Eklund 4th at first EC in Portugal!

The 2007 season has a good start for Per Eklund. At his first race for the European Championship in Portugal, Eklund managed to finish 4th in the A-final.

In the qualifications, Eklund drove a 4th, 5th and 6th time overall. This result was a pole in the B-final. Eklund made a good start in the re-start and was challenged strongly by Jernberg as the race entered its later stages, but ultimately it was too late for the Ford driver.

Eklund benefited from the retirement of Ericsson, and later Sverre Isachsen in the A-final, but could not catch third-placed Kenneth Hansen. A fourth place, a result better than whole last year, when he never made it to the A-final!
