Farkas cuts the gap to 14 points with another stunner on Sunday

14 Aug 2022

This time it was Moor following him home, but it was another impressive margin for the number 28 as the charge continues

 

After Most Race 2 and then Assen Race 1, Kevin Farkas (Agria Racing Team) made it a triple threat as he once again laid down the gauntlet on Sunday in the Netherlands. The Hungarian was over eight seconds clear by the flag, with points leader Rossi Moor (FAIRIUM Next Generation Riders) coming home second but seeing his advantage cut to just 14 points. After some tougher times on home turf thus far in the NTC, Loris Veneman (TeamNL Open Line) took third and stood on the podium at the Cathedral.

As is becoming his calling card, Farkas went full gas from the off to immediately take the lead and start building that further. This time the number 28 had no company to speak of almost from the off, putting the hammer down as his mission to defeat Moor for the 2022 Cup continued in style.

Behind, it was another huge group battle and, as ever in the NTC, it went to the wire. Herrlich started the final lap in second but it was chopping and changing to the flag - and both he and Lenoxx Phommara (Team Phommara) were victim to a late attack from Moor. The number 92 got past Dustin Schneider (Goblin Racing) to set up a grandstand finish and make it past both riders ahead of him for second, through the Geert Timmer chicane with just enough in hand.

Veneman stayed ahead for third, with Phommara off the podium by just 0.034. Schneider beat compatriot Herrlich just behind, with Martin Vincze (Chrobak Motorsport Egyesület) within another 0.019.

Jurrien van Crugten (BB64 Academy) came away with P8 in Race 2, just ahead of Maxime Schmid (Team Schmid) in ninth. Tibor Varga (Forty Racing) beat Julius Coenen (Helena and Julius Racing) once again on Sunday, this time in a private duel for tenth place.

The Northern Talent Cup field now heads back to the Red Bull Ring for the season finale, with the 2022 winner waiting to be crowned. Will it be Moor, or can Farkas continue his roll? The number 28 has some serious form in Austria. Join us for the 2022 decider alongside IDM from the 2nd to the 4th of September in Styria, with just 14 points separating the two riders at the top and the final 50 on the table.
