Our Team Driver, Tuomo Otsavaara wrote us a race report from this seasons final Winter Jumps race, held at the Hupicon expo, helsinki.
The sixth and final round of finnish Winter Jumps off-road rc series was held in Helsinki at Hupicon fair last weekend. The track was made of concrete with carpet on the jumps.
Saturday started with 2wd buggy class. Some of the fastest drivers were missing due to EOS round 5 being held in Germany. The track was really slippery in the morning because there was some kind of dust layer on the concrete. With the qualifying rounds starting the track had gotten more traction. Markku Honkanen had strong driving in the qualifying rounds and took TQ for the finals with Jamiel Gabrielsson being second and Lauri Ruotsalainen third. In the finals no one could compete with Honkanens speed and he won the first three final rounds and secured the win of the race. Ruotsalainen and Luopajärvi battled for the second place after Honkanen had secured the win and Ruotsalainen won the last final round and secured second place of the race with Luopajärvi being third.
This race was the final round of the Winter Jumps series 17/18 and Ruotsalainen had already secured the win of the series so the battle for the second place in the series was between Otsavaara and Saarinen, who were second and third in the series before the final round. After Otsavaara finished 6th and Saarinen 8th, Otsavaara secured the second place in the series.

Sunday was the 4wd buggy race day. The traction in the track had gotten much better after saturday so the speeds were much higher. After the practice rounds the strongest contenders for the TQ were Otsavaara, Honkanen and Saarinen. Otsavaara was the fastest in the first qualifying round but Honkanen took the two following rounds and got TQ for the finals with Otsavaara starting in second place and Saarinen third. Since this race was the last in the series and the first place of the whole series was still open between Otsavaara and Saarinen the tension in the finals was clearly visible.
In the first of the four final rounds Otsavaara managed to overtake Honkanen in the first lap and drove safely to the win. In the second round Saarinen took the win and in third Honkanen. So the battle for the win of the whole series between Otsavaara and Saarinen took place in the last final round. In the last final Otsavaara had bad luck and dropped 7th in the first lap and started to chase Saarinen who was in the second place. Otsavaara managed to get close to Saarinen but time started to run out, with only thirty seconds on the clock. Saarinen made a small mistake in the second last lap so Otsavaara overtook him and won the race and the whole series.

season recap by Tuomo Otsavaara
My 2017/2018 winter jumps series went really good in both 2wd and 4wd especially with the new 2018 Xray XB2 and XB4. The first to rounds of winter jumps went kinda good and I placed 4th and 5th in both classes in both rounds. After those two rounds i got my 2018 XB4 and it was really fast and I placed 2th in third round of winter jumps. In fourth and fifth round I just couldn’t get the flow on and placed in both 2wd and 4wd on the bottom end of A-main.
After fifth round i was second in 2wd series and third in 4wd series. There was no possibility to win 2wd class anymore with only one race being left and so big point difference to the leader but i had possibility to win 4wd class if i managed to win the last round. In last round i got my XB4 2018 really fast and won the whole 4wd series. 2wd went pretty decent as i placed sixth in the last race and secured the second place in 2wd series. I’m really happy for the results in the indoor season and I’m excited for the summer season to start.
