Dutch Electric On-road Nationals Rd5 – Report

Dutch Electric On-road Nationals Rd5 – Report

Round five of the Dutch electric on-road nationals was held in the North of the Netherlands at the Real80 track in Groningen. Beside the usual Touring Car Modified and Stock as well as Formula classes the event also saw the running of a supporting Club class. Saturday’s practice sessions were run in perfect weather conditions and many drivers made use of the opportunity to adapt their cars to the bumpy track surface. The nice weather also held up for Sunday and the schedule with three rounds of qualifying and triple mains could go ahead a planned. In the Modified class Rob Janssen (Team Magic) took the TQ from Mitchell van Es (Yokomo) and Bram Lagerwey (Xray) while in the Stock class Sybrand de Boer, Vincent Koers and Fokke Groen made for an Xray 1-2-3 after the qualifiers.

The Formula class had Martijn van der Heijden (Xray) coming out fastest from Michel van der Velden (Tamiya) and Raimond Kieftenbeld (Xray). Last but not least in the club class it was Dennis Been (Xray) who took the TQ from Marcel Pinkster (TOP) and Gerrie Swarts (Xray). After the lunch break the finals would be held and despite the sun shining the track conditions changed a bit due to a big dust cloud that covered the track, making things a bit unpredictable. In the Modified finals Mitchell van Es and Rob Janssen swapped places compared to the qualifying result with Jetze Reitsma (Spec-R) rounding out the top 3 result.

1. Mitchell van Es – Yokomo
