For van Eerde it was also a perfect end to a season that had started so badly with DNFs in the first four races but four podiums in the last five. “Yes, thanks, that was a great way to end the year, I’m very happy. Perhaps I went a bit early at the end this time, didn’t quite work it the same way as yesterday. The group was a lot bigger today, more finishers, but being on the podium is really good,” he concluded. A nice turnaround remembering that he lost his podium place at the Sachsenring for exceeding track limits.
