Belgian SCT Cup Rd4 – Report

Belgian SCT Cup Rd4 – Report

The 4th round of the 2014 Belgian SCT Cup was organised by the new A.R.T. Sprimont club and held at the former RCEL track. The layout was unchanged from last year and the track is considered to be one of the best in the country, with elevation changes and high speed chicanes on a surface offering many different grip levels along the day. In the absence of current Pro2 ranking leader, Philippe Hautecoeur, France was represented by two newcomers, Laurent and Emilie Halluin (Team Associated). Laurent made an excellent start by setting TQ times in the first two qualification rounds while running in the slower heat. Nicolas Evens (TLR) won the third round to make it second on the grid, followed by Julian André (Team Associated). 1/10 4WD Belgian national champion Jean-Yves Konings completes the top 4.

In the second leg Nicolas Evens was the only driver to manage a 10 lap run, taking the win ahead of Jean-Yves and Edouard-Benoît Michez (Team Associated). In the final leg it was Jean-Yves again, in front of Philippe Gustin (Team Associated) and Tom Pierard (TLR). In the final result Jean-Yves took a clear win with Nicolas Evens and Julian André being tie on points but thanks to the leg 2 win, Nicolas took the runner-up spot.
