Carlo takes second win of the weekend at Assen

12-08-07

The weekend in Assen was in favor of Van Amersfoort-driver Carlo van Dam. After two pole positions and a win in the first race of the weekend Carlo took the second overwinning on the circuit in Assen. A nearly perfect weekend has been closed with great success for Carlo. For his home audience on Dutch soil Carlo achieved 23 points from the maximin 24 points.

Carlo is extremly happy with the outcome of this weekend: This is really a superb weekend. I have been dominating the whole weekend and finished every session as the fastest driver. By winning the second race of the weekend, I succeeded by winning both races of the weekend for the first time this year.

The start of the race was very good. My teammate Recardo was fast in the beginning of the race, but after some laps I could drive away from him. Like yesterday, I had to overtake a backmarker which gave Recardo some advantage to close the gap. Im very happy with this win after the team worked so hard this weekend. The balance of the car was pretty good all the weekend. Im happy that I won both races on my home ground in front of so much fans!

Carlo will attend the RaceSalon event in Rotterdam next week on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday Carlo will give demonstration runs at Bavaria City Racing.
