On Saturday October 15, Piet de Gier, Eric Sliphorst and Arjan Oudejans drove the last DNRT 8hr endurance race of the season together at the beautiful Zandvoort F1 track. A good result in class could mean also winning the 2022 championship, as prior to the start we were leading the ranks in the SuperSport class from previously finishing 2nd and 1st respectively.
Conditions varied throughout the day, with a wet, slippery track from the start. This caused a lot of collisions, resulting in frequent code 60’s (today better known as ‘virtual safety car’). Our experienced team managed to turn those events into an advantage by performing many pit stops while cars were driving slowly on the track. Despite the varying weather conditions, our drivers kept putting in solid lap times versus the competition, resulting in another first place in the SuperSport class (6th overall) and thereby also winning of the 2022 championship. A phenomenal result which the other drivers in the previous races, Mick de Jonge and Thijs Raaijmakers, have contributed to also. Thanks to the team, thanks to the sponsors, and thanks to our loyal supporters. Team MTB-Motorsport. For a nice storyline on the entire day have a look here: Abma Motorsport | Facebook
