Yesterday evening we had Dave Leahy from Electrimotion over to help us locate the problem with the ignition system. And this is what we found. The cable to the crank trigger was hurt… If this just would have stayed together for a couple of seconds more… But we will be back!

Ulf didn’t make it

In the first elimination round Ulf hit a bad shake and was beaten out of the ladder.
