Lars Van Berkel Second at Open Dutch 500 in Lelystad

Lars van Berkel of the Husqvarna SKS Racing NL team finished second at the Open Dutch Championship 500 event at Lelystad. He raced in the leading group in both races, finishing third - and second in the heats respectively.

Van Berkel qualified fifth on the hard Lelystad track. He enjoyed the track and went to the start gate full of confidence. This resulted in a holeshot in the first race, and he kept his lead for the first 15 minutes of the heat until he got passed. He settled in on the heels of the new leader and a great tussle ensued. Unfortunately, he lost some time when they came across a lapper, and lost another position as a result, eventually finishing third. 

Van Berkel slotted into second position off the second start. He held a consistant one and a half second deficit to the leader, but just could not make the lunge to pass, eventually crossing the line in second position. This also earned him the second overall classification for the day.

Teammate Rick Wennekes had an outing in the Open Dutch Championship 125 at the same track the week before. The track was still flat and fast, and he qualified 22nd. He had a good start in the first race, but an early mistake cost him a lot of positions. He recovered to get back into the points with a 19th.

A reasonable start in the second race gave Rick a decent platform, and again he added to his points tally with another 19th.  On a day of 19 positions, this was also his overall classification. He was less than thrilled with this, and has vowed to work hard to set matters straight in the upcoming races.
