I was sourprised to see Clairet going into the gravel when he seemed to have the control of the car to get in a safer position!

Poor showcase by Homola and Halder

Briche back to the win with a superior Peugeot, good race by Lloyd. Not surprised by Jelmini, he's a really good driver and he knows well the italian circuit. He's former champion in the Clio Cup Italy

Disappointed for Bennani, tha maroccan was really unlucky today

Not sure what Halder was thinking... seemed to drive straight into Homola twice rather than straightline the chicane.

Peugeots seemingly very quick after being very slow so far this season.

Yes, he took a strange line before entering the chicane. Maybe after the first contact he has damaged the steering or something else...

A fantastic win today for Mikel Azcona! Damp conditions in Race 1 at Spa, the spaniard made the right tyre choice with slicks in front and wet in the rear... but he drove an excellent race making overtakes while sliding with the car in fast corners; just brillant drive!!

A very competitive Coronel finished second, he couldn't resist to the speed of Azcona. A good 3rd place for Mike Halder, the championship leader. Bennani 6th, Lloyd 8th.

And welcome back to Nicola Baldan! Nice to see him in action in TCR Europe and a good score position, 9th after overtaking Oriola

In race 2 another win for Azcona.
Great racing (like often at Spa).
Let's not talk about track limits...

Azcona again superb in race two! Another win another good tyre gamble. And Coronel too, good 2nd place again.

French John Filippi get a third place that enable him to win the Benelux Trophy. Good for Filippi to have shown good competitiveness throughout the Championship with the Target Hyundai. Actually he is the best Hyundai driver.

Lloyd losed more points with a contact and an hard crash with the argentinian Sapag. What a shame for Dan!

Now surprise surprise the newcomer Mike Halder Is leading the Championship with 242 points from Bennani 216, Filippi 207, Baert 201 and Lloyd 194.

Really enjoyed the races in Spa, great action and good overtakes!

Only one round left now!

Yes, It only includes some rounds of the TCR Europe. I think It was included to attract some belgium drivers that competed in the old Benelux series...

Interesting. I checked their site, and their profiles on Facebook and Instagram, there is no info if that championship is still alive.

Very strange, they issued the calendar in the early 2020... but as you said it seems it is disappeared. And also Filippi from his social didn't report any win about this trophy. Maybe it's been canned after the covid strikes and then cancelled... don't know exactly

So why are drivers being awarded the trophy then?

Based on the standings I was thinking It was awarded to Filippi (best French, Belgian, Dutch... driver) but clearly no one wrote about this Trophy win, even the Facebook Page of Hyundai Customer Racing!

https://www.autosport.be/news/vijf-m...ophy-2020.html

Back then, It seems It was confirmed

Excellent racing at Spa. Good cars + good circuit = good racing.

I can't believe how badly Lloyd has choked. He was leading by miles and is now overa race's worth of points behind.

He nearly lost the UK championship the same way.

Making silly mistakes instead of banking points, being over aggressive and attracting penalties.
