NNO Ter Apel is looking back on five exciting years of 2.0 Hot Rod Racing. Do you remember how it all started? By visiting www.2litrehotrod.nl you can catch up with some great memories beginning with the demo in 2013 and the first year of racing in 2014. Two drivers being involved in the formula from the very first moment onwards are Dirk Albrecht #90 and Frank Nöhring #116. On our website you can read about Frank's thoughts before "The Gambler" re-entered oval racing in 2014. After their fabulous drives throughout the year, the reward was precious by winning the Silver Roof (Dirk) and the Track Championship at Ter Apel Raceway (Frank) in one of the closest points finishes so far. The National Championship and the Dutch Open title were won by Gavin Botfield #303 this year, With a 30+ car attendance at Ter Apel, the Dutch Speedweekend has become a must visit for all Hot Rod fans, On October 28th the Gala meeting was held at Aldershot. Some of the best Continental drivers crossed the channel to join racing then. This Gala event was planned to be the test run for a Challenge starting between the promoters Spedeworth and NNO. Maybe we will see a great together like in the glorious days of Kaldenkirchen (GER) when there had been a team race of English, Dutch, German and Belgium drivers. A new title is shown in the fixture list of 2019 for the first time: The Continental Championship being held at the Posterholt Speedweekend in August. Details of this event in Limburg (NL) and the qualification for the European in Lochgelly and the World in Ipswich will be announced in time.
2litrehotrod.nl would like to wish all drivers, teams, fans, staff and their families
all the best for 2019!
