Thomas Dehaibe Is Crowned Lotus Cup Europe Champion In Zolder

1 post in this topic

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.

      Reigning Lotus Cup Europe Champion Jérémy Lourenço followed up his maiden overall win at Dijon- Prenois with a double victory at Magny-Cours this weekend in rounds five and six of the 2015 championship.
      Reigning Lotus Cup Europe Champion Jérémy Lourenço followed up his maiden overall win at Dijon-Prenois with a double victory at Magny-Cours this weekend (30/31 May) in rounds five and six of the 2015 championship. Meanwhile another dominant performance in the Production class has allowed John Rasse to stretch his title lead.
      Lourenço qualified on pole position at the former French Grand Prix venue, but was passed by teammate and fellow front row starter Xavier Georges as the opening race got underway. The Exige V6 pair escaped the clutches of Greg Rasse's Evora as they fought their own battle, then Lourenco forced his way into the lead with just a few laps remaining to take the chequered flag.
      In the second race, Lourenço sailed into a lead that he would not relinquish, whilst Georges fought another battle that he would eventually lose, with Greg Rasse passing at mid-distance. However the Belgian was unable to catch the leader and trailed home two seconds in arrears.
      A strong performance in qualifying helped Christophe Lisandre to a brace of 2-Eleven class victories, with Nicolas Ferrer achieving a similar feat in the Open class to take the first encounter, before back row starter David Harvey claimed the honours second time out.
      John Rasse's Production class double keeps him ahead of the rest in the title race, and it was a similar story on track, with the Belgian lapping several seconds clear of his opposition. Thierry Hedoin was second both times, with Philippe VanPevenaeyge and Sven Pettersson sharing the final podium places.
      The next Lotus Cup Europe rounds will take place at Spa-Francorchamps on 10/11 July.

      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.
