Rob Janssen wins at Dutch EP On-road Nationals Rd4

Round 4 of the Dutch Electric On-road Nationals was recently held in Groningen in the north of the country. The usually bumpy track underwent a bit of a revision by the club, resulting in less bumps but a lower grip but at the end of the day it was the same for all competitors. Sunday, race day and the drivers were greeted by overnight rain. In the Touring class local racer Sybrand de Boer set the TQ in Q1 and Q2 with Rob Janssen being hot on his heels especially in Q2. In the opening main final and with a different tyre preparation Rob was able to hold contact with Sybrand until it started to rain again and the carnage began. With unusual racing lines Rob was able to get an advantage and he was able to pull away from the field until the others found out. A2 was completely rain soaked and only five drivers dared to attend the final that was ultimately won by Rob who was the fastest on rain tyres and pulling his unusual lines. Also attending in A3 despite having scored the overall win, as every result counts towards the overall championship, it was again Rob who excelled, taking his third win of the day and further improving his lead in the season standings.

Final results:
1. Rob Janssen
2. Tim Streefkerk
3. Jeroen Streefkerk
4. Sybrand De Boer
5. Stefan Rommens
6. Ronald Arts
7. Jitse Miedema
8. Martijn Spaans
9. Richard Arts
10.Oscar Koot
