Eighth Slovenian LEGO Trial Truck meeting, Ljubljana -
February 22th 2013
Despite changing weather and constant snowing, a winter Trial Truck (TT) was organized on Friday, February 22. During the competition the snowing intensified and the participants were able to fully enjoy winter scenery. There were many participants as well as some audience, dominated by a younger population who were able to test their skills in a parallel Crawler 4x4 competition.
There were 8 participants in the MOC category. The winner on the first track was Stari89 with his TT with winter accessories (tires were ’dressed up’ in tracks with spikes). Second and third place were won by Povratnik and bpavsic, respectively, both driving crawlers. They were followed by other competitors: abnormal with his 6-wheeler, Cwetqo, Medvedek, Rokstar and Aho.
The second track was more difficult and the results were not included in the final ranking due to the wheeled trucks having problems with driving. The first three positions were again held by the top three racers from the first track, however, this time the winner Povratnik was followed by bpavsic and Stari89. The results clearly demonstrated that tracked vehicles are the best choice in snowy conditions, an exception being Stari89’s four-wheeled TT with spiked tracks.
At the end of the day we were all shivering with cold due to low temperatures, however pleased with yet another successful TT competition brought to end.
