Jonnie takes the final and brings another Wally to Sweden. That is the second Lindberg Bros. win today. First Johan earlier today in Germany and now Jonnie in the USA.
It was a grate race 5.44 to 5.45!
Yes, the Lindberg Brothers rule the world right now!
A birds eye view over the mechanic Christian. After a full starting procedure and a reaction time of 0.099, Jonnie got of the throttle and rolled slowly to the finish line.
—It was a planned shut off, Christian says.
In the other semifinal John blew the burst panel at about 1000 feet, and Annie took the win.
Jonnie starts the day with a nice win over Kris Hool. And as the ladder isn't a full 16 car ladder, Jonnie has a solo run in the semi going directly to the final.
Jonnie took out Chris Foster in the first round. Chris car died at the hit, and Jonnie gave us a strong 5.44 pass. And with the win over Kris, he is as you see cleared going to the final already at this point.
John Lombardo has Annie in the semi. That is a race that really can go either way as both drivers has performed magnificent this weekend.
The final qualifying results.
The Landmeco TAFC!
And the Pro Mod winner in 2016 NitrOlympX in Germany is Johan Lindberg!
Saturdays qualifying rained out, and therefor Johan kept his second place in the list before todays eliminations.
Out first was Roland Bolletter. Roland left early, and something happened in the start that made Johan taking the decision to more or less going on idle down the track and over the finish line.
In the second round he had Thomas Stiefel. Johan goes a beautiful 5,99 and takes the win.
In the semifinal we had Bruno Bader. No problem there for Johan winning his way in to the final against Marck Harteveld.
