The first endurance race of this season was the DNRT 8hr at the Zandvoort track. Driving as part of the KOOL-MTB-NRG team we managed to get to 2nd place in class until almost three hours into the race we broke a driveshaft. Replacement took 20 mins. With 10 laps behind we had our work carved out for us. We worked our way up the rankings in the last 5 hours and still managed to finish 5th in class when crossing the finish line. Next endurance – DNRT 10hrs on Sunday July 22nd
Season 2018 is looking to be an interesting and varied racing season, with exciting tracks like Spa-Francorchamps included as well as a couple nice endurance opportunities. The DNRT 2018 calendar can be found below (we compete in the Auto’s A class) as well as under the calendar tab on this website.
Unfortunately team KOOL-MTB-NRG was not able to complete the 10hr endurance race at Zandvoort. Severe damage in the very first lap meant significant time loss and ongoing trouble during the rest of this eventful day. 1 hour before the finish we decided to retire the car. No podium this year, but still another fantastic 8 hours of endurance racing…..
