A dramatic pit stop overshadowed the penultimate race at Zolder Belcar. When entering pit box, the Ferrari of Hans Thiers brakes and hits three people with one of Dutch’s own team and a bystander from Valkenswaard. In the “Algemeen Dagblad” said Frank Thiers said: “Hans drove 60 according to the rules. Everything went normally, but when he arrived at his team-box there was a malfunction with the brakes. The car shot up, got our full team boss Massimo Bottiglieri and drove into a Dutch man. Massimo has only a broken wrist, but the Dutch gentleman was not ok. We pray for him that he comes through. We heard that he was happy his son not blame us. It was a technical defect. Due to the extremely hot weather was apparently the brake fluid to boil. Gallery after the jump!
The competition began in the early stages already an unhappy star. In the seventh lap, Ward Sluys and Wim Lumbeeck came together ending their race. Raf Vanthoor then crashed his Mercedes KRK on the oil trail of another participant.
After a start from the pitlane, the Audi R8 LMS WRT Francois Verbist and Enzo Ide was able to make up lost time, the Audi moved up to first place for a moment. The Audi R8 LMS Enzo Ide-Francois Verbist finished second followed by the Ford GT Bouvy combination of the Coens.
25 minutes before the end of the race committee decided to permanently discontinue the contest so the emergency services carry out their work properly.
Once the ProSpeed Porsche also drove past the Audi and then immediately built a solid lead and rode to victory and the title. Under dramatic circumstances, the team with the combination of Prospeed Goossens / Soulet (Porsche 911 GT3) secure the title.
“We are very happy with the title, especially after the missed pinnacle last year when we were half point short,” said Maxime Soulet.
