2014 Race 3 @ BPT

Third race of the year is organized by the Belgium Power Team based in Merchtem.The club is a regular host of the Cup now and we always have a great time there. This year the track layout has been changed to a more technical layout, pretty challenging with a big off-camber turn. Great track, great facility, great club!
