Emmen (Holland) – April 2nd 2011

In his thirtieth year of stock car photography, Tonny Wissing shares some photos and information from the opening Emmen meeting of 2011.

Saturday 2nd April was a very nice day with good weather for Emmen Speedway to host the first formula 1 stock car race of the 2011 season in Holland. This was also the start of the fourth year of Emmen Speedway.
