Swedish Nats #1-2014 (Hydro & OTA)

Beautiful Spring/Summer weather for the first Swedish Hydro & OTA Nats of the year was held in Frövi (just north of Örebro) May 17-18.

Not that many racers showed up but we had fun anyways and some tight racing. But it clearly showed that not that many (me included) had tested that much prior to the race... ;)

Pics HERE.

Next race is Oxelösund June 7-8.
