Originally reserved to drivers from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland - which continue to share its organisation in turn - the Trophy was extended to Baltic countries and even to Russia in the early 2000. This year, besides the classic categories KF2, KF3 and KZ2, the organiser KNA Rudskogen chose to add a national race for 60cc Minikarts to the programme.
As from this edition, the Viking Trophy will also open the doors of the World Cups to all participants in each category.
Also, the “Lotta Hellberg Award” special prize - in memory of the lady kart Champion Charlotte “Lotta” Hellberg, prematurely departed in 2005, and the first lady driver to finish 4th in a World Karting Championship event - will be awarded to the Junior driver author of the finest recovery in the KF3 final.
Numbers are on the downside compared to previous editions – 16 in KF2, 35 in KF3, 25 in KZ2 – but the line-up is set to provide great excitement. The fastest Scandinavian and Baltic drivers of this day will take on the grids to dispute the Trophy till the very last lap.
The programme has seen the green already on Friday morning with Free Practice, but the ball will start on Saturday morning with Qualifying Practice and Qualifying Heats, with Prefinals and Finals scheduled on Sunday.
