Reimon Bos won the SuperCup of the National Hotrods last Sunday at the wheel of his Opel Tigra – The Dutchman beat Johan Sanders and Erik Emming at Raceway Venray
One of the most important races of the National Hotrods on the mainland is in the books: Reimon Bos has won the SuperCup of the class at Raceway Venray. Starting from pole position, he defended his lead against Johan Sanders and Erik Emming to take the title for the second time since 2019.
40 laps were completed in the SuperCup on the approximately 350-meter Autospeedway oval in Ysselsteyn, the Netherlands. Bos ultimately had a 1.010-second lead over Sanders, who finished second in his Peugeot 206. Erik Emming crossed the finish line in third place, more than eight seconds behind, in his Volkswagen Corrado.
Christian Simon and Peter Knapperts completed the top-5 behind the leading trio. A total of 18 drivers competed in the SuperCup of the oval touring car class. Top drivers John van de Bosch, Niek Damstra, Lars Dreschel and Winnie Holtmanns had to retire from the race early. In total, only ten drivers crossed the finish line. Rounding out the top-10 were Leon van de Kevie, Jeroen Kurvers, Delia Horstkamp, Patrick Bruckschlegel and Tim Dreschel.
Before the SuperCup there were still two heats, which brought important points for the track championship. The first race was won by van de Bosch ahead of Lars Dreschel and Bos. Simon finished behind in fourth place ahead of Holtmanns. The second race was won by Emming, who left Holtmanns and Bos behind. Sanders and Lars Dreschel completed the top 5.
After the SuperCup race there was still the so-called revenge run, which, however, did not bring any points and was not part of the compulsory program. Therefore only nine drivers started in the last race of the day. Van de Kevie won ahead of Sanders and Bos, while Bruckschlegel finished fourth for a solid top-5 result. Horstkamp finished the race in fifth place.
Bos not only secured the SuperCup trophy but also the day’s win. The Dutchman collected a total of 51 points, while Emming finished second with 46 points on his tally. Sanders was third with 45 points, followed by Simon and Knapperts. Van de Kevie finished ahead of Kurvers in sixth place, while Horstkamp, Bruckschlegel and Holtmanns rounded off the top 10.
