LRP Wins DHI Cup 2009
 

2009-02-13
The racing year of 2009 could not have started any better for LRP!

LRP - World leading brushless technology 2009!

The DHI Cup 2009 was a huge success for LRP in both the modified and stock classes with the VECTOR X12 motor, the SPHERE TC spec and SPX Stock Spec speed controls.  LRP dominated the competition already from the first day of practice to the very last final. LRPs speedcontrols TQ´d all 5 qualification rounds in both modified and stock and won the DHI Cup 2009 in both categories dominating in style, proving that LRP keeps its position in 2009 as the worlds leading company in brushless technology.

 

              

The 9th edition of the DHI Cup took place as always in Odense, Denmark. For the 2nd year in a row the race took place inside the very nice facility of Odense Congress Centre. Already in the first practice on Friday morning the drivers felt comfortable with the layout which was same as last year and offered both spectators and drivers exciting racing action.

In the modified class it was LRP factory driver Alexander Hagberg driving the XTEC X12 modified brushless motor and LRP SPHERE TC-spec speedcontrol who dominated qualifying with maximum points taking the TQ spot. In 2nd place we found newly crowned IFMAR World Champion Marc Rheinard driving the LRP SPHERE TC spec, and in 3rd spot on the grid Teemu Leino also with LRP SPHERE TC spec.  

The modified finals were a close fight between the 2 top drivers from qualifying for the overall victory. Going into the last and deciding 3rd final, both Alex and Marc had one win each and the tension was high before the start.
When the start signal sounded Alexander took the lead with Marc following closely behind. Alex´s car was loose on the first lap which allowed Marc to stay right on the bumper of Alex. Going out on the straight Alex made a small mistake, allowing Marc to get a better speed and eventually pass at the end of the straight. Alex was later involved in a racing incident that saw his chances for 1st place disappear. Out in front it was Marc with a comfortable lead, cruising to the leg 3 and overall victory of the 2009 DHI Cup. Congratulations Marc!  

In the stock class it was a total domination by swedish LRP/HB driver Tommy Bergfelt. TQ and Win! In 2nd place we found Finnish LRP driver Henry Salmen and in 3rd LRP driver Bastian Henning. Congratulations!  

 

     

 

In the end LRP didn´t only win the DHI Cup in style, but also totally dominated this prestigious race by a complete LRP speedcontrol lock-out in both modified and stock class. Fantastic result!
