Double-header title-decider underway with action-packed first day at Nysum

Racing got underway at the super-fast Danish dustbowl of Nysumbanen today (Saturday 5, September) as title battles hotted-up and local heroes tasted podium champagne. Changeable conditions throughout the qualifying heats yielded some surprise results as the great leveller allowed midfield drivers to demonstrate their wet weather prowess.

Several local wildcard appearances across the four categories meant the established order of the season was disrupted, meanwhile anticipation was building for the title protagonists ahead of tomorrow’s Final Showdown, as thrilling battles played out up and down the field.

Olsbergs MSE’s Oliver Eriksson took a huge step towards his first RallyX Nordic title as championship rival and stablemate Fraser McConnell faltered. Meanwhile, in Supercar Lites, Guillaume De Ridder put in an outstanding performance to take victory after nearly two years out of lites machinery, Henrik Krogstad finished second and tops the points table before the final day of competition on Sunday.

Søren Jelsbak claimed a home turf win in a highly competitive CrossCar/Crosskart field while Erik Andersson took control of the CrossCar Junior title race.
