MP Motorsport joined forces with Bas Lammers. The karting star was eager to make the jump to car racing and chose MP to do so. He got support from a sponsor that would become hugely important for MP Motorsport’s future: De Jong Packaging. Henk de Jong had been Lammers’ sponsor at the karting track where his son Daniël also learned his trade. After a difficult start of the season, MP rolled off an excellent final season in national Formula Renault 2.0. Lammers took victory once and never qualified lower than sixth. Ownership then shifted from Arie van der Hoek to Henk de Jong.
