Robin D’Hondt takes Belgian Nats Rd1

Robin D’Hondt takes Belgian Nats Rd1

More National Championships starting up over the weekend, this time it was the turn of the Belgian 1/8th scale series to get started. Running at the narrow and technical Houthalen curcuit, the racers had dry weather on Saturday for testing, but rain on Sunday meant that everyone had to waterpoof their cars and put on their rain tires and after qualifying it was Kyosho driver Gunther Van Staey that took the pole from Serpent driver D’Hondt in 2nd. In the final, Robin could get into the lead just after the start and thanks to saving his wet weather tyres during qualifying he had the grip to pull out a lead of 4 laps by the end of the 30 minute race from Van Staey in 2nd and Mugen driver Michel Bourgeois in 3rd.
