  • It was high drama at the final Rotax MAX Euro round last weekend for DD2 points leader Xen De Ruwe when the team he was driving for, the factory Formula K outfit, withdrew him from the event on Saturday night. Unbeknown to Formula K, De Ruwe had signed to drive CRG/Maxter at this weekend's KZ2 Super Cup. Formula K issued a somewhat scathing press release about not respecting contracts and they'd rather not win the championship than have De Ruwe win it for them! And that's exaclty what happend, the move costing both driver and team any chance of fighting for the DD2 title, which went to Ben Cooper aboard Birel.
