Well-organized and sober race at the Circuit van Zandvoort

Race report

In a somewhat featureless race among the Dutch dunes of Zandvoort, ITR star driver Michael Andersen held the uncomfortable role of race-obstructor.

On the ultimate lap he lost control for a split-second while negotiating the treacherous Jan de Wyker bend. In the same space/time slot were 31-lap race leader Steffen Madsen and his 31-lap stalker, norwegian Esben Tiple, easing it home and suddenly falling into a freak collision that resulted in a swap of positions.

Michael Andersen nevertheless topped the ITR-effort with a P9, virtually followed by Per Einarsson (P10) and Henrik Christensen (P11) right in his wake.

Søren Bærholm, who had shown Ferrari-driver Gert Sterner to the back slot of the grid with a last minute sprint qualification lap, ended up as next-to-last but still two laps ahead of said Ferraristo.

Despite the meticulous preparation of cars and drivers it has been impossible for the Scuderia to maintain the impessive 5th place held a few races ago. But all the fans still regard Into The Red Motor Racing Ltd as the best team in the league ... and certainly the team sporting the most beautiful pit-girls.
