The first race in the Nordic Championship was held this weekend at Botnia Ring in Finland.
Finally came the first victory, it had to go three years until I managed to win a race with my Yamaha 250 cc.
This weekend was run in two classes. In class 250GP were two 1-places, one on Saturday in wet, and on Sunday under good conditions. And there I was the best in all qualifiers for the whole weekend.
In class Formula F2 was a 2-place on Saturday, behind Swede Clas Eriksson.
During the Sunday I stayd as number 2 behind Clas Eriksson, and after three corners, the Swede got a"lowsider" and went on to the gravel. After that it was just to secure the lead until I got the checkered flag. No. 2 was Svein Kragtorp, also from Norway.
Frank Rånes from Batnefjorden (NMC Molde) also participated in class 750 Superbike. He ended at 6 plass.
