Dutch 200mm Nitro On-road Nationals Rd4 – Report

Dutch 200mm Nitro On-road Nationals Rd4 – Report

Round four of the Dutch 200mm Nitro On-road Nationals was held at the lovely and recently resurfaced Apeldoorn track with 20 drivers in attendance. Saturday was pretty much washed away and this, in combination with a quickly improving track, meant the fastest qualifying times would be counted in the third qualifier and at the end it was Daan Jacobs (Serpent) who posted the only 20-lap run after being in a class of his own. Shepherd driver Roy Bakker recovered from a series of bad qualifyings by putting his car on the 2 spot in the 3rd qualifier, knocking out young Milan Holthuis. Ultimately John Bruis and Pedro Rombouts put their cars on 2nd and 3rd after the qualifiers. The main final then saw a very clever acting Daan who took the win without being really challenged. Behind him the battle for the remaining podium spots was on between Roy, Milan and Pedro. At first Roy dropped down the order only to recover later on but be then fall back again to make way for Milan who qualified through the semi final and was able to ultimately grab the runner-up spot. Pedro would round out the podium after a decent race.

Thanks to Ruben d’Arco for the report.
