Aken: Chardon en Nederlands vierspanteam op goudkoers

The fully packed Driving Stadium in Aachen hosted the second phase of the FEI European Driving Championships for Four-in-Hand this afternoon. Whilst the temperatures rose during the day, the tension rose equally amongst the drivers and their teams during this exciting cones competition.

Double World Champion Felix Marie Brasseur from Belgium was the first of the 36 competitors to drive a double clear round, much to the pleasure of the enthusiastic spectators and Brasseur’s team members. The next driver on the starting list József Dobrovitz (HUN) equalled this amazing performance and also passed the finish line without any penalties behind his name. His time however was a little slower than Brasseur’s, which put the most successful Belgian driver in the lead of this phase. IJsbrand Chardon (NED) only had 0,42 time penalties and finished third.
