Despite an allnight hard work, the racetruck of Werner Lenz (SL Racing) was too damaged. All other participants entered the Timed Practice. In Race 3 Stuart Oliver was again a very powerfull opponent. Martin Gibson had some problems and had to enter the pit, but he could enter the final two rounds of the race. Cees Zandbergen(Rainbow Warrior) and Clemens Hecker used every inch of the track fighting for position 2. Winner:
1. Stuart Oliver
2. Clemens Hecker
3. Cees Zandbergen

Race 4 became a special race. This final race started in Reversed Grit. Stuart Oliver ploughed thru the racetrack and even lapped some participants. Cees Zandbergen racetruck had some issues and could not battle for the podium this time. Luke Garret, drove a very solid race en got an opportunity to climb the podium.
The race ended 2 rounds earlier, to honour the racing team of Ome Wout. During the outlap Jan van Holland was held behind for a brief moment. All other racetrucks parked on both sides at the finishline and so, give a tribute to the retirement of Jan van Holland as a racedriver. After 38 years the racingteam Ome Wout stops with truckracing. The racetruck will be stored in their private museum.

The final podiums and the scores in the championship will follow a.s.a.p.

After qualifying, the racetruck of SL Racing (Werner LEnz) was damaged to much. Hopefully he will attend the races at sunday. All teams are busy getting preperations one for qualifying and the races. Everybody is happy and the sun is showing off all weekender which is excellent!
Circuit Zolder has straight sections where the trucks will reach up to 160 km/hour, followed by some sharp curves who will be hard on the brakes. Nimda Kraal remebers this circuit, but ‘It has been a while’. Team Ome Wout has mixed feelings, They are preparing for qualifying, knowing it is for the last time, they will be present at a paddock.
There are 14 teams present and every inch is occupied at the paddock. From Engeland we present you: Luke Garret, Stuart Oliver and Martin Gibson. And present are Cees Zandbergen, Frans Smit, Rodi Smit, Jan van Holland, Nimda Kraal, Werner Lenz, Bjorn Tijhuis, Dirk Behnke and the Belgium driver Sebastien Delchambre. Unfortunately Racingteam van Drunen and John Powell had to cancel.

Race 1: During the first round the rubber tore off from the rightback wheel, but Ome Wout’s racetruck did not experience any trouble, so Jan kept racing. The 2 trucks of Oliver and Gibson are strong and they gained position 1 en 2. Third place is for Cees Zandbergen.
Race 2: Started with a reversed grit. The winners of race 1 start to work their way forward on the track. Many battles are seen in the midfield and Clemens Hecker challenges Zandbergen for 3rd and 4th place. But again Oliver, Gibson and Zandbergen stepped onto the podium.

Due to the rain, the final race ended behind the pacetruck. Erwin Kleinnagelvoort overtook ray Colema’s first position and was quickly followed by Cees Zandbergen and WErner Lenz. Becaus one contestant got off track the safetytruck had to enter the track. There was not enough time left to restart this race, so the named above got the first positions.

Testing day at Zandvoort 2018
compilationphoto testday 2018 with racetrucks at Zandvoort
Before the races of april there have been tests, measuring the soundlevels of a racetruck at circuit Zandvoort. Goal is to keep them below 95 db
Soundlevel testing with racetrucks
28-03-2018 | For Truckraceteam Flying Dutchman and Clemens Hecker it was a possibility to test their racetrucks, and Cees Zandbergen with Frans Smit used the time to find all quirks in the racetruck of Rainbow Warrior Truck Racing. The morning was used to measure and possibly adjust the sound level. Objective: to be well below 95dB. This was achieved by adjusting the position of the exhaust or by fitting a damper. Racing Team Ome Wout gets a big compliment! Because of their efforts (contrary to everyone’s expectations), their Detroit Diesel had the lowest sound level.

No first race due to crash Werner Lenz
The qualifying was a slippery circuit due to the heavy rain shower. A number of race trucks ended up in the gravel. Some of them managed to escape it. Fortunately, there was enough time for the first race to carry out the necessary repairs. At 16:10 the race started behind the pacetruck of Krommenhoek, but it went wrong after the Tarzan corner. 3 trucks side by side, pushing and pulling a bit, and Werner Lenz got unlucky. Because of his speed he rolled to his side. Because of safety issue, the rest of the race was driven behind the pacetruck. Werner Lenz expects to appear on the starting grid tomorrow.

First we want to congratulate Björn Tijhuis, Ferry van Drunen and Sébastien Lechambre with their first official entry in truckracing. Björn has obtained his driverslicense in januari, but is a wellknown driver at the Truckstar festival. The teams have worked very hard to get everything in order for the Easter Races which resulted in a nice line-up.

After the testday on friday, the teams were able to tune their trucks if needed. So on saturday they could start with confidence on their qualifying laps to gain a good position for the first race.

The formationlap for first race was opened bij the pace-truck of the Vlastuin truckbilding. After the red lights went out nice battles were seen like for 2nd and 3rd positon, between Erwin Kleinnagelvoort and Cees Zandbergen. Jan van Holland and Rian van Koeveringe were also close, battling for their points and position. Every time on the straight end before the Tarzan-curve Rian had to work hard to keep Jan beside, but preferably behind him. A special mention for Sébastien Delchambre for getting every round a better result with his rented racetruck.

Race 2 and 3 on sunday was opened with the very nice Scania - S, pace-truck of our main sponsor Krommenhoek on a wet track. Race 2 gave quite a spectacle because of rainshowers, which made it difficult to keep the racetruck between the lines. Some contestants, like Frans Smit, Marco Donk, Björn Tijhuis, Rian van Koeveringe and Cees Zandbergen had to work real hard to get their times within acceptable limits, after they inspected the gravel next to track.

Werner Lenz held a firm grip on first postion with his powerfull truck, but had to keep an eye out for Erwin Kleinnagelvoort and Cees Zandbergen.

During race 3 the drivers were a bit more adjusted to race the wet track. At the start of the race Cees Zandbergen kept Werner Lenz behind him, but eventually he had to settle for second position. Frans Smit did a great job, by overtaking several competitors. Rian van Koeveringe and Ferry van Drunen kept changing postion with each other during the whole race. Multiple drive-through penalty’s ware given due to racing over the lines and some were drivng a little too fast. This made racecontrol end the race 5 minutes early. Secondly because this action, Frans Smit gained first position.

The first podium of the Dutch Truck Racing Championship 2017 is:
1. Werner Lenz
2. Cees Zandbergen
3. Erwin Kleinnagelvoort

We like to thank all drivers and teams for a great racing weekender.
All this was made possible by our sponsors, our crew and the assistance of circuit Zandvoort, the marshalls and all employees.

Do you want to be a clubmember?
The promo team was represented by Ron, John and Leon (from left to right). They informed the people about truckracing and Dutch Truck Racing association. In the background some videos of truck races played in which our members were represented. One old movie from 1982 was played form the festival at Zandvoort, where Olaf Mol (a famous dutch racesports reporter)in his early years could be heard. This appealed to many people.

The explanation of CLUB 100 was well received, and we welcome some people as new clubmembers.
The next Dutch Truck Racing presentation is December 17th and 18th 2016 at the Mega Truck Festival(Den Bosch).
We hope to see you there and to welcome you as a member.

Werner drove his racetruck around in the demo hall, on both days and the audience really enjoyed it. He even made a donut!

It’s been quiet around the racing trucks on Dutch circuits. Since the truck racing teams want to drive the Dutch circuits a solution was needed. Ron Gerritsma was approached for this. Considering he has been a coordinator truckraces for 5 years, has built up a large network, he turned out to be the right person. After a long period consulting with the teams, seeking enthusiastic volunteers, the association Dutch Truck Racing (DTR) was founded in September 2016.

The goal of the association is to organize truck races in 2017, during major events at Circuit Park Zandvoort and possibly other circuits in the future. Through participation of the teams, truckraces will be back and provide a spectacle for a broad audience during a race weekend!

The regulations of Dutch Truck Racing are derived from the European FIA regulations and filed at the KNAF. Therefore it is an open championship, organized by Dutch Truck Racing, open to all truck racing teams, dutch and abroad!

Without sponsorship, it is very difficult to finance these races. Therefore we ask enthusiasts and interested parties, to help funding with a financial contribution. A nice way is to help is, to become a supporter of Dutch Truck Racing CLUB 100.

At this moment we are busy with the calendar for 2017, where some great races and activities are planned like the Easter races at Zandvoort April 15th and 16th, the program for the Mittelrhein cup at the Nurburgring and the final races at Zandvoort.

If you’re curious about the members of the association and their raetrucks, please check this website (, here we present more information about our participants. You can find all latest news and interests at our Facebook page.
