Default First race of the MaX5 season: 1st place!

So, first race of the season for Keenonracing in the Total Mazda MaX5 Cup. This is basically the Dutch version of the British MaX5 Cup which is the SpecMiata equivalent, minus the hard top.

Me, just before the race:


Car was build over the winter months and we did some testing in Feb through April. First race was yesterday at Circuit Park Zandvoort.

Very busy free training with over 50 cars (Mada, Volvo and Alfa Romeo's). We set the 2nd best time in qualifying less than 0.4s behind Dutch GT4 driver Danny van Dongen (Corvette C6).

Due to a timing error the Hoogwerf team slipped into first place, so Danny started from P2 and I started from P3. Danny killed his clutch (see video below) and I managed to stay in P2, unable to really catch-up.

Second race, I started from P2 and Hoogwerf (with different driver) from P1. Behind me on P3 was last year's overall winner Rudy from IL Motorsport. Hoogwerf had a bad start and I was the frist to enter the first corner. Rudy (in P2) seemed to keep up for a while but I finished 1st with a 8s time gap.

Very happy with this first competition event ever and a good start of the season! I will post some on board footage from our car in the next few days.

Onboard with Danny van Dongen:

Is that a custom built cage? OR a spec cage?

Thumbs up

Long time since last update. Season almost over. Six consecutive wins. Championship is in our hands. My team manager will be driving the closing race.

Last stint, I decided to start behind the pack:
