Round Review

Mikko shines to climb from the back of the grid to the podium!

In the World Championship, Patrick De Wit had a tough race, suffering technical issues in Q1 and struggling with a damaged car from the opening lap incidents throughout the race. He managed to nurse the car home in 12th place.
Marcel van der Linden, meanwhile, retired after being involved in the startline incident.

In the Ace division, the team had a tough Saturday. Norbert Leitner unfortunately retired from the feature race as a consequence of a lag-induced incident, ending his strong race. Thomas Mundy also retired early after doing a great start on the harder tyre compound.
In the sprint race, Norbert Leitner recovered from a difficult start to save FTS' only points of the day, by finishing in 11th place, while Thomas Mundy's race ended prematurely.

In the Pro division, what a brilliant drive it was from Mikko Suokas! After reporting his own Q1 lap for an accidental cut, he started from the back of the grid as a consequence. From there, he drove a fantastic race, with a perfectly executed strategy, making lots of overtaking moves at the right times to climb to 3rd place at the checkered flag! From the back to 3rd to take his third podium in the last four races! Hats off!
Team-mate Guglielmo Matti had a difficult race and had to retire early.
Both Mikko and the team are currently in 3rd place on the standings.
