Great racing in Drammen
Our drivers had a great weekend in Drammen. Nikolay Holtan-Andersen won in GT15 and Marius Strand secured 3rd position in the Norwegian Cup. Live S. Gulbrandsen was 4th in the Nordic Championship of GT30 and Tobias Munthe-Kaas fought hard and came 3rd in the F2 race. Joakim Halvorsen made a great show in F4 and our F1 2seater was in action all weekend.
GT15 had their last race of the Norwegian Cup in Drammen. Nikolay Holtan-Andersen was in a league of his own and won three heats and secured first place in Drammen as he did in Sandefjord two weeks ago. Marius Strand had a good race and came 5th. With this result he secured 3rd position in the Norwegian Cup behind winner Elise Hagane and second Andrine Linja.
Live S. Gulbrandsen fought hard in the Nordic Championship and was in a point tie for 3rd position with Talina Hagane after 4 heats. Unfortunately Talina had a better laptime and Live had to settle for 4th. All in all a great result for the tough driver that has had a difficult season. Sander Sørmyr won the Nordic Championship and our Swedish friend Micke Bengtsson came 2nd.
The F4 class had a showrace on Saturday and Joakim Halvorsen drove his F4 catamaran to perfection. Things are looking promising for Joakim before the upcoming European Championship in a couple of weeks.
Tobias Munthe-Kaas was once againg fast in free practice and time trials, but had some fuel cell issues in the first heat. After fixing the problems, Tobias was eager to pick up the fight with Christian Carlsen and Frode Sundsdal. As before this season, he had some technical problems in the starts and came slow off the dock in all heats. Despite his fast laptimes, it was difficult to pass on the short circuit and Tobias had to settle with 3rd. The F2 race was won by Christian Carlsen with Frode Sundsdal on 2nd.
Friday and Saturday evening Marit Strømøy was racing our F1 2seater with happy passengers. With around 25 new members of the 100 knots club it was a successful event. Extra special for the kids from Ung Norge that had the thrill of their lifetime in our F1 2seater. Outboardklubben put on a great race in beautiful weather in the heart of Drammen and we already look forward to next year´s event.
