Tasty Teammate Tussles
With a steady haul of points in the bag, the team set to work, ready to round off the weekend with a positive performance in the final race. It wasn’t long till the Dutch crowds were treated to a nail-biting wheel-to-wheel battle between Ralf and Nikita as they threaded their way around the tight and twisty circuit. Back on the pit wall, we held our breath as each driver left just enough room for each other, Ralf managing to hold off the challenge from his Russian teammate behind. Equally, Jake valiantly held off attempts from Piquet at Tarzan corner, to come home in 5th. Another strong points haul from Ralf in 7th, whilst Nikita was unable to halt Mawson’s pass in the latter stages, he crossed the line in 9th. Completing the race, Tadasuke gave a strong performance in 16th ahead of fellow countryman Sato and Vaidyanathan.
Collecting points in each race and a shiny trophy to take pride of place back at base, we’re revved and ready to tackle leafy Nürburgring on 9-10th September.
