Rata-SM started at Kemora

E-mail Print PDF
The Finnish Championships in Formula Ford is off to a great start - the first races were held this weekend at Kemora under a blazing sun (25...27degC!) and some occasional very heavy thunderstorms/showers...
 
In Formula Fords 12 cars were entered, half in the Duratec class and half in the Zetecs. This being the first race of the season, perhaps no surprise that there was plenty of action - and some broken suspension parts. Unfortunately some drivers also found themselves spoken to by the judges, so a bit over-eagerness perhaps?

The main title contenders, Antti Buri and Ville Kivinen, started the first race with some contact leading to Antti finding himself off the track at the end of the back straight. Fortunately his car was in good enough shape to continue in the second race, but the first race was DNF'd. Ville took the #1 spot, followed by rookie Elmeri Ylitalo and Sebastian Nummi. In Zetecs the order was Ollila, Laine, Höglund and Stenius. I had a good start taking a few positions straight up, but the end result was annoyingly fourth in the Zetecs.

Second race was even more aggressive than the first, with Miikka Mäkelä and Sebastian Nummi taking contact and bringing the safety car in. For us this was positive, since we had again taken a very good start passing Ollila and Laine, but these guys had pushed back past me again. Also, turned out my right rear bearing developed a very ill-boding vibration, so the safety car was very welcome! The safety car got off for the last lap, so it was a race to the finish. Despite being only one lap, Ville Kivinen and Antti again took contact, this time 20m before the finish line (!) sending Antti in the air and both guys to the judges. In the end Ville got penalized, making Elmeri Ylitalo the winner, Antti 2nd, and Ville 9th. In Zetecs Laine had made a pass under a yellow flag and got a penalty. Thus Zetecs race 2 results were Ollila, Höglund, Stenius, and there we were with a trophy! The season has started well! Full race results will appear at the FFF pages and the Rata-SM pages under "Tulokset".
