2017 Belgian SCT Cup Rd5 – Report

Round 5 of the 2017 Belgian SCR Cup was traditionally held on the iconic MBV Kampenhout track. The flawless organisation allowed to run four instead of the usual three qualifiers, giving the drivers more opportunities to improve their lap times, on the very technical and demanding track that requires a good rhythm. The qualifiers started on a wet track but it dried up quickly with the nice and sunny weather making for good but not too high grip levels all day long.

This was in particular the case in the opening round of the Pro2 qualification with the last heat running under rainy conditions. Frederic De Conchy (TLR),…
