Just to add a little background for that race.
Traction was not that great last year as there were almost no nitro cars driven there. That race was a clubrace and they are held on saterday evening. The stock 10.5t pro10 is run during the clubraces and the modified pro10 have there own series but ran during this clubrace as well.
Most modified drivers were there for the first time and came on friday evening or saterday afternoon. They didn't have much time to get a setup together for the race that started around 18:00 on saterday.
During practice on saterday afternoon one modified car was even overtaken on the straight by a local 10.5t stock pro10 going 95+km/u. It was funny as it shook the mod driver quite a bit.
This year the nationals will be at Heemstede again and the modified pro10 will be pressent as well. As the nationals are driven on sunday they will have ample time to get there setup together on saterday. Also the nitro 1/10 and 1/8 class are driving again so traction will hopefully get better.
The MACH changed the layout for the World Championships that are being held there this year. The straight is quite long and fast due to the high speed corner before the straight so they put a chicane there to not let it be a slug fest of whomever has the fastest straight line setup. It was asked by the drivers themselves. Also the rubber touringcar tires can't handle the modified speed so well and some tires get ripped from the wheels. The chicane is not a permenant one. It can be changed to get the long straight part again.
The nationals on the MACH will be at 19 and 20th of May and the RC LeMans series (modified pro10) will be there as well next to the stock 10.5t pro10.
