The second edition of the international event called “race real dirt” was held over the weekend. MAC Vlijmen was the host of this event with a nice prepared flowing clay track. The three-day event started with a full day of free practice on Saturday 19 may followed by 2WD Buggy on Sunday and 4WD buggy on Monday. During free practice a lot of laps where turned and the track started to groove up, making it faster and more consistence to drive. With good weather planned for the racedays this was the perfect condition for a good race. On Sunday morning, it was immediately clear that the top of the list was very close and great racing was in the making. After the first qualification, Wesley van Helmond was on top of the list. He wasn’t so fortunate in Q2, where a last lap crash allowed Bruno Heremans to take the top spot. However, after four heats of qualification it was Wouter Wynen with a win in Q3 & Q4 who secured his pole position.
