For Serpent it was a very successful race weekend in sunny state Florida at the Winter nationals at the Fort Myers track. The race took place in 4 categories and in each of it Serpent had a good share of drivers.
In the GT8 class 4 Serpent started the final and it was Joaquin Desoto sr. that took the victory after a hard fought 45 minutes with his Serpent Cobra GT.

Mark Green reached a fantastic 3rd place with his 977 Viper EVO2. His decision was to not use tire additives (although allowed) and despite some minor incidents he drove a great final and finished in the lead lap after 45 minutes. Next to Mark we had 3 more Serpents in the main final.

The fifth round of the MSEC Indoor Cup was held in Örebro, hosted by the Bofors MRK club. The track was quite technical and it offered medium traction. 67 competitor in in four classes. In 1:10 modified controlled practice Macus von Elling set the fastest 3 consecutive laps and close behind it was Serpent drivers Andreas Johansson and young Lukas Knutsson. The qualifying result was based on the best single result, out of three rounds in total. After three rounds Andreas Johansson placed himself on the top spot, 3 seconds ahead of Lukas Knutsson, and 6 seconds ahead of kristoffer Axelsson.
