For the second year in succession, a Revolution Race Car has won the Dutch Supercar Challenge Sunday feature race at Zandvoort known as "The Trophy of the Dunes". Richard Morris returned to defend his previous win, this time partnering with Milan De Laet, and the duo delivered when it counted most in the all important Sunday feature race, winning by the slender margin of 0.7 seconds after 60 minutes of racing!
In fact, it was an exceptional result for all drivers, with the team securing a 1st, 4th and 11th in a 30 car strong supercar field, that consisted of GT3s, GT4's and prototypes, driven by a mix of professional and amateur drivers.
The whole weekend was a positive one for the team and all drivers, with brilliant camaraderie being enjoyed by the team as a whole.
30 GT3, GT4 and prototype race cars took the grid to battle it out for the hour-long race. Revolution Debutant Jim Booth, making a switch from a Radical to Revolution impressed, securing P3 in class and 14th overall. Joaquim Penteado, racing a 500SC for the second time, secured P2 in class and 8th overall, following a massive race long battle with a Porsche and Radical. Richard Morris and Milan De Laet secured their 1st class win of the weekend coming home 3rd overall.
