Affolter and Aitken take Junior wins in Genk.

Dutchman Joel Affolter and Briton Jack Aitken were victorious in the two finals in the fourth round of the Rotax Euro Challenge Junior Max class at Genk in Belgium.
As the 2010 Rotax Euro Challenge drew to a close at the 1350-metre Paul Lemmens owned Genk circuit in Belgium Dutchman Joel Affolter and British driver Jack Aitken emerged victorious over a quality Junior Max field.

Strawberry Racing driver Affolter struck first in the 11-lap pre final, passing polesitter Dave Blom and outside front row starter Aitken to take the victory, a mere four tenths of a second ahead of his countryman Blom with Aitken, fellow Briton Nathan Harrison and Japan's Ukyo Sasahara completing the top five.

In the main 14-lap final Affolter and third place starter Aitken got away with Aitken grabbing the narrowest of wins in a five wide blanket finish over Harrison, Estonian Tristan Viidas and Dutch duo Jordi van Moorsel and Affolter. The top five were separated by three tenths of a second at the line with Aitken's winning margin recorded at less than six hundredths.
