Dutch 1/8th IC Track Nationals Rd4 – Report

Round 4 of the Dutch 1/8th Nitro On-road Nationals was held at the MACH Heemstede track for the first time in a couple of years. In the premier NK class Roy Bakker was the man to beat and he would take the TQ from Joey Sorber in 2nd, Martin Zevenhoven 3rd and Robbin Hertong 4th. In the main final and following a somewhat chaotic start, Roy took the lead from Joey, Martin and Robin. Later Martin would find a way past Joey and he would eventually take over the lead following a mishap of Roy. Unfortunately his lead wouldn’t last as he suffered an engine problem three laps later while Joey also encountered problems that lead to a DNF. Up front and after the 30-minutes final, Roy Bakker (Capricorn) would bring home the win some two laps in front of Robbin Hertong (ARC) while Benny Ciere (ARC) secured himself the final podium spot following a strong performance in the final.
