2016 Race 1 @ RC@CZ

It’s within the Zolder Circuit that the RC@CZ club as organized the first race of 2016 season. They have a great big track surrounded by pines, with all the circuit facilities around, it’s really a lovely place. The organization has perfectly handled what is the new record of entries for the serie. Thanks to all newcomers to come race and have fun with us!

Race day has been completely dry and even sunny in the afternoon, which allowed the track to dry out from previous days rain along the day. This made tire and setup choices a bit more tricky.

In Pro2 qualification, Samuel Castel (TLR 22SCT) wins the first round, Géry Ledocq (Kyosho SC6) the second, Nicolas Evens (TLR 22SCT) the third and final one. Nicolas takes TQ over Géry and Samuel. Those 3 drivers have a quite similar pace a bit ahead of Tom Pierard (TLR 22SCT), Laurent Halluin (TeamC TM2SC) and Philippe Hautecoeur (Associated SC5M) battling for 4th spot. They finish in that order.

In first round of Pro2 A final, Nicolas, Géry and Samuel pull away. Mid-race Géry took the first spot, to loose it to Nicolas in the last lap, with Samuel close behind. Nicolas could pull away in next 2 rounds and take the wins with a margin, getting the overall win. Battle for second included Laurent Halluin who was getting faster and faster with his brand new car. He succeeded to take second place in second round ahead of Samuel and Géry. In last round, they had a close battle being separated by only 3 seconds at the end, Samuel ahead of Géry and Laurent. Final order is the same. In B final, Emilie Halluin (TeamC TM2SC) takes first 2 rounds with a good margin and takes the win.

In Pro4 first round, Nicolas Evens wins the first 2 rounds, first one with a margin over Sam, second quite close but without real battle. Let’s hope Sam gets more confortable in next race for some more action. Raf is a consistent 3rd in first 2 rounds, ahead of Sam Damman (TLR Ten-SCTE) in every round.

1. Evens Nicolas – Losi Ten-SCTE
2. Puttevils Sam – Losi Ten-SCTE
