Lotte van Drunen of the Beurspro KTM MX team claimed victory at the race simulation in Nederweert. Lotte took an early lead in the final and won by a large margin.
After having worked hard during the last few months to keep her condition in top form, Lotte had the first opportunity today to measure her speed against the male opposition to see if she could take the battle to them.
The Peelrijders organization at Nederweert had organized a race simulation event, which attracted a huge entry, including some of the top Dutch Masters of Motocross and European Championship 85cc riders. There were four qualifying groups, of which Lotte was slotted into the first. She easily won her qualifying heat, gaining direct entry into the A Final.
Lotte got a good drop in the final, but just missed the holeshot, and had to slot into second position initially. She immediately went on the offensive, and took over the lead. She built up the lead lap after lap, and crossed the finish line first, by a huge margin.
Lotte wishes to thank the organizers for a great initiative, a well-organized event, and a fun day.
