One week after a serious crash during the Championkart race in Ala (Italy), Michael Cool won the 3rd round of the Belgian Championship in Francorchamps.
Should he race, yes or no ? After a medical check-up in a hospital in Belgium, the doctors noticed that Michael had a broken rib and many contusions from his crash in Italy.
He decided to start at Francorchamps and took the pole !
The first heat he lead from start to finish.
The second heat was in wet conditions what Michael actually like the most. But now, with a broken rib, he could,'t use his body as he used to do and it was nearly impossible to take the curbs. He finished second which was enough to become the overall-winner of the day.
For his teammate Tiffany Chittenden was the Belgian race unsuccesfull: the first time ever on the Francorchamps track and the first time this year with a senior Rotax Max without front brakes explaines her 14 possition in time practice.
The first heat she had a few tough battles and she developed well as the race went on.
In the second heat in wet conditions, she had to come in early with a flat rear tire.
Tiff was a little bit disapointed but this changed quickly after Michael won the race and the SFP-Parolin crew celebrated the victory on their own way.
