Paul Meijer Takes Victory at Benelux Formula Renault Comeback!

ZANDVOORT - He came, saw and overwon. At his return to the Benelux Formula Renault 2000 Championship series this weekend at Zandvoort, Paul immediately took pole position and a racewin in his first attempt. Paul: "It feels good to be back again!"

More than 25.000 spectators viewed how Paul drove to an outstanding pole position in the first race on Whit Monday. Because Paul choose to start in this weekend's European Championship round at Brno, the current Dutch champion wasn't able to qualify himself for the first race. Having started from the last row, Paul only needed six laps to secure pole position for Race 02. A clean start and a couple of quick openinglaps than made his comeback dream come true: with a margin of more than three seconds he won his 'first' race for Japanese driver Kanui Kobayashi. 2003 rival Junior Strous came home in third place.

Paul: "It's just fantastic to come back here with a racewin. The experience and knowledge which I gained during my European race-events lately, certainly helped me achieving this perfect result. I would like to thank my team Nikon Motorsport for their incredible job: after the races in Brno were finished, they immediately drove back home and gave me a superb car here today!"
