Robin D\'Hondt is the 2007 Belgian National 1:8 Champion. The emerging young talent claimed the title with a calculated drive to second place in the final round at Roeselare over the weekend.

D\'Hondt qualified second for the event behind outgoing Champion Steven Cuypers making it an all Serpent/Mega front row at the 2008 1:8 European Championship host circuit.

Making the most of his TQ position Cuypers, the winner of Round 3, led the final well into the second half of the race before an engine cut out ended a great drive.

The winner of Round 1 and Round 4 of the Championship, D\'Hondt held second knowing it was enough for him to become National Champion.

Winning the Belgian Championship completes a great season for D\'Hondt and his distinctive Shell liveried Serpent 960. Earlier in the season won the Benelux Championship title.
