Paul Meijer Scores Important EC Points at Brno!
30/05/04: Brno, 29th May 2004 -- Paul Meijer finished sixth and fourth this afternoon in the fifth round of the European Formula Renault 2000 Championship. At the Brno (Czech Republic) circuit the only remaining Dutch competitor drove two consistent races and added 26 points to his total in the championship.
The European Formula Renault 2000 Championship has been known for years as the official porch to the bigger racing series, with all races held during the LG Super Racing Weekends. In the European Formula Renault 2000 Championship, young drivers are competing with each other with identical material (chassis, engines, tyres, fuel). When a 'rookie' performs this consistent in a field of international top talents, it shows he has great potential!
Paul Meijer already had a good starting position with a sixth and third position in qualifying for the two 13-lap races. After starting well in both races, the Nikon Motorsport Team driver managed to defend his position. Meijer just missed the podium during the second race in which he was passed by Colin Fleming to finish fourth. Due to his performance at this circuit known for the many altitude differences, Paul Meijer still has a good chance to finish high in the championship after nine races!
Paul: "Of course it is great that I scored important championship points again. My excellent qualifying result helped me much to finish high, but I also need to thank my team for doing such a good job. I will try to continue this upward trend in the coming races of the European Championship. I cannot enjoy my great result for long now, because next Monday I will be at Zandvoort for the Pinksterraces!"
