Kutvonen wins Modified A1 after close battlesjanuar 13, 2019
Viljami Kutvonen had to defend his TQ position hard in the first Modified A-main in Odense. The finn got off to a great start and instantly pulled out quite a lead, as Ronald Völker struggled for grip on the opening laps.
Gradually, Völker picked up the pace, and the german started gaining a lot on the leading Mugen Seiki driver – so much in fact that Ronald Völker managed to challenge Viljami Kutvonen for the lead in the closing seconds of the heat.
Eventually, it came to a crash between the two as Ronald Völker tried to pass Viljami Kutvonen. As a result, Ronald Völker had to get back on the wheels while Viljami could race to the A1 victory.
Dionys Stadler finished third, while Super Stock leader Tim Benson fought his way from P9 on the grid to a P4 finish. David Ronnefalk finished fifth, followed by Patrick Danielsen and Patrick Hornum. Jakub Rozycki didn’t have the best run in the A1, dropping from P3 to a P8 finish.
