DUH99 De Lippe attacked BT16 Troost. 3LA252 Boogie ended the action from a lively opening with a stiff shot to TS878 van der Berg as the red flags came out. 3 Litre A taking the win, whilst the entertainer team award went to B’tween.

The second heat pitched Seedless Squad, Dut Mie Niks, Blue Devils and Bonös together. BO721 Borré had a pop at BD587 Hogeman which in turn sent DMN305 Knoeff and SS975 Pascal crashing into the barrier. BO488 Ziggy spat SS182 Spin fencewards before it all kicked off between the Seedless Squad and Blue Devils. SS572 Yoeri followed in BD666 Duyf. BD274 Belti collected teammate BD666 Duyf, as SS420 Hoes steamed into DMN377 Mr Veerboot. SS572 Yoeri jacked BD274 Belti. SS420 Hoes ruined BD274 Belti. The red flags came out for a driver that needed attention on turn 2 but he exited all ok. The restart saw SS282 Hoes remove BO488 Ziggy, whilst BO721 Borre took the win for Bonos, and Seedless Squad grabbed the best entertainer award.

Heat 3 featured Pink Devils, RTD, Ral 6005 B and Drive Inn. RTD451 Smookey was the first to show as he attacked PD399 Welleweerd. RTD51 Licquorice set about PD295 Snippie Jnr under pressure from PD205 Jan Boldwjin. RB73 Bandit followed in PD94 Roozeboom, with RTD359 Iedema attempting to latch onto the former getting him slightly out of shape. RTD312 Mr T-Bone shed a wheel but continued battling on. A few moments past before DI945 BB Man thundered in PD38 DirkJan. RTD827 Hansma followed RD67 Marco in to PD38 DirkJan. PD94 Roozeboom was the second driver to have a wheel part with the car. DI116 Klokkie followed in RTD51 Licquorice which commenced an entertaining sequence – RTD451 Smookey jacked DI116 Klokkie. DI23 Dalton jacked RTD451 Smookey, only to cop a pair of stiff jackings from RTD827 Hansma and RTD359 Iedema. DI945 BB Man leathered RTD51 Licquorice to conclude the action. Drive Inn took the race win, with RTD being the best entertainers.

Club Niet Wies, Hornytime, Mafkezen and Simply Wild were the four teams that formed the grid for Heat 4. A big push into the first bend saw HT896 Rutger ending up facing the wrong way. SW959 Matty rattled in CNW254 Leentjes. MF581 Boldewijn delivered a wild attack on SW91 Schiphorst which set the latter up for a head on from HT130 de Jong. SW335 ErikJan homed in for a shot to HT130 de Jong. SW91 Schiphorst caught MF508 Douma with a strange hit on oppo which absolutely splintered the latter’s Oldsmobile. SW202 Hekman homed in for a jacking to MF508 Douma as the latter attempted to limp to safety; CNW433 Menno also jacking the Mafkezen member’s Yank as he looked for a gap through. SW959 Matty weighed in on CNW433 Menno. SW91 Schiphorst delivered a solid head on to MF545 Trimpetter which led to the red flags being brought out and a subsequent early climax to proceedings – Hornytime being deemed the winners whilst Simply Wild understandably took the entertainer award.

Heat 5 compiled three teams: Team Onbenul, Black & Yellow and Staphorst – the latter team featuring ASE Points Champion 999 Mokko. ST995 Koster was the first to show as he buried BY636 Etienne. BY636 Etienne recovered to blast ON126 Roosien, who had tangled with teammate ON92 Stuivenberg. ON39 Kremer jacked BY636 Etienne which began an awesome passage of wrecking between Onbenul and the Black & Yellow factions. BY634 Simon destroyed ON39 Kremer with an airtime shot only to cop a stiff shot himself from ON92 Stuivenberg. BY635 Thymen steamed into blitz ON92 Stuivenberg. ON21 Olaf blasted BY635 Thymen. BY639 Bruggeman weighed in on ON416 Keur. The red and chequered was waved after only around 5 laps being completed putting an end to the race of the day so far. Staphorst were given the win, which was understanding considering the lack of involvement in the wrecking train; Black & Yellow took the entertainer award.

Shocking Blue made their Emmen Teamrace debuts in Heat 6, and they were joined out on track by Team Voodoo, Team Twente and Gas Hoal’n. SB730 Geerdink was the first to show as he removed TT401 Batman from contention. TT264 Vaanholt spun aside VO323 Kimmel, allowing SB111 Keezeman to blast the Voodoo man. A jacking train commenced at the end of the home straight after TT52 Comino ran SB225 Baco through VO296 Stoffel’s MK1 Granada which was sat broadside across the straight. VO961 Pepino weighed in on the back of TT52 Comino, with GH627 Haye going in to complete the train. VO589 Timo buried himself into the back of GH627 Haye to continue the action, ultimately leaving himself prone to a shot from SB203 Grefte. TT456 Edens delivered a solid jacking to SB203 Grefte seeing the former get a bit of airtime as he went in. Shocking Blue revenge was swift as SB217 Knoef weighed in on TT456 Edens. TT369 Ter Keurs weighed in on SB217 Knoef which ended the action for a few laps until TT401 Batman delivered a solid hit to VO323 Kimmel. GH75 Talent homed in on TT401 Batman. Gas Hoal’n took the race win whilst Shocking Blue were deemed the most entertaining team in what marked their first true banger event.

Race 7 was next on the agenda and pitted Team United, Party Racers, The Maniacs and Sleurnis together. MN752 Klomp made a beeline for PR260 Kappe spinning him aside. SL338 Hekman jacked PR982 Jordy. SL702 Seinen homed in for a stiff hit to PR982 Jordy to add further punishment to the latter who viewed he’d taken enough hits so called for the reds bringing the race to a halt. PR982 Jordy exited his car all ok. The restart saw SL708 Borger attack MN267 Jarno whilst SL54 Logterman was sent spinning by the pack. SL706 Seinen buried UN194 the Spie and PR260 Kappe in one foul sweep down on turns 3 and 4. MN752 Klomp buried SL702 Seinen into the growing carnage on the entrance of the back straight – the latter coming under further abuse as he was treated to a head on by one of the Party Racers. This allowed UN194 the Spie to blast the aforementioned Party Racers driver as elsewhere, MN752 Klomp continued his charge to turn SL706 Seinen fencewards. UN890 Pavarotti thundered in MN754 Poolman. MN527 Klomp set about UN207 McFly to conclude the action. The Maniacs took the race victory and Sleurnis emerged as the entertainers.

Heat 8 was the final race within the split format and looked the most exciting on paper with continental heavyweights Boogiemen and Ral 6005 A taking on UK’s 3 Litre; the latter team fielding their ‘B’ faction. 3LB146 Wiggy attacked BM884 Emaus from the off, eventually spinning him aside. BM818 Dylan bounced 3LB240 Setters off of the armco. RA245 Appel followed in 3LB625 Gucci. RA52 Van Heel stuffed in 3LB122 Cooper Jnr. BM818 Dylan picked 3LB275 Rusty up through the passenger doors running him in and collecting the stricken 3LB122 Cooper Jnr car. This allowed 3LB720 Jimbo to avenge the 3 Litre team weighing in on BM818 Dylan. RA52 Van Heel and BM884 Emaus combined to set about 3LB720 Jimbo. 3LB197 Dodge squared BM884 Emaus up for a head on as he backed out of the train just as the reds came out to allow 3LB275 Rusty to exit his car safely. The restart saw 3LB241 Cracknell attack RA365 Meerschaut. BM926 Kruders rattled in 3LB146 Wiggy. 3LB146 Wiggy then spun on turn 3 allowing BM227 Nijhuis to blast him on the nose. BM15 Touissant weighed in on 3LB146 Wiggy. 3LB241 Cracknell followed in BM885 Katier leaving him open to a shot from RA24 Devastator. 3LB241 Cracknell and RA24 Devastator remained latched together with the latter running the 3 Litre man into BM15 Touissant. Ral 6005 A took the race win whilst Boogiemen swept the entertainer award.

BO488 Ziggy fired into 3LA239 Nemesis. A pile up formed on the entrance of the home straight which created a track blockage. BT107 Steven drove through the rear wheel of SS573 Kleen. 3LA 209 Tombo jacked BO488 Ziggy. SS574 Heetebrijj jacked 3LA209 Tombo. BO199 Matti delivered a meaty head on to BT16 Troost, whilst 3LA252 Boogie delivered a portion to SS574 Heetebrijj. SS420 Hoes went in on 3LA252 Boogie to continue the 3 Litre/Seedless Squad run of hits. SS572 Spin went in on the back of 3LA360 Jackstar as the red flags were brought out. The restart saw 3LA360 Jackstar deliver a head on to SS282 Hoes. 3LA247 Bro jacked the recovering BT362 Boer. 3LA239 Nemesis jacked BT16 Troost, as 3LA247 Bro came under fire from BT408 Tosti. 3LA239 Nemesis treated the spun BT79 Hoeve to a head on as 3LA247 Bro copped another jacking from BT408 Tosti. The B’tween onslaught with BT107 Steven laying into 3LA360 Jackstar which saw the latter barrel roll and bring an end to the race in which it was 3 Litre A who took the victory and B’tween being awarded for their efforts as race entertainers.

¼ Final C saw the return of Shocking Blue alongside Gas Hoal’n and Black & Yellow among others. GH145 van Groot n Bernd stuffed in ST41 de Witte, continuing his momentum to blast the spun, leaving the former a sitting duck for a blistering jacking from SB111 Weegerink. At the other end, SB730 Geerdink found himself sat lame against the armco with BY635 Thymen happily obliging to deliver a huge jacking bringing the race to a stoppage. The restart saw ST999 Mokko bury BY636 Etienne into the parked cars on turns 3 and 4. GH627 Haye ran BY636 Etienne through SB100 Rupert which in turn rolled another Shocking Blue member bringing the reds out again. The restart was short lived as a bit of chaos along the back straight led to GH582 Marissink giving a big shot to ST40 de Witte, rolling the latter resulting in bringing the race to an early finish. Gas Hoal’n to the race win and Black & Yellow took another entertainers award.
