Rick Vrielijnck wins opening Dutch 1/8th national

The opening round of the Dutch 1/8th Nitro On-road National Championship was held last weekend at the Real 80 track in Groningen in the North of the Netherlands. 51 drivers where welcomed with sunny weather conditions which lasted the whole weekend. This year the Dutch championship is run under a different racing format. Both (Premier) NK and (secondary) Nomac class, drive together in a combined “ABC” system. After the combined race, seperate championship points are given to the drivers in their respective class. After qualification all drivers are divided in this ABC system, and per lower final 2 bump up spots are available for the 2 fastest drivers to bump up to the next final. Because of this system, there where very nice battles in almost al lower finals to be seen between drivers fighting for these 2 bump-up spots. After all finals where run, Rick Vrielijnck won the A-Final, and came out as winner of the premier NK class. 2nd spot went to Joey Sorber, and 3rd to Jeffrey Rietveld.
