Round Review

Both FTS cars victims of first-corner crash at Sakhir

In the World Championship, Faster Than Speed had another very short and frustrating race at Sakhir. Both Norbert Leitner and Patrick De Wit were victims of the start-incident triggered by Mereli, who lost control of his car under braking and hit Norbert before T1, creating a chain collision involving several cars. Patrick was unable to avoid the car of his team mate across the track and collided with him. Both drivers stopped for repairs at the end of the opening lap but the cars were too damaged to continue. After two very disappointing races, we are really hoping for better luck at Canada!
