Now comes the fun!

With Angerville, Genk and Kristianstad filed away with three different winners in the first three OKJ races, Le Mans will be decisive for assigning the European title the 21 July weekend. Several drivers are expected to confirm their status as likely candidates, much depending on whoever, in fact, wins the European. For starters, Marcus Amand, Thomas Ten Brinke and Tuukka Taponen are the top candidates; they are followed by drivers in search of confirmations and placements especially as regards the World, another event not to be missed..

AMAND, LATE LEADER

The driver who has emerged between Genk and Kristianstad is a new Marcus Amand. The Frenchman of the VDK team has left no doubts about his potential, rising above the competition and against the odds in Genk where he was able to put together a inal that seemed to be marked for others, managing instead to win the race and carve out a role for himself as a top contender which, at least until the Belgian race, had seen him only as an outsider. With the showdown of Kristianstad, Amand bared his claws and showed grit never seen before, despite being, however, a high-ranking driver. The maturity, the determination and his hunger for victory have produced in Amand that leap in quality that, at this point, projects him among the short list of eligible candidates for the title. In the Swedish race, Amand spared no effort; in fact, he immediately tried to make the coup with a progression without rest until the inale. Amand risked repeating what he did in Genk and, had he started further up, he might even have succeeded. Six positions gained and a second place more than deserved, he took the leap into the lead with ten points in the rankings on Thomas Ten Brinke. In Le Mans, the scene of the last appointment, he is the driver to beat.
