Preview: 2018 Overseas World Final Entrants

The BriSCA F1 World Championship is  just around the corner. We already gave you the low down on the Brits in our first preview article, but here are the overseas drivers hoping to make it into the history books at Skegness.

B197 Jordy Lemmens

Jordy Lemmens raced at Skegness in July, picking up 8th place in the consolation and 12th in the meeting final. This will be his first World Final.

H6 Geert Jan Keijzer

Based in Helmond in Southern Holland, Geert Jan has a solitary heat win to his credit at Ipswich as well as good results at Northampton and Skegness in the past. Keijzer took the victory in the Grand National on the last World Final night at Skegness proving that he knows his way around the East Coast oval.

H12 Evert van den Berg

Evert van den Berg (H12) started his racing career in autocross, then moved across to stock cars in 1993 – his first car was nicknamed the pink panther. He’s raced in a number of World Finals, including last year’s visit to Ipswich.

H22 Louw Wobbes

Louw Wobbes (H22) has been a long time visitor to the UK. His last World Final appearance was at Coventry in 2016.

H38 Bart Koopmans

Bart has made appearances at most World Final weekends in recent years – even taking the chequered flag in a heat at the overseas Friday night meeting at Coventry in 2014. Unfortunately, he was later found to be a lap down and the win actually went to another Koopmans – Wendy who drives car H36.

H195 Harmen Zwerver 

Harmen Zwerver also made the trip across to the Skegness Speedweekend in July to get in some practice before the main event.

H217 Ron Kroonder

Rocket Ron is a veteran of the Dutch racing scene, at home on both shale or tarmac and could well be the only overseas driver (to date) to actually lead an F1 World Final. After a brief retirement a couple of years ago, Ron returned to the tracks with a bang. Kroonder was the highest overseas finisher at the last Skegness World Final back in 2012.

H228 Jan Roelof Wijbenga

The driver of the H228 machine hails from Koostertille and is a previous winner of the Golden Helmet and Masters of Shale titles on the Mainland. This is by no means his first World Final so he knows just what to expect.

H380 Christiaan Weyenberg

Christiaan raced at Skegness in May, picking up solid places in the heats on both days of the UK Open weekend. He also took part in last year’s Ipswich World Final.

H400 Roy Maessen

Roy is based in Ysselsteyn, near to Raceway Venray in the Netherlands, where he lifted the World Cup in both 2016 and 2018. Will he be able to continue his winning ways?

NZ1 William Humphries

William Humphries is the current New Zealand Superstock Champion. Humphries competed at Birmingham at the beginning of the month in the 422 car; finishing all 4 races including qualifying for the meeting final.

NZ2 Adam Joblin

Adam is one of three drivers for Joblin Motorsport Superstock Racing Team based in Eltham, Taranaki (NZ). Adam raced at Birmingham on 1st September and has since been out at Skegness practising in the ex-Rob Speak car.
