Venray – April 9th 2012 Meeting Overview

Around twenty cars raced on the newly modified Venray stockcar track with Danny Smidt taking the first heat from Geert Jan Keijzer H6 and Evert van den Berg H12. After being disqualified from a podium position for a weight issue after the first heat, Jessy de Bruyn H399 made up for lost time by winning the second heat ahead of the UK’s Gary Castell H247. The third heat saw Louw Wobbes H22 take the flag with Danny Smidt H148 being disqualified on account of his car’s ride height. Ron Kroonder H217 reeled in long time leader Theo van Lier H57 to take the flag with Gary Castell rounding out the top three. Louw Wobbes was the day’s highest point scorer just one point ahead of arch rival Ron Kroonder.
