Time to sum up the season of Smurfette.

Kuva
In RFOT's Crawl Cup after twelve competitions Sofi ended up in third place. That was good effort all in all. RFOT's Crawl Cup was also good place to do some important training for the bigger competitions. Kuva

Kuva
The rig was epic for the whole season. Only things, that were broken: One set of gears from front axle and few screws were bent. Sofi will definately continue with this rig as it is for next season! Kuva

Kuva
Highlight of the season was first podium place in Finnish RC Crawling Series! Phenominal driving, which will lead Sofi higher in future. Kuva

New season is just behind the next corner! Time to prepare Smurfette for another season! Kuva

Kuva
I made pretty good service for it before EuroCrawl, so basic screw tightening should do the trick this time. Kuva

Kuva
Comp will be arranged in Lahti, the legendary Bunker. Annual season starting and this time there will be two guys challenging from Norway and one from Estonia! Kuva Ten drivers on the line, so I'd think top seven performance would be realistic and good goal for the comp. Let's see how it will turn out. Kuva

Here is the link for live scoring. Scores will start rolling from 10AM CET tomorrow. Should be a good battle! Kuva

First comp of 2016 is behind! Kuva

Kuva
The location was fierce Bunker, which really isn't the easiest place to start the season. Courses were really tricky as always in the Bunker. Sofi wasn't able to finish any of the four courses, but neither did many other drivers.

Kuva
For example these stairs are insanely slippery. Kuva There was few good gates for Sofi in the comp, but the final performance really didn't show that. Well, you have to start the season from somewhere and we surely had lot's of fun in that day! Kuva

https://youtu.be/ZNfIR8duv2Y
Here is the second course on video. I think this was Sofi's best performance of the day. Not too many drivers made it to gate eight. Kuva With good driving in the first half of the course she secured the points to carry on till gate eight.

Kuva
This competition really was survival. Those who were able to finish courses were in the top spots.

It was ok season start for Sofi and the most important thing is just keep on driving. Long breaks will effect badly on the consistancy of driving. Next competition will be held on the end of this month. That'll be outdoors, so we will finally get back on business. Kuva

Finally time to update this topic.

Kuva
The outdoor season in Finland started few weeks back.

Kuva
Sofi was able to attend and here she is starting the course two.

Kuva
On the first course she made it exactly to the same points as everyone else. +22. The last gate turned out to be nearly impossible. Kuva

Kuva
On this second course Sofi managed to gather safe points and continued on good level.

Kuva
Few trickier gates here and there, but mainly basic stuff.

Kuva
No chages from the last season. It's purely just to get to know the rig properly.

Kuva
I had massive problems on this gate, but Sofi made it look really easy.

Kuva
In third course Sofi was on the way to safe points, but on the drop down to finish she hit two gates and that basically was too big setback for the cautious tactic that she was using.

Kuva
Fourth course was ok, but nothing fancy.

Kuva
Good start for the season and some learning on the way. "It's never over until all four tires have passed gate ten!" Kuva

Here is the fourth course on video. These kind of performances was to be seen on the comp from Sofi.

Kuva
Last position, but with some pretty good drivers involved. Kuva

Kuva
Beautiful sunset made the day complete and now we start waiting for the next comp, which in Sofi's case will be just after three weeks. Kuva

Sorry for being this late with all the updates on this. Kuva Just been way too busy to even think updating these topics. However there has been two more comps with Smurfette since the last update. Kuva

Kuva
First was in early May at Vantaa. Probably the location of 2017 Nordics. Kuva

Kuva
Sofi drove a typical competition to her. Two good courses and two below the average.

Kuva
Rig is still working fine, allthough new pullers have crossed in my mind. Kuva

Kuva
She'd just need to do more practise comps like this one.

Kuva
The courses on this competition were harder than average to be brutally honest, so Sofi drove quite much on her level there.

Kuva
Location is really cool and I can't wait to see some more comping in there.

https://youtu.be/UzHha3KupWw
Here is the first course on video. This was one of the good and finished performances. There was couple of places where you can really learn throttle control.

Kuva
Fourth place after an average comp is really good. Kuva

Next up would be the first Finnish Series competition in Lappeenranta.

Week after RFOT's Crawl Cup 2016 Comp 2, it was time to head to finnish eastern border, Lappeenranta.

Kuva
First round of Finnish RC Crawling Series were held in there on May.

Kuva
Here is Sofi starting the almost impossible course four.

Kuva
This time there was a good participation in terms of the drivers. Twelve starters in the line.

Kuva
Yet again Sofi had two courses finished and two DNF's.

Kuva
This course was DNF for almost the whole pack though.

Kuva
On the first course it was only a matter of seconds for Sofi to reach the finishing line. Kuva

Kuva
But it was not enough. Another average comp with two really good performances kept Sofi right in the middle of the pack. She just needs that final step! Kuva

https://youtu.be/K30YjadtM4Y
This is the second course on video. Really good to see all the talent and tactic eye making way on one course. Kuva

Kuva
Seventh position of twelve driver field. A-v-e-r-a-g-e. Kuva

Next comp is on 23rd of this month in Jämsä. The third round of Finnish RC Crawling Series. It has been almost two month break since Sofi drove last time, so we hope good performances will be still in reach.
