ZANDVOOT, Holland – Eric Lichtenstein was crowned Formula Ford EuroCup king following three incident-packed races at Zandvoort at the weekend.
Dire weather battered the seaside circuit on Saturday, forcing the abandonment of race one. Race two was then curtailed by an accident. Fortunately, Sunday morning’s finale was a real fillip.
Jake Cook snatched victory on the final lap from his Jamun Racing team-mate Eric Lichtenstein after a superb race-long battle between the two Mygale EcoBoost pilots, with Lichtenstein claiming the overall EcoBoost EuroCup crown thanks to his Saturday win and two fastest laps.
In the Duratec class, Dutch veteran Michel Florie took a narrow win today over Bas Schouten, with Schouten taking the Duratec EuroCup honours for the weekend.
