Owner Drivers in 1st and 2nd on Day 4
The Owner Drivers that were the winners of the MedCup events of 2006 and 2007, Peter de Ridder and Torbjorn Tornqvist, repeated their 1st and 2nd finishing positions of the Coastal for the WL on day 4 of the Alicante Event.
For Peter de Ridder it was his 5th bullet in a row, equaling a similar string of wins in the 2006 MedCup. With a long season ahead of them it is going to be an interesting battle between these 2 teams that have proven that they know how to win. For sure the Pro Drivers in the fleet will not settle easily for another Owner Driver overall win.
At the 2007 Annual Meeting the TP52 Class Members decided to no longer require the Category 1 status for a TP52 helmsman. So in 2008, for the first time, also the TP52 World Championship (20 – 25 October, Puerto Calero, Lanzarote) will see a mix of Pro and Amateur Drivers. May the best man win!!
