Rik Hemeryck drives home the Porsche Macan


Page text

Rik Hemeryck just turned out to be the winner of the Top Series Grand Prix. On Carlitto vh Zorgvliet (Burggraaf) he edged out the former German champion Marc Bettinger. Only a few hundredths of a second made the difference between the numbers one and two. The difference in return was huge, as Hemeryck drove home victorious with a brand new Porsche Macan. Cassandra Braekmans, the first rider in the jump-off, immediately set the standard with a fast clear round. The Belgian Young Rider ended up nicely in third.

Rik Hemeryck: 'My car was to have a Porsche and now I have one. Unbelievable. During the prize giving ceremony I did the lap of honnor with the new Macan. I touched the pedal and the car immediately advanced super fast. All of this I thank to my wife, who rides the horse normally. She broke two ribs last months. That's why I took over Carlitto. Amazing horse. He's also like a Porsche!'
