Long summer break over and it was time for the middle swedish cup rd4 in Eskilstuna. Super fun track and just an awesome facility!

Manage to take TQ after taking round 2 & 3 with a good margin.

Time for semi and it was an awful and first stint for me, last after first lap and misstake after misstake. But after refuiling I got used to the bumpy track and flied to the finish line in first place.

Final was very diffrent, starting 3rd after my bad time in semi. Jessica Pålsson from 1st, Race Elias Johansson from 2nd and me in 3rd. We pulled away from the field and had a long fight in the top. When the first refuiling came I flipped out and dropped down massively. But my concentration returned halfway through but couldn't close the gap when the tires ran out at the end (front tires were litterly like slicks after the final)

Finishing 2nd, best junior, TQ and won last man standings. And this also ment that I secured the title for 2019🔥

We stayed another day to practise at the track and we manage to find the perfect setup, cutting the lap times by 1 second a lap! And new personal best!
