Kouvola, Finland. 12-13:th of March 2005

This was the second time this year that I took a flight over to Finland and raced in Kouvola.
This time I was not alone from Sweden. Stefan Törnfeldt join me at the airport in Helsingfors (he flew in from Landvetter/Gothenburg and I from Arlanda/Stockholm).

We got a ride from the airport with Jari Porttinen. At the track Hannu Laitinen had already made coffee so it was then time for the last preparation for the race.

Saturday ended with the G 7 qualifying.
Petteri Pirhonen, who I haven't seen that often lately was fastest followed by Stefan Törnfeldt who hasn't raced that much either. Is that maybe the way to go?

Stefan Törnfeldt 1,574
Jari Porttinen   1,594

In the main Jyri-Ville Pouttu was the surprise using borrowed motors and taking the lead together with Pekka Sippola. Stefan Törnfeldt was close behind and he raced to victory. Second was Lasse Åberg and third Juha Yli-Sipola.
