2014 Race 6 @ MBV Kampenhout

Sixth race of the year is hosted by MBV Kampenhout and the worldwide famous Heremans family. Being used to organize many national and international events, the club is providing a perfect organization and an awesome astroturf track. Track layout is difficult and doesn’t give much opportunity to rest, focus and consistency are key to get a good run.

As usual the day started on a wet and slippy track but it dried out before the first qualification heat and offered tons of grip. For this race it’s been decided to run 4 qualification rounds instead of the usual 3.

Doing the fastest time of those 3, Julian André (TLR 22SCT) is second on the grid, ahead of Laurent Halluin (Associated SC10) and Philippe Hautecoeur (Associated SC10).

In Pro4, Thierry Matthieu (Tekno 410SCT) who leads global ranking faces great opposition from 2 local drivers, Sam Puttevils (TLR Ten-SCTE) and Walter Grauwels (Associated SC10).

During first 2 rounds of Pro2 A final, Nicolas Evens has a start-to-finish lead and converts his TQ in an overall win.

In second round, Julian André succeeds to keep his second place ahead of Laurent Halluin and Philippe Hautecoeur. Nicolas not racing the final round, Julian wins it to take the second place overall. Mathis ends that round in 4th place, enough for him to be on last place of the podium. Pascal Bouffioux ends up tied in point with Mathis but misses the podium on the quickest run.
