SSC G-27 Try out series 17:th of November
This was the last G-27 race this season. Who would win?
Seven drivers showed up tonight and we ran a round robin system
where four drivers drove at the time.
QualifyingTop qualifier was Kenth Jansson 2,347. His time looked to be unbeatable but it came close when Rickard Lundh drove 2,352 and other close laps. Third came Lasse Åberg with 2,456 with Mats Hummel in fourth with a 2,487 lap.
MainMats Hummel showed early on that he would be tough to beat. Kenth Jansson was also fast.
In the first heat Peter Lantz spun a tire and then got confused. It's not my car he said!
He had, by mistake, taken Torbjörn Lundkvist car. Both car features the same type of paint scheme since both the cars comes from the same source. Since we ran a round robin race it was kind of difficult to keep track of the results. What was clear was that Mats and Kenth were the fastest.
1. Mats Hummel 219
2. Kenth Jansson 206
3. Lasse Åberg 186
4. Mikael Eskilsson 178
5. Torbjörn Lundkvist 158
6. Peter Lantz 115
7. Rickard Lundh, DNF, 104
Who won then? Well Mats Hummel did the job by winning the race. He did not have to TQ but he had to beat Lasse in qualifying which should not be that hard but, he didn't. 12/1000 of a second faster time was all he needed.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, is the last Nascar race for the season. Torbjörn Lundkvist has already won that series but the places behind is still open.
