In the Touring Car Modified class Mitchell van Es took the TQ honours from Olivier Bultynck and Nick Joosens. In the Stock class Olivier Bultynck came out fastest from Geoffrey Vekemans and Athan de Witte while in the Formula category Jitse Miedema put his car on the pole position for the finals.

Dutch 200mm Nitro On-road Nationals Rd3 – Report
The third round of the Dutch 200mm Nitro On-road Nationals was held at the Baanbrekers track in Rucphen, home of last year’s 40+ European Championship. Weather predictions for the weekend were good and apart from a few rain drops it stayed dry all of the time with the track being in perfect condition which was reflected by the very quick times set in qualifying. The Dutch Nationals are run with mandatory Novarossi Sturm engines and Hipex low noise pipes and despite this being a somewhat “budget” solution it is a very powerful package as the times set were only a couple of tenth off of the current track record. In qualifying the battle for the four direct qualifier spots was very close, Daan Jacobs took the TQ with his Serpent followed by Pedro Rombouts (Xray). The 3 spot would be taken by John Bruins (Capricorn) with Serpent driver Julius Kolff only 0.13 seconds behind in 4th. Milan Holthuis would miss the direct final entry by only 4 tenths. Overall this was the closest qualification this year.
The fifth round of the Belgian Electric Touring Car Nationals was held at the circuit of M.A.C. de Baanbrekers in Rucphen last weekend a circuit which is known for its fast corners and high speed straight. The day started sunny but as expected, rain was on its way. In the EFRA class it was Michell Van Es who took the TQ, right behind him was Nick Joosens in second place, followed by Thomas Stockman. During the first final Mitchell managed to create and maintain a gap between him and the second car. Fighting for that second place were Nick and Thomas. But as the clocks was ticking down, Thomas came a lap short. Mitchell won, followed by Nick and Thomas.
RC Lemans Rd4 – Report
Round four of this year’s RC Lemans Series was held this past weekend at the M.A.C. de Baanbrekers club in Rucphen, the Netherlands. Partly damp conditions made things interesting, nevertheless most of the qualifiers and finals could be run in dry conditions. With the qualifiers not being counted by points and following a dry and a slightly damp qualifier the final round would be the rocket round to qualify for the A-mains in both the Modified and Stock classes. In the Modified class it was Reinder Wilms who was able to score the only 23 laps qualifying run to take a maiden TQ in the RC Lemans Series. Behind the Dutchman Tobias Weist, Sven Stoffels, Tim Altmann and Marc Lorenz completed the top 5 with all four being covered by only a couple of seconds.

Dutch 1/8th Nitro On-road Nationals Rd2 – Report
The MAC de Baanbrekers track in Rucphen in the South of the Netherlands played host for last weekend’s round 2 of the national Nitro On-road Championship. Free practice on Saturday started out wet, but during the day the sun came out and the drivers were able to start finding a good setup for Sunday. In the premier NK class, Belgian driver Gunther van Staey (Serpent) returned from absence from the first round due to sickness, but it was Arie Manten (Shepherd) who came out on top after qualifying. The semifinals then gave some surprising results, because both Arie Manten and Ad Vissenberg (ARC) had to retire due to engine troubles and also the main final held some drama, because Gunther Van Staey with engine troubles and Martin Zevenhoven (Serpent) with an empty tank and a broken glowplug would not compete for a podium finish. In the end, it was last year’s EC 40+ winner Frank Baggen (ARC) who took the win in the 30 minute final from Joey Sorber (Shepherd) in 2nd and Donny Blommers (Mugen) in 3rd.
Round 2 of the Belgian Nitro On-road Championship was held at the track of the Mac de Baanbrekers club in Rucphen this past weekend. The nice weather made for a great weekend of racing as did the team of the organising club who did a perfect job. In the 1/8th class it was Nico Vandewynckel (Serpent) who was able to take the win in the 30-minute final from top qualifier Gunther van Staey who was by far the fastest driver on the track but he ended a lap down in the final as he was not able to make up the time he lost during a pit stop for tyres. In 3rd place Jeroen Evers drove a very consistent race to take the final podium spot.
