ETS Rd 2 – Practice Update

Joel Myrberg

The second round of free practice had been completed here in Vejle and drivers are starting to settle in to what they are generally describing as a very fast track. In Modified Jilles Groskamp continues to set the pace. The Tamiya driver tried a different armature during his second run to try and fine tune his motor for the long straight. All the modified runners appear to be working on getting the best combination of top speed and run time with one or two worried about making time come qualifying. Associated team driver Joel Myrberg lost all drive on his TC5 which he believes was down to a problem with his rear diff but the fast Swede was much happier with his car on the second outing. Normally preferring a technical track Joel admitted to liking fast layout of the track here. Second on the timesheets currently is local Johnni Andersen at the controls of his Yokomo BD.

In the biggest class here this weekend, Pro Stock, it is Palle Hornum and his Xray that are setting the pace over Serpent S400 pairing of Nicolai Nielsen and Ronald Arts from the Netherlands. Axel Thoms heads the Hobby class with his Corally over the Xray of Evan Jepsen.

Girl Racers

Two interesting competitors in the second round of the ETS are female competitors Emma Lundgren and Christina Thisted-Hoeg. Emma is one of the youngest competitors here this weekend and she is doing a solid job in the Pro-Stock Class. Christina, better known as the girlfriend of top international Danish racer and Kyosho team driver Steen Graversen, is racing in the Hobby class and should have no problems getting a good set-up from her mentor!
