Swedish Championship (Riksmästerskap) Norsjö,
Sweden 3-5 November 2006
Per Persson and Norsjö MHF-Ungdom hosted the 2006
Riksmästerskap, or in English, Swedish Championship, in the wing
This was their first major race on their new Per Persson King track.
The track sported a nice purple color scheme (Joel Montague, Camen,
would be proud). The color worked well with the lane stickers.
G-12 Box "Big"
On friday afternoon the Box 12 class was run with the
attendance of two Finnish racers who did very well at the scale race
"ISRA North European Championship" earlier this year , Atte Hietalahti
and Atte Lyyski.
The duo came to Norsjö by car and since only Hietalahti has a
driver license he had to do all driving which is approx. 1.000 Km! (600
In the main Mattias Karlsson took the lead from the first heat and then
held on to it all the way to victory with 309 laps followed by Daniel
Larsson 306 and Atte Lyyski 303.

for the Finns here.

with more senior racers.
After the Box 12 race practice for Grp. 27 and Grp 7 started.
was already so good that you could do all your tests on motors,
chassis, bodies etc. The only thing to wait with was tire choice and,
as it turned out, braid wear.
