Last weekend saw the second round of the Belgian 1:10 200mm National Championship run on the very nice track of Luxemburg. After his third place finish at the season opener in Rumst, Manuel Henriet was hoping for another good run and he didn’t disappoint taking his Serpent 720 to yet another podium placing.
Running the basic set-up on his Serpent in practice all was working well with just a little understeer needing sorting out. For qualifying the switch was made to red front springs instead of the pink and heavier rear oil going to 650 instead of 600. Unfortunately Manuel had a few problems on the track and didn’t get a clean run leaving him to qualify for the Semi but he made light work of the race finishing 3rd to secure a place on the grid for the Main Final.
For the Final the young Belgian decided to change the front pistons from one to two holes. Starting from seventh position the change worked well and he was up to second position after a few laps. Maintaining his position he crossed the finish line to claim his second consecutive National Championship podium.
After the race, Manuel thanked his sponsors Serpent, Orion, Mikovic Body Painting and Labema for their support and his father for his help.
