This class is basically the entry level touring class. The cars use hand out Carson cup motors, which enables the cars to run at the same speed. Despite being an entry level class, it appeals to both beginning and seasoned racers. Eric Bresser took a convincing TQ and was followed by the 3 Belgian racers Jan Van der Heyden, Dirk de Ceularde and 12 year old young gun Alexander Van Gansen. Alexander missed Saturday’s practice but improved from round to round. Dutch racer Peter Vennius took P5 on the starting grid.
The races in this class would prove to be real thrillers. After a fantastic drive, Alexander Van Gansen would manage to totally dominate A1. He made some great and clean passes to grab the win. A2 would prove to be an evenly thrilling race between Jan, Eric and Dirk. The 3 cars fought hard for position, but finished in this same order. Loic Dramaix took a fine P4. A3 would decide the overall victory. Alex was in a seemingly lost position, because he was facing 3 very strong drivers. He first managed to get by Dirk de Ceulaerde. Dirk made contact with a lower placed car and sportingly waited for the other car to recover. It ended his chances however. Eric Bresser seemed to have the upper hand, but Jan was chasing him very hard. Coming on the straight on the last lap, Jan saw a gap and went for it. Both cars touched and young Alexander managed to pass Jan in the process. He finished this final in P2, but it earned him a great and deserved win. The overall positions were; Alexander Van Gansen, Eric Bresser, Jan Van der Heyden, Dirk de Ceulaerde and Axel Kleingeld.
