Milan Holthuis takes Dutch 200mm Nats Rd2 win

Milan Holthuis takes Dutch 200mm Nats Rd2 win

Genk in Belgium played host to the second round of the Dutch Nitro On-road Nationals. The weekend started off dry on Saturday and even the two opening qualifiers on Sunday would be held on a dry track but for round three the rain came. Daan Jacobs (Serpent) took the TQ from Capricorn driver Milan Holthuis while Roy Bakker (Shepherd) completed the top 3 result. Just in time for the main finals the rain poured down even more, making for tricky conditions in the double 20 minute finals. The opening leg then was won by Daan but as usual rain mixes things up quite heavily and so the second and decisive leg was a pretty entertaining affair. Milan would run into engine problems after it refused to run on water instead of fuel but when servo issues hindered Daan, Milan was able to grab the win meaning both would end tie on points. The tie-breaker then handed Milan a narrow win as he scored the faster run. Daan had to settle for second while newcomer Mark Been completed the top 3 result.

Thanks to Mark Holthuis for the report.
