Belgian SCT Cup Rd8 – Report

Belgian SCT Cup Rd8 – Report

The 2014 season of the Belgian SCT Cup came to an end with the final round being held at the brand new indoor clay track of the BRCC, the first and only venue of this kind in Belgium. The new track attracted a lot of driver as the 8th round counted a new record attendance for the SCT Cup. The Pro2 class qualification then was very open with a bunch of new local drivers joining. Loic Voumard (TLR), running in a lower heat, scored the best times in the opening two rounds to take the overall TQ early while Martin Vierin (Team Associated) took the final round to start from 2nd on the grid. Behind the two Julian Andre (Team Associated), Nicolas Gandibleu (Team Associated) and Nicolas Evens (TLR) lined up tie on points.

In Pro4 Nicolas Evens (TLR) made a clean sweep to take the TQ ahead of Thierry Matthieu (Tekno), followed by Christophe Leurquin (Tekno) and Philip De Keersmaecker (Tekno).

The first leg of the Pro2 A-finals saw Martin Vierin taking the lead from start to finish, being the only driver to score 14 laps. Behind him, Julian Andre was in a good fight with Pascal Bouffioux (Team Associated) and they ended up in that order, less than a second apart. After bad luck in qualification, Pascal confirmed his great pace by taking the second final ahead of Martin Vierin and Nicolas Hammerton (Team Associated). Before the decisive third and final A-main Martin, Pascal and Julian all had a chance to take the overall win. Just as he did in A1 Martin pulled away right from the start to grab the win and the overall victory. Nicolas Gandibleu (Team Associated) had a great last final to end up second ahead of Pascal.
