Johan and Leif had almost the same reaction time. 0.12 for Leif and 0.13 for Johan. Johan shook the tires almost immediately of the startling, and the race was lost.

Johan and Leif in final!

_DSC5569

Johan and Adam was out first. Johan staged in first and had to wait very long for Adam to do the same. Was it an attempt to disturb Johan in his concentration? Adam got away first on another amazing reaction time. 0.04 to Johans 0.12. But it didn't help. Both had problems going down the track slipping and shaking. Johan did the work best and won with a convincing 6.01 to Adams 7.61.

—My brother and the guys are like magicians! Is this even possible in a second run in a car like this? Johan says with a huge smile and continues...

—I felt already in the warm up that this will be a fantastic run. I didn't push it on the tree and I just concentrated on doing the right thing in the car. It's amazing how totally violent these cars are to drive. I love it! What a rush!
