Assen to host F.Renault 2.0 NEC
One week after the Spa-Francorchamps round, Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup moves to the Dutch circuit of Assen. After having won Race 2 in Belgium, Steijn Schothorst (Manor MP Motorsport) leads the drivers’ standings. Ben Barnicoat (Fortec Motorsport) is only 13 points behind, followed by Louis Delétraz (Josef Kaufmann Racing) with only five points between them.
Martin Young, team manager of Fortec Motorsport, said – We really hope Barnicoat will score another win. It is such close racing in this championship and he is able to win. Of our four drivers in this championship Seb Morris is also in the top 10. He is very talented and should be able to move up in the championship as well.
Apart from the leader there is a second Dutch driver in the championship: Roy Geerts, last years winner of the Formula Renault 1.6 NEC Junior. Geerts now races with the AVF team and so far is 18th in the championship.
