Race report by Finn Aasen

The Norwegian Championship for 1/10 IC track was held at the track in Starmoen approx. 170km north of Oslo in Norway the 27th to 28th of Jun this year. Due to the fact that this event, for the first time in RC history in Norway was to be covered live on the National Norwegian broadcast, the tension was high throughout the whole event, with a high focus on all aspects from both organizers and racers. Also to mitigate all possible effects of gathering so many people in one relatively small area with the Covid-19 still an risk, the organizing club and track owners put in to action strict regulations to hinder spreading this disease, with physical barriers in pit and at drivers rostrum.

After completed qualification which set the standard for the weekend racingwise with close and intense driving from all 21 racers, no one held back and the outcome was open till the very end, the young and talented Olav Dahle held TQ.

To the Super Pole Petter Sølvberg, Øyvind Stusdal, Trygve Berntsen and Christian Hovden  fought for position. Petter Sølvberg came out as the fastest after some very intense and nail-biting minutes.

The weather forecast predicted rain on Sunday, so all qualy heats and Super Pole was completed on Saturday in very hot and sunny weather. On Sunday the start of A final was forwarded about 1,5hrs to enable as good tack conditions as possible even if it rained sporadically in the hours up to start.

After some very strong and focused driving, Petter Sølvberg who never showed any nerves and held his cool even after some strong pressure from Øyvind Studal, coasted his XRAY NT1 1.3 to a convincing win.

Driver, mechanic and car never shoved any sign of fatigue during the 45 minutes of racing, even when the conditions changed from dry to wet track.

This race was selected as a venue where the “Kongepokal” (The Norwegian Kings Trophy) which is the highest ranking trophy an athlete can receive, was to be awarded the winner. Petter Sølvberg received this trophy, handed out by the President of the Norwegian Motorsport Federation.
