Paasraces Zandvoort: Sport and Supersport division

TrackandTuner.com visited the Zandvoort Paasraces. In our first article we presented an overall impression of a full raceday on Zandvoort. In this article we take a look at the Supersport and Sport division of the Dutch Supercar Challenge. Filled with a wide variety of BMW M3’s, Seat Supercopa’s and a Lotus Evora driven by Cor Euser this pack has a lot of exciting cars.

The race started during very tricky conditions when it just started to rain. Most drivers switched to rain tires on the grid but some took the gamble and went for slicks. In the opening stage it was a matter of surviving and not losing too much time. Some cars spun like the BMW M3 GT4 but didn’t lose too much time. Others were less fortunate like the Z4M who got hit and spun out in the first and famous Tarzan corner.

During the first half hour stint the cars on rain tires had an advantage. But during the race the track started to dry up and the cars on slicks didn’t need to change tires during the pit stop. This led Cor Euser in the Lotus Evora to catch up the complete pack and finish first on the podium in the Sport division. The laps in the dry were very impressive finishing in front of the British BMW M3 GTR and M3 e90 WTCC.

In the Supersport division the 130i took full advantage of the tricky conditions and won the race overtaking the others in the final lap of a very exciting race.

Stay tuned for our next article on the SuperGT and many more from the Nurburgring.
