The final round of the Dutch 1/10th Nitro Touring Championship was held at the fast and flowing Baanbrekers track in Rucphen. Both the National and Nomac titles were still up for grabs and with the championship standings close it was all to play for. The weather greeted the drivers with dry conditions on Saturday afternoon, and sunshine on Sunday made for near perfect conditions. Qualifying would start with the Serpent duo of Daan Jacobs and Julius Kolff being only tenths apart, setting the pace from Milan Holthuis who was just a few seconds adrift with his Capricorn. With ever improving conditions, in the second heat everyone looked for improvements but all had minor mishaps which would make for a tense last heat. Julius would start last and this turned out to be an advantage as he could use Milan and Daan as a target and with the only 21-laps run of the day he snatched the TQ.

Free practice on Friday took place in ideal weather conditions with track temperatures exceeding 35 degree Celsius.

Nevertheless a good amount of drivers turned up to attend in the four classes of Touring Modified, Touring Stock 13.5T, Formula and Pro10 10.5T.

This meant that the young Dutch driver had to defend his chances with his old Yokomo
