SSC Evening race #10 17:th of May
Only six drivers showed up – maybe the weather was too nice – for some racing so we decided that the quarter and main would each have three drivers competing.
In spite that the second, third and fourth quickest in qualifying
– (average level of performance) – in our club did drive, none manage to
get under 4 seconds. Maybe the uneven grip of the track was the reason. We
had no good explanation for the modest results. But the grip did later on
cause some strange problems on certain lanes, especially in the quarters.
Torgny Lundmark won however the qualifications with a time just above four
Torgny Nordgren won quarter B with 151,30 laps.
In the B main Marcus Hammenstad soon established a safe lead and
started to play around in the last segment. Peter Lantz had once again problems
with an ill handling car and withdraws from the race.
In the A main Torgny Lundmark on reed took an early lead, but lost
a braid and at least 6 laps while replacing it. Torgny Lundmark started a
chase and passed Mats Hummel in the third segment and went closer and closer
to Torgny Nordgren. In the end Torgny N. managed to hold on strong, drive
safely without mistakes and had his first and well deserved victory in the
Saloon-cup. A very happy man after the race!
