Stefan Mesker TQ's and Takes 2nd, Championship A Lock For X Factory

The pentultimate round of the BeNeLux Championship Series was run last weekend at Liege, Belgium; X Factory’s Bruno “Elvo” Heremans and S tefan Mesker dominated the event with their X – 6²'s. Mesker TQed the Liege event with Heremans second on the grid. It's safe to say they dominated the day: the two of them won every round of qualifying and all three finals, with Elvo taking the event win.

After six of seven rounds, with five to count, Stefan Mesker leads the Championship one point ahead of Heremans. You can check out the points here. Elvo was forced to miss the first race due to a skiing injury, so he can make up some ground in the final race. Nobody else is within 5 points of Mesker, so Stefan can only lose the Championship if Elvo TQs and wins and Stefan finishes 4th or below.

If Stefan wins, he will successfully defend the crown he won last year with his X – 6 Squared. He was the Dutch Champion in 2009. X Factory cars are five of the top eight in the BeNeLux series at this point.
