About me and RC!


2005

This is the year where it all started. My father bought me a 1:6 Racing Truck for my birthday. Right away i started training and 2005 was all about training. For a month hehe.

2006

This year i started to attend races. My first race was at my local track and i got the TQ right away! To all surprise i did very well. But my first race made me very nervous so i ended up only 4th.

Next races was much better, in speed, but my nerves didnt hold and i made alot of mistakes. But, i went home and started practice to hold my nerves in check.

Next race i win. And the one after that, podiumsand etc.

This was my golden year and i will never forget it.

(2006 Passing my ever rival, Torsten Nilsson. Also 2012 Swedish Champ 1:5 Touring.)

2007

This year i started a new class. 1:5 Touring. I had some trubble becuse i had an old car and a mechanic(my father) that couldnt help me to setup my engine. so i was driving around in half throttle hoping for the best. Also much school and couldnt practice as much i wanted, i suffered from not doing any good this year.

2008

A small comback! 17 years old i was attending 1:5 class again. Now this year i was much more competative. To have 2 TQ and a podium in 2 races was a good result. But both races my car wasnt really good. Some problems with engine both races.

i only races 2 times this year. Economy was very bad and couldnt race as much i wanted.

But i sold my car and got some money for it and started a cheaper class. 1:10 Touring. i started practice and race right before christmas.

2009

I went to DHI CUP 2009 with literally driven my new 1:10 car only 3 times. Very bad choice, i know, but i gained alot of experience and it was really fun too!

Some races in the 19T stock class and my best result was 6th place. So happy with that i wanted to try another season. But, the economy hit me againg. And couldnt race more.

2011

About a year later i had economy to try race again. I practiced alot the whole 10/11 winter season indoors. I raced some Modified. It went pretty ok. I was alright, but i lacked experience to setup my car. I didnt have much grip and didnt know what to do. So i studied much jabuary 2011 to help me understand setups.

First race 2011 was SSIC in Växjö. I decided to try out Stock class. I ordered a stock ESC and i came in the mail day before race. So didnt have a chance to try it before the race.

I managed to TQ with a whole lap ahead or this years 2011 Stock Champion. I was extremely pleased with this! But in the finals i got hit by the second place man in the starts and he broke my car. Not having stuff to repair my car i had to give up and drive as it was. I managed 5th place at this race anyway with a broken car.

2012

 Not have driven anything again for a year, i did make a comeback begining 2012. I enter MSEC cup in Karlstad in 17.5 boost stock class. I didnt expect much and i ended up 8th. But i had some money left and decided to go for SSIC stock class in Gothenburg also. I TQ this race and also i made my first win in 1:10 Touring!

Season ends, and new season comes. My touring car is gone and retired. I got myself a 1:10 Buggy. As it is the biggest indoor class right now and also training oppurtunity is much more racing this class i decided i need to get some training.

With having big problems with the jumps, i didnt expect much more then gain expereince my first tries.

2013

I got a feeling this will be a pretty good year. But time will tell! I dont expect wins or podiums. But i expect improvement!

More to come and more history will be made!

One thought on “About me/Results

  1. Hej Andre.

    Fin webside du har, håber det går godt.

    Jeg har jo ikke kørt i nogle år nu men starter lidt i 2009, jeg starter med 1:6 off-road og lidt 1:8 off-road.

    det kan være jeg køre lidt touring men jeg ved ikke endnu.

    Hils din papa.

    Med venlig hilsen
