2016 CHAMPIONS AND GRAND FINAL QUALIFIERS of Van Kalmthout. It’s not over until the chequered flag, and Adrien Renaudin knows it. Lars Lamborelle starts the final from the pole position and he holds it while trying to open a gap over his rivals. An accident between Denis Mavlanov and Jordan BrownNutley (Dan Holland Racing) helps the polesitter who makes the better of this situation gaining a little advantage on the Frenchman. Now the chase begins: Renaudin pushes as hard as he can to catch the leader, but he is not fast enough to overtake him. The last lap of duel is simply breathtaking. Third place is decided on the last metres, too. Here Jordan Brown-Nutley finishes
onto the podium ahead of the new vice champion Gary Donnelly and Swedish girl Jessica Backman (Daems Racing). Josh White (Coles Racing) who finishes the finals in 14th and eighth place, completes the top three of the championship podium. DD2 Constantin Schoell (Daems Racing) is the man to beat in the DD2 qualifying: Austrian driver is over a tenth of a second faster than Frenchman Alexis Coursault (Coursault) while Abdullah Al Rawahi (Birelart Middle East) from Oman impresses by a strong third place being even quicker than both championship rivals: Ferenc Kancsar (VPDR) from Hungary
DD2 CHAMPION KEVIN LUDI
and Kevin Ludi (Spirit Racing) from Switzerland complete the ranking in fourth and fifth place. Schoell continues his strong performance througout heats celebrating two wins and a third place that give him prefinal pole position. Dzianis Slavinski (Dan Holland Racing) rounds out the first row, thanks to a win in heats. Local driver Coursault follows in third position ahead of championship leader Kevin Ludi (Spirit Racing) and Italy’s Cosimo Durante (Franco Durante). On Sunday, Kevin Ludi shows how to win prefinal and title after a great comeback: the Swiss ace falls to sixth after the start, but from that moment he is simply unstoppable and lap after lap he is able to find some serious speed overtaking Cosimo Durante and Constantin Schoell showing the way from the top spot. Second position for Schoell followed by Ferenc Kancsar who started from the tenth place. Without Kevin Ludi, the final race seems to be only another day in the office for Austria’s Schoell, who simply pulls away from the pack managing the gap until the chequered flag. Ville Viiliainen (Heikki Vaisanen) follows the leader from the second position, without a possibility to attack him. Italian Cosimo Durante tries to defend the third position from Dzianis Slavinski but the Dan Holland Racing driver gets the better of him on lap seven, stepping on the podium.
