Jonathan Walker and Gregory Rasse shared the Lotus Cup Europe spoils at Zolder this weekend, returning to winning ways after a tough time at Spa-Francorchamps last time out. Polesitter Walker’s results have aided his championship challenge, however a pair of 2-Eleven class victories has propelled Jeremy Lorenco into the title lead with just one round to go, after a tough weekend for rival Xavier Georges. Phillippe Loup finished third to Walker in race one, whilst Belgian Thierry Verheist took the final podium place in the second encounter. Meanwhile there were two class wins for Nicolas Ferrer (Exige),and Egon Burkos (Lotus Cup Eastern Europe). David Harvey and Eric van’t Oever shared the Open class honours. A triumphant return for Greg Rasse’s brother John saw him take the Production class win in the opening race with a superb ninth overall, twelve places ahead of runner-up and title challenger Andrew Wright. The Englishman fought back to lead the Belgian in race two, but the pair couldn’t overcome Dave Carr for the category win.
Thomas Dehaibe was crowned Lotus Cup Europe Champion at Zolder, becoming an FIA International Series title-holder at the Belgian circuit. England’s Jonathan Walker led the opening race, only to be passed by Denmark’s Nikolaj Ipsen with just four laps remaining, as the pair pulled clear of the field. They also contested the second encounter, however Ipsen fell to seventh place in the final laps, whilst Walker succumbed to a puncture. Needing to finish the race to secure the V6 class title, the Englishman made a late pitstop and ended the day in 13th place. This left Gregory Rasse to take the final victory of the season, heading an Evora 1-2 with Thierry Verheist just eight tenths of a second shy at the chequered flag. Jeremy Lourenco ended his year on a high with two third places and the 2-Eleven class title, whilst David Harvey claimed the Open class championship and Anthony Fournier the Exige Cup honours. Dehaibe won the first Production race on course to his title success. However Laurent Feve took the class lead two laps from the end of the second race to deny him a second victory of the weekend. Next season’s Lotus Cup Europe championship will visit Le Mans, Zandvoort, Spa-Francorchamps, Dijon-Prenois, Zolder and Hockenheim.
