Dutch 1/8th Nitro On-road Nationals Rd2 – Report

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.
