Paul Hermkens (H36) F1 Stock Car rebuild

With the Netherlands now having more registered F1 stock car drivers than the UK, our thanks go to Rien Swinkels nephew and mechanic for Paul Hermkens (H36) for sending us some photos of their off season stockcar rebuild.
The car was built in 2007 together with a team member of stock car team Baarlo, Kid Coopmans who passed away in 2008. The Kid 3 symbol represents it being the third chassis Kid Coopmans built.

They decided last year to rebuilt the car during the winter period to hopefully get the car faster, with better handling and also to give the car a fresh look. The new colour scheme and the signwriting were completed by Dan Klynn.
