1/8th Buggy Euros: Teemu Leino 7th Overall

Sat, 9th August 2014

Today was Finals day for me, with the Semi A for 20 minutes first, then the first 6 racers in each Semi (Semi A and B) would go into the Final later in the day. I was third after qualifying, so I started second in the Semi after Ronnefalk who had TQ. 

The goal for me was just to make the top 6 so I could be in the Final, but I had less traction in the Semi so it was hard to drive. I made a couple of mistakes but I made it through in 6th, I changed the tyres for larger pins and started 12th, last position.

The car was really good in the Final, in the beginning I had some bad crashes with other drivers so I dropped a few positions...I'm pretty happy with 7th. It could have been better, but that's racing. I had hoped to get podium after qualifying but it's alright. 

Next week is the nitro TC Euros in Spain, so I go directly there tomorrow to start practice on Monday.
