Daan Jacobs wins Dutch 1/10th finale

Daan Jacobs wins Dutch 1/10th finale

Last weekend was the final round of the Dutch National at the smooth flowing Apeldoorn track in the east of the country. Pedro Rombouts had successfully defended his title on the Baanbrekers home track 4 weeks ago, where the final was less then 10 minutes because of a thunderstorm hitting the track. While the NK class was decided already, the NOMAC class still had no champion and with 4 drivers still able to take it, it would be an interesting weekend for them. Daan Jacobs took TQ for the event, also setting a new fastest lap for the AMCA track. The Serpent team driver was clearly happy that he finally could focus on his chassis and described his car as perfect. Maxim Claese didn’t train on Saturday which left him half a second behind Daan Jacobs on the grid. Sander Borghof was in 3th spot on his home track. Pedro Rombouts in 4th and completing the top 5 direct qualifiers was Daan Stuiver, who had also trained on friday with his new Capricorn chassis.
