Rick V wins Dutch 1/8th Nats Rd5

Rick V wins Dutch 1/8th Nats Rd5

The 5th round of the 1/8th scale Dutch Nationals was run at the weekend on the MACH circuit in Heemstede, near Amsterdam. Qualifying saw Belgian Kyosho racer Ilia van Gastel take the pole position ahead of Serpent racer John Ermen in 2nd and Mugen factory racer Rick V. in 3rd. Just before the main final it started to rain and with little time to prepare before the race started, a lot of drivers were not prepared and some didn’t race. As the race started a number of drivers were out almost straight away including Ermen, but Rick V had no troubles and was able to work his way out to the front where he stayed for the entire race, taking the win and finishing ahead of Motonica driver Daniel Van der Drift in 2nd with Serpent driver Stanley Bauer in 3rd.
