The Formula Ford EuroCup boys saved the best until last at Zandvoort, providing a thrilling and upbeat end to a tricky weekend beside the Dutch seaside. After dire weather on Saturday forced the abandonment of race one, and race two was curtailed by an accident, Sunday morning’s finale was a real fillip.

Jake Cook snatched victory on the final lap from his Jamun Racing team-mate Eric Lichtenstein after a superb race-long battle between the two Mygale EcoBoost pilots, with Lichtenstein claiming the overall EcoBoost EuroCup crown thanks to his Saturday win and two fastest laps.

In the Duratec class, Dutch veteran Michel Florie took a narrow win on Sunday over Bas Schouten, with Schouten taking the Duratec EuroCup honours for the weekend.
