D’hondt wins Belgian 1/8th Nats Rd5

D’hondt wins Belgian 1/8th Nats Rd5

The weekend just gone saw the 5th round of the Belgian 1/8th scale National Championships held at the brand new Charlerloi track. In qualifying it was Serpent racer and winner of rounds 1 and 4, Robin D’hondt that took the pole position ahead of his team mate and round 3 winner Steven Cuypers in 2nd. In the warmup for the final Steven stripped his front belt and with little time to fix it, decided to start the final with 2wd, which proved difficult to drive and he retired shortly after. Pole man D’hondt got a good start and despite some small clutch problems he was able to take the win by 6 laps ahead of 2nd placed Michel Bourgeois with 3rd spot going to Gunther Van Staey.
