Race report and magazine Dijon

Qualifying: always the sun

The low sun caught out a few people in Friday’s SuperSixties qualifying session. Three stranded cars caused a red flag. Alex Korle bumped his Lotus Elan’s nose and Frank Weidema’s Mini Marcos lost a wheel, but it all looked fixable. Fastest of everyone was Kennet Persson in the Ford GT40. The Campagne-Izaks Corvette GS was another visitor to the gravel bed, causing the session to be red flagged with a few minutes still to go, yet they still posted second fastest time. First of the Lotus Elans was Bob Stevens, just ahead of the Van Gils family, Niek in the TVR Griffith 0,2 of a second faster than Sander in the Elan. Sixth fastest was Philippe Vermast in another Elan. Then it was Oliver Douglas, partnered by Simon Ham in the Cobra Daytona. The Germain/Darley E-type, Mark Dols in his Marcos and Armand Adriaans in the AC Cobra rounded out the top-10. Fastest of the touring cars were Jaap van der Ende and Martin Bijleveld in the Ford Falcon, just ahead of the Hees father and son team in another Falcon. Another father and son team, René and Thijmen de Vries were third fastest of the touring cars. In CT08, Cortina country, Bert Du Toy van Hees just pipped Ralf Wagner. In GTS11, Frank Veenstra and Dennis Bron were fastest of the 5 MGB’s, but Erwin van Lieshout in his Porsche 911 was faster still. With 53 cars on the grid, the 300 km race promised a lot of fun.

Race 1: Two hours of excitement

How exciting can a 300 kilometre race be? It was Lotus Elans versus Ford GT40 from start to finish. Bob Stevens, Philippe Vermast, Sander and Niek van Gils and Charlie and Ross Hyett all took the fight to Kennet Persson in his Ford GT40. The van Gils Elan was eliminated in an altercation with the GT40, while Bob Stevens dropped back to fourth when his rear tires gave up. The Hyetts and Vermast kept the pressure on and were only a few seconds behind Persson after two hours of hard racing. However, after the race the srcutineers took issue with the ignition of these cars and they were duly disqualified, so Bob Stevens was promoted to second. Michiel Campagne and Jasper Izaks were unlucky and finished 4th in the GTP Corvette, behind GTS12 winner Roelant de Waard in his Shelby GT350. Luc de Cock (Lotus Elan), Rappange father and son (Porsche 904), Armand Adriaans (AC Cobra), Jos Stevens and Marc Morawietz (Lotus Elans) and Mark Dols (Marcos) rounded out the top-10. Erwin van Lieshout took the GTS11 spoils in his Porsche 911, from Egbert Kolvoort and Waterhouse/Tonks in their MGB’s. Alexander Schlüchter drove an impressive race in his 1,2 litre Lotus Elite and Frank Weidema bounced back from an unlucky practice day by running like clockwork in his Mini Marcos. Hemmo Vriend won the touring car class in his Ford Falcon, from Ralf Wagner in his Lotus Cortina. Third went to Bijleveld and Van der Ende in their ducttape special Falcon, after the De Vries Mini and Hees Falcon retired late in the race.

Race 2: Short but sweet

Sunday’s SuperSixties race at Dijon was short but sweet. Kennet Persson led from start to finish in the Ford GT40. Michiel Campagne could not keep up in the Corvette GS, instead he was being harried by Bob Stevens in the Lotus Elan. In fourth was Roelant de Waard, with Jop Rappange in the Porsche 904-6 reeling him in. Not far behind, Armand Adriaans in his AC Cobra had the Lotus Elans of Luc de Cock and Jos Stevens in his mirrors. It looked like we were set for a thrilling finale. Alas, it was not to be. Frans van Maarschalkerwaart (Shelby GT350) was at the head of a train with Björn Hees (Ford Falcon), Nigel Winchester (AC Cobra) and Ralf Wagner (Lotus Cortina). Going into turn 5 the Falcon split an oil line and spun on its own oil, collecting the Cobra on the way. Both drivers were OK and the bent cars quickly removed, while the field was circulating behind the Safety Car. The oil from the big V8 was another story though. It was all over the track and there was no other option than to red flag the race. So the top-8 remained as before. The ever improving Marc Morawietz took 9th in his Lotus Elan, while Christoph Germain finished 10th in his E-type. In GTS11, Erwin van Lieshout was first across the line in his Porsche 911. Jaap van der Ende had an eventful race. First he had a huge spin, then the Ford Falcon’s bonnet flew off. He still won the touring car division, from Ralf Wagner in his CT08 class winning Lotus Cortina and Hemmo Vriend in another CT10 Falcon.

Race report from Anderstorp, Sweden

Learning the track
NKHTGT endeavours to visit a new track every year, and for 2022 we chose Anderstorp, the former Grand Prix circuit in Sweden. We were made very welcome by the local club and officials and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Having been treated to a pair of dry practice sessions, it was all change in qualifying as a wet track greeted the NKHTGT competitors. Everybody was well behaved so there were no interruptions, although a certain orange V8 did end up in the gravel trap. Late entry Hans Beckert was at the top of the timing screen in his Mini Cooper, until Kennet Persson just managed to pip his time with some amazing car control in the GT40. Dante Rappange took 3rd in another Mini. Bas Jansen was 4th and fastest of the V8 touring cars in his Mustang. Mark Dols qualified his Marcos 5th just ahead of Jan Magnussen in a Turner-Ford. René de Vries (Cooper S), Martin Bijleveld (Ford Falcon), Roelant de Waard (Shelby GT350) and Otto Rheedz-Thott (Ford GT40) rounded out the top-10 of the 33 car field. Unluckiest man of the weekend was Marcel van Laarhoven, who suffered a terminal engine problem in his Shelby Mustang GT350 and had to sit out the rest of the weekend.

Race 1: Max Campagne
Michiel Campagne was the winner of the first ever NKHTGT race at Anderstorp. He made a Max-like start from 16th to power his Corvette Grand Sport into the top-6 within a lap. Meanwhile Kennet Persson took the lead in his GT40 from Hans Beckert in the Mini, with Martin Bijleveld (Ford Falcon) and Dante Rappange (Mini Cooper) in close contention. The track was very slippery but dry enough for the big V8’s to pull away a little bit. Campagne had just managed to pass Persson for the lead when the race was neutralized to remove Bert Mets’ Mini and Lars Bondesson’s Elan from dangerous positions. With the field bunched up behind the safety car there was time for a one lap sprint to the flag. Bijleveld managed to outbrake Persson at the end of the long straight and as they entered the next corner side by side the GT40 lost traction and swerved onto the grass. Michiel Campagne pulled ahead and won the race with Bijleveld just 0.9 of a second behind. Hans Beckert on his Mini performed a great overtake on Bas Jansen (Ford Mustang) to take the last podium place. Roelant de Waard drove a very fast last lap to take fifth overall and first in GTS12 to preserve his championship lead. Dante Rappange came home sixth while Persson salvaged 7th. Bob Stevens was first home in GTS10 in his Lotus Elan while Erwin van Lieshout won GTS11 in the Porsche 911. Magnus Lillerskog was the CT08 winner in his Lotus Cortina.

Race 2: Uncatchable de Waard
Roelant de Waard drove his Shelby Mustang to a dominant win in Sunday’s NKHTGT race at Anderstorp. Taking the lead from the start, he set a blistering pace and pulled away while his pursuers were fighting among themselves. Martin Bijleveld outgunned the GTP’s with a cheeky start in his Ford Falcon, then overdid it on the exit of Mattssons and skidded on the grass. Michiel Campagne in the Corvette GS and Kennet Persson in the GT40 rocketed down the straights, but were being harassed in the twisty sections by Hans Beckert and Dante Rappange in their nimble Mini’s. Bas Jansen joined in the fun, displaying some great car control in his Ford Mustang. Next it was Kaj Dahlbacka in the white Corvette Grand Sport who moved up to third, with Bijleveld also moving back in contention, so there were 7 drivers all battling for the podium! As the track dried, the powerful GTP’s were able to stretch their legs and move clear of the touring cars. De Waard was uncatchable though, so Persson finished second, Campagne was classified third and Dahlbacka fourth. Jansen was the first touring car driver home in fifth, ahead of Beckert. Meanwhile Dante Rappange had found a brilliant way of keeping Bijleveld at bay, getting beside the big Falcon on the inside of the Karrusellen, then staying put on the outside line through Depåkurven, so Martin could not put his foot down. Great stuff! Bob Stevens won GTS10 in his Lotus Elan, while Brian Lambert was the winner in GTS11 in his MGB, after Erwin van Lieshout had trouble getting his Porsche 911 started on the pre-grid. Magnus Lillerskog stalled his Lotus Cortina on the actual startgrid, but still managed to reel in Gerrit Jan van Leenen’s similar car to win the CT08 class.

On the way to Anderstorp

Shortly we will be experiencing the Swedish way of life (and racing…). To start with: there has been an unfortunate misunderstanding about a third race on Sunday afternoon and you’ll already guess: there is no third race. So we have two 20 minute test sessions on Friday, a 20 minute qualifying session on Saturday, a race on Saturday afternoon and a race on Sunday morning, both 27 minutes + 1 lap.

The Swedish way of racing extends to the timetable.  The times for Friday are indicative and no times are indicated for Saturday and Sunday. The program starts at 9:00 AM and continues after lunch at 1:15 PM (Saturday) and 1:35 PM (Sunday). After each heat, the next heat is started as soon as possible. The time schedule and provisional entry list can be found on the drivers info page: https://www.nkhtgt.nl/en/competitors-information/.

For all participants in the different classes, see https://www.eventsupport.se/entre/public/registrations.php?race=3077.

See you in Anderstorp!

Race report Jack’s Racing Day Assen

With no GTP’s on the entry list, Assen provided a level playing field for the NKHTGT racers. In a busy qualifying session, that was interrupted by a long red flag period, it was Lotus Elans to the fore. Luc de Cock was just 0,1 of a second quicker than Jos Stevens. Roelant de Waard was not far behind in his GTS12 Shelby Mustang. Bob Stevens could not match these laptimes due to coolant leaking on to his rear tires. Multiple Assen winner Andy Newall could not make it to Assen this weekend, which meant Rhea Sautter was driving both races. She qualified fastest of the E-types and second in GTS12. In the touring cars Bart-Jan Deenik was fastest of the Falcons by a second, from Cees Lubbers, Jaap van der Ende and Henk van Gammeren who were all within 1/10th.


Race 1: First corner drama

Many races are won or lost in the first corner, and that is what happened in Sauturday’s NKHTGT race at Assen. Roelant de Waard made a demon start from the second row to take the lead in the first corner. Jos Stevens’ Lotus Elan was short on grip. He tried to hang on but eventually the car swapped ends and he had to let the whole field pass before he could rejoin. Luc de Cock thus found himself in second, but had to contend with a battling group of MG/Triumphs that he wisely offered some space. De Waard duly led from start to finish in his Shelby GT350, with De Cock in his Lotus Elan in second but unable to strike. Rhea Sautter took a well deserved third place overall in her Jaguar E-type. Jos Stevens sliced through the field and recovered to fourth. Bart-Jan Deenik was unbeatable in CT10, his Ford Falcon even surviving a short flight when he had to avoid an errant TVR in the GT chicane. The battle for second TC was intense, with Henk van Gammeren being chased by Cees Lubbers and Jaap van der Ende, all in Falcons. Van Gammeren got away as Lubbers succesfully fought of Van der Ende, although the pair of them was nearly passed by Roel Korsten in his Mustang. In GTS11, there was heartbreak for championship leader Theo van Gammeren as his Porsche 911’s ignition broke, which gave the win to Brian Lambert in the MGB.

Race 2: Shelby beats Elans

On Sunday Roelant de Waard scored win no. 2 in his Shelby Mustang GT350. He took the lead at the start, with a determined Luc de Cock in his Lotus Elan in pursuit. Bart-Jan Deenik made a good start and immediately had a healthy lead over the other touring cars, until a halfshaft broke, leaving the car stranded in the complex after the first corner. The safety car was deployed while the stricken Falcon was towed away. With the green flags waved, De Cock again found himself in the middle of the fastest of the MG/Triumph guest drivers on their stickier tires. They kept De Waard on his toes as well, being able to brake later and turn in sharper. Meanwhile Jos Stevens (Lotus Elan) had managed to pass Rhea Sautter (Jaguar E-type) and was closing on De Cock. The experienced Belgian driver decided to speed up and try and get some MG’s between him and the orange Lotus. The plan did not quite work out, when he tried a different line he ran wide at the very fast Ramshoek corner. This handed second place to Stevens. De Cock finished third and Sautter fourth. The demise of Deenik made for a great scrap in CT10. Initially Cees Lubbers had been ahead of Martin Bijleveld and Henk van Gammeren, all in Ford Falcons. After a couple of laps Bijleveld managed to pass Lubbers, but it was Roel Korsten who was truly on the move. Having started on the back row he passed all and sundry and finally finished 5th overall and a resounding first in CT10 in his Ford Mustang. Bert Mets drove impressively in his Cooper S, managing to stay ahead of Lars Bondesson (Lotus Elan) and Brian Lambert. Mets (CT08) and Lambert (GTS11) both took their second class win of the weekend. The same went for Magnus Lillerskog in his CT08 Lotus Cortina, who could be seen chasing Jeroen Hoep (E-type) and Mark Schmidt (Healey 3000).

Championship positions: all change

It is all change in the rankings, as Theo and Thijs van Gammeren scored zero points when they had to retire their trusty Porsche 911. Bob Stevens also remained pointless, his not-so-trusty Lotus Elan letting him down…again. Bart-Jan Deenik scored one class win, always good for a nice points haul in the busy CT10 class, but then recorded a non-finish on Sunday. And so it is Roelant de Waard whose two resounding wins have propelled him to the top of the table with a healthy 137 points. Jos Stevens has moved up to second, Deenik is in third and the Van Gammeren family occupies the next two places in the top-5. Mind you, with five races to go (yes, 3 at Anderstorp!) there are still over a 100 points on offer, so nothing is settled.

Race report Pinksterraces Zandvoort

A sunny Zandvoort welcomed the NKHTGT competitors for the traditional “Pinksterraces”. Kennet Persson posted a 2:01.5 lap in his Ford GT40 to take pole. Bob Stevens snatched second at the last moment in his Lotus Elan. Roelant de Waard qualified 3rd in his Shelby Mustang with Michiel Campagne 4th in his Corvette Grand Sport. The third row featured Jos Stevens (Lotus Elan) and Michiel van Duijvendijk (TVR Griffith). We were very happy to welcome yet more newcomers to the NKHTGT family: Ron Sanen with a Lotus Elan, Per Roxlin with an MG Midget, Robert Ingram with a Lotus Elite and a well known Ford Falcon piloted by Henk and Bjorn Hees.


Race 1: meatball and oil

The racing part was somewhat shorter than anticipated, but Saturday afternoon’s race was entertaining nevertheless. Persson took the lead from Michiel Campagne with Bob Stevens in third. Things were hotting up when Frank Veenstra’s MGB deposited its oil on the racing line. It took a long safety car period to powder the track. Meanwhile Campagne reported in the pits after he was shown the meatball for excessive noise. With 15 minutes to go racing resumed. Bob Stevens managed to take the lead with a demon outbraking move, but Persson used the GT40’s power to repass on the straight and take the win. Roelant de Waard came 3rd and 1st in GTS12 in his Shelby Mustang. Martin Bijleveld won the touring car class in his Ford Falcon from the similarly mounted Bart-Jan Deenik and Henk van Gammeren. Bert Mets was on fire and won CT07 in his Mini Cooper, while Frank Wagner continued his Hockenheim form and again came first in CT08 in the Lotus Cortina. Theo van Gammeren won GTS11 in his Porsche 911. The most fun was had by Lars Bondesson (Lotus Elan), Jeroen Hoep (Jaguar E-type), Robert Ingram (Lotus Elite), Henk Hees (Ford Falcon) and Magnus Lillerskog (Lotus Cortina) who had a very entertaining scrap for 21st.

Race 2: Persson’s double

Kennet Persson made it two out of two on Sunday. Bob Stevens kept him honest and even led the race for several laps after Kennet missed a gear when his arm restraint tangled with the gearstick. With normal service resumed the Lotus Elan could not match the sheer speed of the GT40. Jos Stevens (Lotus Elan) took the third podium spot after successfully dealing with Michiel van Duijvendijk (TVR Griffith) and Roelant de Waard, whose Shelby Mustang lost some speed due to a misfire. Martin Bijleveld led the touring cars throughout but threw away the win after an outbraking attempt that was too ambitious. CT10 honours thus went to Bart-Jan Deenik, from Henk van Gammeren both in Ford Falcons. Thijmen de Vries (Cooper S) was the third touring car home and first in CT07 after a storming race. René Wagner was king of CT08 once again in his Lotus Cortina. GTS11 spoils went to Thijs van Gammeren in the Porsche, ahead of MGB-mounted Brian Lambert and Niek van Gils.

After four races, Bob Stevens leads the championship by six points over Bart-Jan Deenik. Anything is still possible as there are still 8 races to go. The next race on the NKHTGT programme is our traditional visit to the Spa-Francorchamps circuit for the Spa Summer Classic. Spa is a long circuit, which means that we can accommodate no less than 65 cars. We expect a record turnout and will do our utmost to try and reach the magic number of 65! Which is why we invite everyone with an FIA app. K compliant pre-’66 TC, GT or GTS (with valid HTP) for a weekend full of fun on one of the world’s best race tracks. The entry fee is only € 845 and there are two races of 30 minutes each, so two drivers can share a car. After Spa we will continue with races in Assen (5-7 August), Anderstorp (26-28 August) and finally Dijon (7-9 October). At this moment there are still limited places available for all these races. Mail to Egbert at race@nkhtgt.nl if you want to join us, or call him at +316 262 16464.

NKHTGT ends the season on a high

Over 30 drivers enjoyed the sunshine and the beautiful Dijon-Prenois track as the NKHTGT powered by Nolte Küchen ended the 2021 season in the French Bourgogne region. We were especially pleased to welcome a large Swedish delegation who had made the long trek South.

Local hero José Beltramelli took the spoils in the first race. With his TVR Griffith he passed Michiel Campagne on lap 4 and led the Corvette Grand Sport for 22 laps to win the 40 minute race by just 3,4 seconds. Niek van Gils (TVR Griffith) claimed the final podium spot  Fourth overall and winner of the touring car class after an impressive sideways yet quick drive was Philippe Vermast in the first of the Falcons.

Next up was the first non-V8 home, Mark Dols in the Volvo-powered Marcos. Bob Stevens was the winner in GTS10 ahead of his father Jos and Mats Ek from Sweden, all in Lotus Elans. Erwin van Lieshout (Porsche 911) was first past the post in GTS11, with Dennis Bron (MGA twin cam second), while Rob Rappange won the Mini class from René de Vries, both Cooper S mounted.

Swedish former F3 racer Kennet Persson retired his Ford GT40 on the first lap of race 1, but bounced back on Sunday. Starting from the back he passed the entire field including second placed man Michiel Campagne. Niek van Gils in the TVR Griffith initially held third but a determined drive by Mark Dols, aftwer an egine change on his  Marcos, was rewarded with the final podium spot. Bob Stevens in his GTS10 Lotus Elan stole fifth from touring car winner Philippe Vermast in the Ford Falcon on the final lap. GTS11 was a Porsche affair, Erwin van Lieshout taking another win with Theo van Gammeren in second. Tijmen de Vries won the Cooper S class ahead of Bert Mets and Magnus Lillerskog took the CT08 trophy for Sweden in his Lotus Cortina.

Motor racing is dangerous

Roland Zoomers is recovering well from his mishap at Zolder. He sent us a personal letter, which we reproduce here. It is in Dutch of course.

Back to Spa for the Summer Classic

After a year’s enforced break, the drivers of the NK HTGT powered by Nolte Küchen were delighted to be back at Spa-Francorchamps. On this power circuit, Bob Stevens surprisingly set the fastest time in qualifying with his little Lotus Elan. Unfortunately, he would not start the race, as he rolled at the Raidillon moments later, luckily without injury to the driver. Michiel Campagne was second fastest in the Corvette Grand Sport, followed by Armand Adriaans (Ford GT40), Kaj Dahlbacka (Corvette GS) and Roelant de Waard (Shelby Mustang).

At the start, the pair of Corvettes Grand Sport took off, but pursuer Dahlbacka had to drop out when he lost a wheel. Campagne then drove to an unchallenged win, with Armand Adriaans in the great sounding Ford GT40 in second. Third on the podium was Roelant de Waard who dominated the busy GTS12 class in his Shelby Mustang. There was a mighty scrap for second in the GTs, between Jasper Izaks, Hans Hugenholtz and Marcel van Laarhoven in Shelby Mustangs and the Jaguar E-type armada consisting of Rhea Sautter, Eric Douart and Carlo Hamilton. After the mandatory pit stops in this one-hour race, the cards were shuffled and second in GTS12 was for Frenchman Douart, ahead of the duo Frans van Maarschalkerwaart/Jasper Izaks. Jos Stevens (Lotus Elan) had moved up to fifth place overall and was first in GTS10. Theo and Thijs van Gammeren won GTS11 in the Porsche 911, ahead of Egbert Kolvoort on MGB. In the touring car classes things got very exciting. Martin Bijleveld (Ford Falcon) built up a substantial lead, but after the pitstops his co-pilot Jaap van der Ende could not consolidate this. Cees Lubbers and Duncan Huisman (Ford Falcon) now appeared to have the upper hand, until a Drive Through for ignoring track limits threw a spanner in the works. Bas Jansen then? Alas, an hour was too long for his Ford Mustang. And so it was Hemmo Vriend who had kept his nose clean to take the win in his Ford Falcon. CT08 went to Sandro Hubar (Alfa Romeo GTA), after the Lotus Cortina brigade broke down. In the Mini class, the win went to father and son duo René and Thijmen de Vries.

Next race: Zolder 17-18 July.


  1. Michiel Campagne (Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport) 20 laps
  2. Armand Adriaans (Ford GT40) +28.369
