This past weekend was held the third round of the WBC at the Borås Miniracing track in Viskafors, Sweden. The track was a mix of tight technical parts as well as high speed sweepers and a challenging “whoopie” section. In the 4WD class Team Associated’s Wilhelm Skjöldebrand took the overall TQ. In the first final XRAY’s Niclas Nille Månsson took an early lead, but unluckily hit a car that flipped in front of him going onto the straight and broke a front arm. His team mate Alexander Landen made a balanced run and managed to get 2nd just 2,5s behind Team Associated Elias Johansson.
In the second round Nille was able to win after battling with Wilhelm for some time. Alexander was chasing down Elias in fourth place when Elias flipped his car going into a jump-face. Alexander hit him and got stuck at the top of the jump and had to let almost the whole field pass before he could get marshalled and rejoined in 9th place. Nevertheless Alexander was able to work his way back up to fifth place in the second round. This all meant that there were four drivers that could win the event going into final round. The last final was fierce in competition. Wilhelm was able to capitalize on the TQ spot and sail off to a comfortable win while everybode else behind him was battling it out. Alexander was able to climb up the order and was battling for second place with Nille and Elias, the wo of them came together and Alexander got past and finished second in this round as well. This established the finishing order of Wilhelm followed by Elias and Alexander.
In 2WD finals it was Jesper Rasmussen who found a good pace and was able to take the first two rounds and secure the win quite easily. Behind Jesper it was more open Alexander manage to improve on his starting position by some stable drives finishing 3rd in all three mains, this was however not enough to get onto the podium where Nille took the last step by finishint 4th and 2nd in the mains. Second place went to Wilhelm Skjöldebrand.
