Van Lierop wins Rd5 Dutch 10th Nats

Last weekend at the MBC de Sluis track, in the centre of Holland, was the 5th round of the Dutch 1/10th scale 200mm Nationals. Qualifying saw Xray driver Daan Jacobs TQ ahead of team mate Maarten can Lierop in 2nd, the qualifying sessions having to be extended by 2 more runs following some time keeping problems. In the NK final, pole man Jacobs encountered engine problems which dropped him down the order and gave Van Lierop an unchallenged win by 3 laps in front of second placed Niels Pourchez, driving a Serpent, while in 3rd spot driving a Kyosho was Sander Borghoff. In the Nomac class final it was a close battle between Ricardo van Dam and Ingeborg Gommers, with Ricardo eventually taking the win by 3 seconds, while Jeroen Jemmens rounded out the top 3, 2 laps back on the leaders.
