Truggy

Last weekend Nbr Mol organised the final race of their winter blackjack race. Blackjack means heats of 21 minutes for everybody, so no qualifications, finals etc. just 21 minutes of racing. The fastest heat of the weekend would be the winner.

The complete weekend was very wet so all drivers were very happy with the big heated tent Nbr had placed.

Buggy class had 3 heats with Belgian, Dutch and German drivers. Jorg Van Leuken competed all heats with Markus Feldman and Paul Geelen. After 5 heats Jorg Van Leuken managed 31 rounds with only 3 seconds less as Markus Feldman. Paul Geelen toke third place.
The final championship ranking we saw youngster Sander Van Genechten take victory.

Truggy class also had 2 heats with international drivers. Rc-Speedhouse boss Bjorn Nagels won 3 out of 5 heats but had to leave 1st place to Kris Verlies. The final championship was a close battle which Bjorn Nagels won.

Germany Soccer WCup Octopus OracleLast weekend took place the 7th Rd. of  Truggy Cup at Helmond. Coming from Oberhousen where we used to have a good friend (rest in Peace), who predicted the Spanish victory at World Cup, Paul the Octopus.

We do not know for sure if Paul had time enough before dying to predict also Bas De Konik victory in last round.

Unfortunately Helmond track appeared really wet on sunday morning. The attendance was not so high as in previuos rounds, maybe becasue of the weather forecast.

This was the final result:

Student:
1 – Marc Jansen
2- Gerrit Beunis
3 – Akko van Oss

Master:
1 – Bas de Konink
2 – Dave Liekens (Merlin Fuel)

Last weekend the drivers of the Truggycup were racing at the great track of Oberhausen.

Together with this event there was a round of NRW cup.

Oberhausen

These 2 cups resulted in 68 drivers on sunday morning.

The weather was dry and the people of Stoppelhopser Oberhausen had everything under control to make it a great day.

TQ was taken by the Xray of Jorg van Leuken, in front of Dave Liekens (mugen mbx6T) and Kris Verlies (Losi).

Main final was mixed truggycup and Nrw which resulted in 8 truggycup and 4 nrw drivers.

From the start of the final dutch Jorg van Leuken and Belgian Dave Liekens ran away, they were both to strong for all other competitors.  After 30 minutes the gap between Jorg van Leuken and Dave Liekens was only 3 seconds, so very close racing.  Jorg van Leuken took victory in front of Dave Liekens and Bas de Konink.

El fin de semana pasado se celebró en el circuito del ARENA Racing Club, en Atenas, la 2ª prueba del Buggy y Truggy Masters Griego.

Stelios Madianos (Losi – Picco – Merlin Fuel) se hizo con la victoria en categoría B de las dos modalidades, Truggy y Buggy.

Madianos

Karousos Aris se hizo con la 6ª posición en una carrera en la que con más de 70 inscritos, cerca de un 35% de los participantes confiaron en Merlin Fuel para disputarla.

El pasado fin de semana se disputó la primera ronda del campeonato Truggy de Holanda en la pista de Almelo.

La pista del club, se reconstruyó con arena, arcilla y césped artificial, para hacerla adecuada a las prestaciones de los Truggies.

Durante las clasificatorias, Bas De Konik, fue el piloto más rápido, seguido de Jorg Van Leuken.

Después de las mangas, el estado de la pista recordaba más a la superficie lunar que a un circuito de TT. Debido a su composición llegaron a formarse “Cráteres” de hasta 1 metro de profundidad, lo que convirtió la final en un espectáculo. Los pilotos, lejos de mostrarse preocupados por el estado de la pista, agradecieron el aspecto que presentaba, ya que corren la mayor parte de carreras sobre hierba artificial y para gran parte de ellos esto era un aliciente más.

Destacar que en la carrera había un trofeo especial para el último clasificado de la final (10ª), de ahí el añadido en el podium. Esta

Contra pronóstico la lluvia no hizo acto de presencia y los participantes en las dos modalidaes, “Veteranos” e “Iniciación” pudieron disfrutar de un animado día de carreras con un cielo despejado.

Destacar la segunda plaza en la categoría de iniciación de Brenda Schutten en la categoría de iniciación, (Foto izquierda) que marcó unos excelentes registros en la pista habilitada para la ocasión.

La modalidad de Truggies, está captando un importante número de adeptos en Holanda, gracias, entre otras cosas, a los esfuerzos del portal Truggy.nl y RC-Junkies.com en su promoción y organización de eventos.
