    Finally time to sit down and gather my thoughts about our amazing weekend in Reposaari, Finland for 2022 EuroCrawl!
    What I find pretty incredible that 52 drivers were on the line during the weekend participating in all five classes. 40 was my goal but we managed to better it by 12 drivers which is great considering all the misery in last two years. BIG thanks to all participants from all around Europe!
    We truely had the whole finnish summer in one weekend. Weather can be anything really and the conditions on sunday for example were truely something else. Big congrats to all of the drivers who were able to finish. It was a survival at some points but definately a comp to remember! In my opinion the courses were good and as far as I know only one Super gate was not possible in the comp. So very good job by course builders! All the organisational stuff went pretty smoothly also if you consider the difficulties we had with the weather. I'm glad everyone were up for the changes that were essential for a decent running of the event. Champions were made fair and square on the courses and not by other factors.

    First of all I need to thank my wife Janika. Supporting me throughout the comp week and helping with tons of stuff plus filming and keeping me hydrated. Also the 100+ hours of work before the event she has known the importance of this event for not only me but everyone in the crawling family. BIG thanks for understanding!

    Next I would like to thank my dad Pertti for helping with all the materials to the event and loaning the tents and all the supplies to Reposaari. This would be a different kind of event without all the merch. Also big thanks to Maarit for bringing the restaurant nearly 900km to south so the crawlers would get feeded in proper fashion. It truely was a gesture to remember and be thankful for. I think everyone was enjoying to get a bite in between and after the classes. Thank you!

    Props to Daniel for being the host on trophy ceremonies and doing it so well. Great to call you my friend! Thanks also to all of the guys who helped us building the site ready and tare it down during the weekend. Your help is greatly appreciated! Shout out to Katja for taking some awesome pics during the weekend. I'm currently going through them and they will be out in this weekend.

    Massive around of aplodes to all the sponsors:
    Psycho’Pat Crawler Parts
    Nsdrc Scaleparts
    Reef's RC Products
    Procrawler R/C
    Ravintola Meän Paikka
    Shift rcs
    Rocket RC
    Extreme Route - Rock Crawlers
    Pink Bits Custom Crawler Parts
    Progressive RC
    Moreno Creation's
    Dlux fab

    I think everyone got decent stuff from the raffle and seeing this many sponsors really keeps me motivated to organise even more. The importance of the shops and manufactors is a huge deal for us!
    As always I like to thank my fellow ERCCA board members João, Arve, Gabriele and Pat for helping me with the descisions of European crawling and helping a lot on comps as well.
    One more thanks to Siikaranta Camping for having us and giving the perfect place to organise this event. Everyone was so excited about the whole place and the staff was wonderful.

    Now I'd like to hear what were your thoughts about EuroCrawl's fourth edition? What was good and where we can improve?
    In 2024 we return to south. Stay tuned.

    #20 Karl Berger, Austria
    A new name to the top games! Karl is currently the only driver who has beaten the defending European Champion after the 2019 EuroCrawl. This guy has tested a whole variety of axles under the Ventru chassis and has many hours behind the radio on them. One of the few drivers who actually drives only one class and uses all the concentrate on this. With a normal day of driving for Karl he is top ten material all the way but if he has a true driving day he is right up in the mix for the golden glory! Watch out for number 20 on courses next weekend!

    #2 Samu Sarka, Finland
    Defending World and fresh Nordic Champion is ready to turn the tables around in home soil! Updates to the Bully 2 have been made and it is now more competitive than ever. With many hours behind the wheel and two Finnish Championship titles since the last EuroCrawl, the preparation seems to be ready for trying to glinch back the championship. Can he be on the top? Keep your eyes peeled on number 2 on the courses!

    Five of the most interesting drivers of 2022 EuroCrawl Pro class part three:

    #28 Jens Petter Kurland, Norway
    This is a driver mostly known from his exceptional skills of driving a Sportsman rig and placing well every time. Lately though he has been improving so much with Pro driving that he is seen as a contender on top honours in EuroCrawl this year! Jens Petter is no stranger to finals and these Nordic drivers definately are familiar with the terrain. Don't count the vikings and especially number 28 out of the contention!

    #1 Christian Pilsak, Germany
    Defending European Champion. Came to EuroCrawl 2019 by force and took the big trophy. This year it is time to defend the honours. Changes have been made to the trustworthy Ventru and the results have been excellent. Chris has won all of the comps he has driven after EuroCrawl except for one. So the performance standards are pretty high. But is it enough against the other big guns of European crawling? Soon it's about time to find out!

    #5 Patrice Bagnol, France
    One of the rare drivers to have made in all of the EuroCrawl Pro class finals from 2015 forwards. Pat is a class act with and without the radio in his hands and the people are expecting for him to do well again in European Championships. Some updates has come to the Ventru rig since the last time and Pat has been a top contender wherever he has been driving since then. Would it be the fourth time charm for the multiple French Champion? Don't take your eyes off from Number 5 on courses next weekend!

    The highlight of the year is getting closer and closer. To celebrate that we are publishing our next Gold Sponsor of the competition! Procrawler R/C from Hungary wanted to step in the game of crawlers and the reputation of the brand goes way in front of it. Countless victories globally with Procrawler products on these last few years when they have been operating. This is probably your go to brand if you aim high. Professional customer service makes you smile from ear to ear and if the rumours are correct we will see a pop up tent of Procrawler R/C in Reposaari during the EuroCrawl.

    Chassis, servos, transmissions, wheels, you name it. They are all here:
