Rick V wins Rd3 Dutch Nationals

Rick V wins Rd3 Dutch Nationals

Last weekend saw the 3rd round of the Dutch 1/8th scale National championships run on the bumpy Real 80 circuit in Groningen, in the north of the country. Qualifying saw top International Mugen racer, Rick V take the pole position spot from, round 1 and 2 winner, John Ermen in 2nd, Rob Kuijper in 3rd and Danny Leewis, the final direct qualifier, in 4th. Issues for John Ermen before, and just after the start, ended his challenge, while Rick could just pull away at the front, making a tire stop half way in to the race on his way to the win ahead of Serpent racer Danny Leewis in 2nd and Motonica race Daniel v/d Drift in 3rd. The Nomac class saw a close, race long, battle between young drivers Miguel Hereijgers and René van Dijk, with Miguel taking the top spot in the closing stages of the race thanks to a different tire strategy, Arco Wijnen came home 3rd.
