“The IIC in Las Vegas is over and Team Serpent with the new Serpent S400 did well at their first major EP race. Billy Easton, who qualified 5th for the Rubber TC Modified A-final had a blistering start and made some good moves on Hara, Rheinard and Baker to be in 2nd spot right behind LeMieux by Lap 2. Unfortunately Billy hit a border and the drivers behind him crashed into him, which he was not able to recover beyond ninth spot. But, well done Billy, more to come soon! Dutch team driver Niels Koenekoop also did a great job finishing 16th in a World class field that saw Marc Rheinard win the final, in front of LeMieux with Hara 3rd. The very talented young driver from Sweden, Niklas Nillson, qualified himself third for the 19T Rubber TC final and in the final he was lying third and seemed to be catching the leading pack of Caster and Larson until he crashed in the chicane coming onto the straight which put him out on the spot. But keep it up Niklas, you will get another chance for sure.” Read More… [Source – serpent.com]
