Sweden Nils Gustafsson sweeps Swedish cup final juillet 27, 2022 by Chris Laisser un commentaire The final round of the 2022 Swedish cup was held at Skarpnäck track near Stockholm over the weekend. It was a long time ago that there was such a high level of Swedish racing in 1/8th nitro buggy with talented racers such as Nils Gustafsson (Team Associated/Reedy/Picco/Sweep Racing), Hampus Berg (Mayako/Corsatec), Pontus Larsson (Serpent/Performa Racing/Sweep Racing), Jessica Pålsson (HB Racing/Schumacher Racing/Sigma Fuel/Hot Race Tyres), and Elias Johansson (Serpent/Picco). The Skarpnäck oiled track had a really fun layout and Nils took the overall TQ by winning the first three rounds of qualifying. The last rounds. The last rounds were held under the rain but hopefully the sun will be back on Sunday. Nils carried on his momentum and won the fastest semi, meaning he was sitting on pole for the hour Main final. A tricky start for Nils will allow Hampus Berg to got by but Nils will be able to get back in to the lead and start to pull away. The last 15 minutes of the final were a little bit scary for Nils as every time he landed bigger jumps a strange noise came from the car. On the advice of his father Nils drove a little bit slower in some parts of the track and despite this he managed to take the win from Hampus and Jessica in 2nd and 3rd respectively. Since he won two out of three events, Nils is Swedish champion in 1/8th nitro buggy for the 2022 season. Now he is focusing on the Nordic championship which is at the beginning of August. After that, Nils, as one of seven in the Sweden team will attend the WC in Redovan, Spain at the beginning of September. Could this be the guy who is the junior Viking after David Ronnefalk? David has created a culture in Sweden that takes racing to a very high level and many of us have him to thank for what is to come. Thanks to the NettoRC family for the report.
