The British driver was joined for the first time by his brother, Nick, on the podium for the second encounter at the Dutch seaside circuit, after the siblings dominated qualifying the day before. Nicholas Ferrer took third, the only non-V6 powered driver to feature in the overall top three throughout the weekend, whilst Nikolaj Ipsen and Gregory Rasse joined Walker on the rostrum for the opening race.

Xavier Georges trailed team mate Jeremy Lorenco in the 2-Eleven category both times, however he currently shares the championship lead with Walker. Meanwhile Christophe Laroche took an Exige class win in race one, whilst David Harvey dominated the Open class.

The opening race featured a first corner incident in the midfield, but all of the drivers involved were able to continue. Meanwhile Andrew Wright and reigning champion Thomas Dehaibe shared the Production honours, and the former sits just five points adrift of the title leaders as the championship heads to Spa-Francorchamps next month.
