Second race of the 2014 serie visits another new belgian track, located in Seraing. Infrastructure is already quite impressive for a one year old club. The track has a fun layout with few low speed corners, elevations and good jumps, allowing close racing. Another great feature of it is its ability to dry fast. It’s been pretty handy as we got some showers over the day, but racing went on anyway.
Battle for TQ in Pro2 is pretty close with Julian André (Associated SC10), Philippe Hautecoeur (Associated SC10) and Nicolas Evens (TLR 22SCT) taking a leg each. Philippe and Julian are tied with also a second place for each, but Julian takes TQ with a better time.
Thierry Matthieu (Tekno SCT410) dominates Pro4 qualification like he did in Brussels. Nicolas Evens (TLR Ten-SCTE) follows in front of Jean-Yves Konings (Associated SC10).
Starting from second place on the grid of Pro2 finals, Philippe Hautecoeur secures the overall win by taking the first two legs. First win is with some margin in front of Julian André while second is a close fight with Nicolas Evens. Julian takes the third and final leg, granting himself the second place overall. For his first appearance at the SCT Cup, Fabio Cumps wins the B final.
