Casual Cup

Besides of the Top Cup we had a Casual Cup which had a (little) more casual focus.
Ingroover and Eetu Karjunen showed a hard battle for the championship win, but Ingroover claimed it with a number of 5 impressive wins.

Final Words

We are pleased that we were able to host this championship.

We had races with many participants, but also some with a smaller starting field.

We (THR Orga) have learned that it is not easy to adapt to a new car every two weeks.
It takes time to understand the car, learn the track, find a setup and ultimately master the car/track combination.

We will take this into account in future championships.

Nevertheless, we are delighted for everyone who took part in the championship and would like to thank everyone for doing so!
