The first race of the Belgian SCT Cup 2013 has been held on BRTC track last Sunday. The layout of the track has been changed for this year and is now faster than before while still being challenging and offering very low grip. The number of entries is progressing compared to last year, with the participation of some fast buggy 1/10 racers and most importantly, young newcomers. They also had the pleasure to welcome a French driver coming all the way from Paris, Philippe Hautecoeur. The day started under the sun with pastries and coffee available on site. In 2WD qualification, tire choice proved to be pretty complex with drivers changing them each run in search of the best compromise. Martin Vierin put in the fastest run of the first run on his SC10 in front of Nicolas Evens (TLR 22SCT), Jean-François Renard (TLR 22SCT), Philippe Hautecoeur (SC10) and Julian André (SC10). Second run saw Nicolas take the advantage ahead of Jean-François, Philippe and Martin. Last run was decisive for the pole position attribution with Martin and Nicolas with a win each. Nicolas took that leg in front of Martin, Cédric Van De Ginste (SC10) and Jean-François.
