Thnaks Very Happy

Was a great weekend

Both free practices are very wet, so the qualify was the first time I drive with slicks



With the qualify we had not the right set up, wich means the 11th position.

The first race I had a great start went from 11 to 8 th place. Everyone took the inside but i take the outside wich was the right choice.
Had some fight with Michel Florie, and finished 8th.

Second race was much better.
From the first lap there was a group of 9 drivers within only 2 seconds.
After a few laps Rogier spun and Shirley couldn't avoid him. With seven cars in only one second it was VERY close racing. In the begin of the last lap i was 7th but with only 5 corners to go. Someone pushed Henk Vuik and he spun. Rogier Jongejans and Simon Knap passed him on the outside and I took the inside wich was faster aand gives me the 4th place. With only 0.069 sec behind number 3 i passed the finish line



For the duthies here is a 9 pages long report.
