Kay de Wolf was victorious in the 85cc big wheel class, Scott Smulders was third, and Sem Beijer was ninth. Raff de Wolf was third in the 85cc small wheel class, and Milan Beijer scored a brace if tenths in the 65cc big wheel class.
On a well-prepared track, Milan Beijer qualified tenth in the 65cc big wheel class. A bad start, followed by a crash in race one gave him work to do. He recovered well to finish tenth. A decent start and a steady ride brought him home in tenth again in the second race. He was 11th overall for the event. Raff de Wolf qualified third in his class. In the first race he got away badly, barely inside the top 30. He rode like a man possessed, and soon found himself in fourth. He crashed when going for third spot , and had to be content with fourth. The second race was a virtual repeat of the first, only this time he managed to finish third.
Kay de Wolf claimed, a some has come to expect, the pole position. He started the first race in fourth, and initially battled to find his rhythm. He soon recovered and slotted into second, with time just running out to claim the win. In the second race Kay held steady in second until he could pounce when the leader made a mistake, and he took the race – and overall victories.
Scott Smulders qualified third, and after a good start in race one, he slotted into fourth. He took some time to pass the third rider, and by then the leaders had opened up a gap. After making good some places in the second race, he found himself in third again, and held it steady till the end. His brace of thirds were good for third overall.
Sem Beijer posted the 11th qualifying time. A good start nestled him into the top five in race one, and just as it seemed as if he was headed for a top four finish, a mistake dropped him to 12th. He eventually recovered to 8th. In the second race, Sem came from outside the top 20 to eventually get to 10th.
The team will participate in the next round of the Open Dutch Championship series at Oirschot next weekend.
