Round Review

A double WC point-scoring finish at Silverstone!

In the World Championship, featuring an unusual driver lineup, with Eros Masciulli and Mike Partington replacing Norbert Leitner and Patrick De Wit, FTS picked up its first double point-scoring finish of its 15th FSR season!
Eros drove a perfectly executed two-stopper race, and even briefly led the race as others pitted at the end of the first stint. Showing great race pace and tyre management, Eros fiinished in 7th place.
Mike also drove a strong race on a three-stopper strategy. While he was left ruing a few minor mistakes that cost him a few places, he delivered a very solid performance despite having to recover from the back following a first-lap incident. He also showed very quick pace, setting the fastest lap of the race on multiple occasions. In similar fashion to his team-mate, Mike also scored good points by finishing in 9th place.
