We have a short review of what happened at Ahoy 3 weeks ago.
The first class in the afternoon session was the Super Stock class. The class was won by Hendrik Svenningsen with his Alky MF called ,,Rabbit gone´ Wild´´ from Denmark. In runner up position was the reigning European Champion of 2014, Green Gangster Deere with Rowan Zeinstra in the hot seat and in 3rd place was the Ford called ,,Rabbit gone´ Mad´´ from Denmark. One of the spectacular moments in this class was the run of Cropshop Six Shooter from Netherlands, where the engine blew the intake manifold up and damaged also the hood of the Case IH.
The Truck Pulling class was won by Team van Vlastuin Agro and the Super Sport 4.5t class was won by the Case called ,,White Shadow´´ from the Netherlands. I was in the pits the most of the time to take some pics while both classes made their runs on the track. So, I can't tell so much about those classes.
The last class of the afternoon session was the 3.5t Modified class. The class was won by Bas Liefting with Whispering Giant, in runner up position was Berrie Boer with his Double Screamin´and in 3rd place was the new Intertechno Lambada with Willem Dingerink behind the wheel. The Green Monster Team from Germany tested in this class a new home made supercharger on the front Allison engine of the Green Monster an . The first run with the new supercharger was well or for now and everything was intact after the pull. It showed some surge issues, but the team are hopeful to get those fixed in time for the outdoor season.
Unbelievable bad luck in the finals had the Ford Pro Stock tractor called ,,Snoopy" from the Netherlands. The Dutch Champion of 2014 had
a great qualifying run (the rest of the field was 7m behind him), but it blew up its turbocharger in a big bang in the finals. The exhaust wheel made it through the shielding and steel hood, so there are more things to expect in regards of turbo shielding before the outdoor season.
