Summer Review #3

FinTrack Tour Finnish Championship Round 7 – Laukaa 22.7.2006

For this race I had not run my car since the last race some 6 weeks before due mostly to a lot of work going on at the local track in preparation for the Electric Off Road Euros to be held next summer.

I had not done anything to my car as well so the preparation was bad to say the least. Anyways I knew my car should work well as my base setup has been good everywhere at all races this summer…and even at the last few indoor races when I used the same setup!!!

Sure enough my car worked well although my driving was not as consistent as I would have liked. I TQ’d the first two rounds though basically securing the pole. Finals went ok and I won the race actually securing the championship for me! 🙂
