Liam Everts (19) has won the Grand Prix of the Netherlands MX2 in Arnhem. De Lummenaar (3+2) took his second GP victory in MX2 after a downright thriller, which was only decided in the last lap.
Everts shot well out of the starting gate in the first series and dived right behind Längenfelder in the first corner. The German immediately maintained a solid pace and drove further away from Everts lap after lap. Halfway through the series, the Lummenaar also saw teammate and World Cup leader Adamo pass and crossed the line in third. Jago Geerts – who made his comeback barely three weeks after a heavy beating of the collarbone – settled in a good fourth place. Lucas Coenen finished sixth after an impressive race to catch up after a crash on the first lap.
Coenen wins series 2
Everts took the holeshot in the second race, but got an unchained Lucas Coenen in his wheel. The Overijse driver passed Everts in the second lap, but was already on the ground one lap later. Everts again leader, but not for long. After his fall, Coenen barely needed two laps to reclaim the lead. And this time definitively.
Everts was joined by Geerts in second place. A duel with great stakes. Everts had to hold onto his second place. If he didn’t, the GP win went to Coenen. Not an easy task, with Geerts driving better and better and also doubled drivers who got in the way. The tension was cut. Especially when Geerts passed Everts in the last lap. Liam refused to give in and fought back one last time. Successfully. He caught Geerts back on a jump. Good for his second GP victory, after his victory in Teutschenthal earlier this year.
Lucas Coenen (6+1) finished second, Simon Längenfelder (1+6) third. Jago Geerts fell just short of the podium (4+3).
