Report by J-P.Huhtala

2017 SEASON 2 1:10 SC TRUCKS 13.5 ROUND 3 MHS Raceway 2

PRO level

PRO level event and whole race was dominated by Americen driver Tom Rinderknecht.
This 15 years old talent won the qualifying round with 2 second margin before Finnish driver Ilari Lamminsivu. South African Eben Coetzee was third, he was over 9 seconds away from TQ pace.

Main final was Rinderknecht show, even he also had some struggles in some corners, he truly was magnificent at his run. And even he did mistake at lap 21, what gave him 6 seconds extra, he won this race with 11 seconds gap to Hong Kong`s Carson Yeung. Yeung instead had a great fight against Eben Coetzee. Coetzee was in second spot first 16 laps, but Yeung was gaining him lap by lap. On 17th lap Yeung passed him and never look back. Yeung hold his rhytm and got well deserved second place and Coetzee had to settle to third place.
About Rinderknecht, we shall wait what this American talent does at Worlds 2017, i bet he will be in top spots, if he participates.

Rinderknecht won the PRO level

SPORT level

At Sport level we saw also American win. Curtis Damn was most consistent as he crossed the line when time expired. Even Matsumoto from Japan led this pack first 14 laps, and looked that he is favourite to take this one, Damn didnt surrender. Matsumoto struggled little bit with his rhytm and this gave advantage to Damn. Bit by bit Damn closed the gap and also passed Matsumoto at 15th lap. From this point Dman only job was drive same consistent style and take the win. Gap between these two was 5.2 seconds, when race ended.
Portuguese Nuno Lourenco had also great run, as he came third. He was four 10th`s away from winners pace. Without his three mistakes during his run, Nuno had been great opponent to Matsumoto.

Damn`s(white) consistent pace was too much to Matsumoto

CLUB level

German driver Paul Deafty totally crushed his opponents at club level, he won this race with enormouss 36 seconds margin before American Zavien Rosato. If Deafty`s win was safe, so was Rosato`s second place. Third place went Greek Christos Katsigiannis, he was over 7 seconds behind Rosato, when race ended.

CLUB level crusher, Paul Deafty
