The Kiwi-dominated crew of the locally based Luc Dewulf's Kateie scored a runaway win in the first Mumm 36 Grand Prix of the year at Nieuwpoort, Belgium, yesterday. Second-placed Thomas Friese's I Punkt of Germany could not dislodge them. Bouwe Bekking brought Dutchman Peter de Ridder's Mean Machine through to third. Britain's Tim Barrett in Bradamante and John Oswald's Destiny Angel were seventh and ninth.
