt.

Announcing ETS Rd 2 - Vejle Denmark

The first round of the European Touring Series took place in Kastellaun, Germany and was run alongside the International Speed Weekend. Even though the modified class pole position went to Danish racer Steen Graversen the win went to Finnish Team Associated racer Juho Levanen, who now leads the series after 1 round. Juho came back from a poor 2nd final result where he only finished 8th to take the win in the final round and take the overall just ahead of Kyosho driver Steen Graversen who now lies 2nd in the overall standings. In 3rd spot it was French Xray team driver Cyril N’Diaye who wasnt affected by the huge amounts of pressure piled onto him from current World Champion Andy Moore, who races for Hot Bodies.
