In front of 98.000 spectators, Anders Krohn took a dominant win in the season finale in the Dutch & Benelux Formula Ford Championship, held at Zandvoort in the Netherlands. The winning margin was a huge 5,127 seconds. ”I am absolutely thrilled about the race. After a brief Safety-Car period, I took the lead and after that never looked back. It`s only a shame we missed out on the Championship title by one single point, as we have been the dominant force in the second half of the season.” Krohn says

Qualifying went very well indeed for Anders Krohn, setting the fastest time for both races by a margin of over 0,4 seconds. With this, Krohn has captured 9 pole positions in only 15 races. ”We are always able to do a great job with qualifyings. The car works really good and I am using the new tires to its fullest. I am really happy for the pole positions, and it comes to show the great speed we have.” ends a happy Krohn.

Race 1 and the rain had fell. It was decision time in the pits on whether to go on used or new rain tires, with Anders Krohn and his team choosing the latter of the two options. This decision would prove to be the wrong one as the track dried up more than expected. As the start went, Anders was able to take the lead and by lap 2 had a gap of some 2 seconds. On lap 3 however, the problems started and Krohn rushed down the order to eventually finish 4th with destroyed tires. ”This was just one of those races which you want to forget as soon as possible. After lap 2, the car was undriveable, so I swithced from race-winning modus, to stay-on-the-track modus. I am looking forward to tomorrows race.” said Krohn directly after the race.

Race 2 was filled with sun and a fully packed stadium. Krohn got off to yet another good start to lead until the end of lap 1 when he was slipstreamed and overtaken. A few seconds later, the Safety-Car signs came out following a huge crash in the Audi-S chicane. After the restart, Krohn quickly retook the lead and started pulling out a gap, to eventually finishing 5,127 seconds in front of the second placed driver. With this, it looked like Anders had the Benelux Championship sealed, but when two drivers went off on the penultimate lap, promoting Championship leader to 5th, Krohn lost the championship by a mere point. ”This was maybe my best victory this season! Huge crowds and sponsors at the event set the stage, and then to go out and dominate in the way we did, is nothing short of fantastic! It`s only a shame about the Championship. We have been so fast for the majority of the season, but haven`t quite had the luck of the championship-winner.” were Krohn`s immidiate thoughts after the race.

Both the Dutch and Benelux Championships are now concluded, with Anders Krohn as runner-up in both Championships. It has been a great debut year in single-seaters for Anders, capturing 9 pole positions, 6 race wins and 11 podiums in 15 races. Krohn has been the dominant force the latter part of the season, winning 5 of the seasons last 6 races. ”It has been a brilliant first year in formula-cars. With all the podiums, race wins and pole positions, I couldn`t ask for too much more except for the Championship title. But I`m keeping my eyes straight for the moment as the Formula Ford Festival is coming up soon, and I want to do my best at the worlds biggest Formula Ford race.” ends Krohn

The Formula Ford Festival will be held at Brands Hatch in Great Britain on October 20-21.
