In Touring Stock pre-event favourite Florian Joos (Tamiya) claimed the TQ by winning three qualifiers. He decided not to run in the 5th qualifier in order to save the sole allocated set of tyres for the finals. 11-year old local driver and future star Roel Jongenelis put his Serpent on a fine 2nd spot and he was followed by the Infinity drivers Tjitte Miedema and Thomas Buijze. Behind the four local matador and 1/5th scale affecionado Pieter Netten put his VBC on a fine 5th grid position. The first final was held on a damp track. Thomas thought he was leading the race and inadvertently took out Florian who he thought was a backmarker. Thomas and Tjitte decided not to run in the full-wet second final which was masterfully won by Florian in front of the returning Belgian ace Kristof De Witte and Roel Jongenelis. The third final again went to Florian in front of Roel and Tim Jansen (Serpent) giving the overall top 5 result of Florian Joos (Tamiya), Roel Jongenelis (Serpent), Thomas Buijze (Infinity), Kristof De Witte (VBC) and Tim Jansen (Serpent).
