Serpent factory driver and reigning Belgian 1:8 National Champion Steven Cuypers took his first win of the 2007 Championship over the weekend when he placed 1st in the 3rd round held at the Rumst track.
Having TQ’d for the opening two rounds of the championship only to suffer badluck in the finals, Cuypers was pipped to the top place on the time sheets in qualifying by fellow Serpent racer and Round 1 winner Robin D’Hondt.
In the final the pairing ran just metres apart in the same order as they started until 20 minutes into the race when D’Hondt was to suffer the badluck with a rear belt failure. Â This allowed Cuypers to take the lead and cruise home for his first win of the championship.
The win comes as a boost for Cuypers ahead of the upcoming EFRA French GP where the former EC-B Champion will be looking to take his second GP win having won the Greek EFRA GP in 2005.
