G-7 one motor

Tuesday was practice day and on wednesday we drove the G-7 one motor race.
24 drivers put into four "semis".  The first two in each semi moves up to main A and the third and fourth from each semi moves up to main B.  When both main finals are done you make a total result list based on the total laps in the mains.

Only one motor is allowed and you are not allowed to rebuild it after the semi so you both need to be quick so that you reach the main but also you need to save your engine so that you have something to race with in the main.

Semi D was won by Juha Yli-Sipola 423 laps with Petteri Pirhonen in second 399. These two goes to main A. Third was Tuomo Iso-Aho 390 and fourth Oliver Sonnbichler 360. They move into main B.
Out were Klaus Jungblut and Esa-Pekka Söyrinki.

Semi C saw a lot of people retire and the survivors stopped racing after five heats.
Gugu 267 and Douwe Banning 267 to main A. Rudi Kamieth 261 and Veli-Matti Kantamaa 216 to main B. Out were Joao Carlos and  Risto Olkkonen.

Semi B. Mikael Silén topped this on 413 with Stefan Törnfeldt 411 and they moved to main A. To main B drove Marko Pirinen 411 and Peter Krcil 408.
