MP had already claimed the Dutch Formula Ford 1800 title in 2000 but in 2002 it would display unparalleled dominance. Driving the older Mygale chassis, Jaap van Lagen proved unbeatable, especially during the first part of the season. Teammate Dillon Koster shared in the team’s joy by taking one more victory for MP and finishing fourth in the Dutch title race. Ardi van der Hoek was the third driver in an expanded team, as at the start of the season Cock Kool had decided to hand the team over to Arie van der Hoek. Meanwhile, Dick van der Wilt had taken over the team’s management from Walter van Lent.
