Saturday is for the SCT and for the 4WD championship and as I had already won the SCT championship I let Murat Yacici use my SCT for the first ever race for him, on a side note he won the race so great result for him and Serpent.
I was in 3rd place when all the points were dropped so I wanted to secure that 3rd place overall. Practice went well and I got the car running well around our tight and technical curcuit.
I was 3rd fastest, on with quals and again I was going ok and ended 3rd in qualifying.
In the actual race it was a good set of heats with the last round being the best race of the day I think 1st place changed about 5 times. Overall I was 3rd and that was enough to secure 3rd place in the championship.
First series with Serpent SCT and to get the win in the championship in 3 rounds was great news for me and Serpent, also the top 3 were all Serpents.
This was not a very good day for me as I was suffering with a really bad cold, I was 7th quickest in practice but as the day went on I was getting slower and slower and for the first time I ended up in the C-Final so I was not very happy with that. As the points I could get would not alter the championship I let the organizer Serdar Aytemiz use my car for the C-Final and he ran very well getting some fast laps in the car enough to be in the A-Final times so the car was and I quote from Serdar “Very well balanced”.
Overall I finished in 8th place this time in the championship, not what I wanted but acceptable considering.
I would like to thank all the series sponsors for their continued support:
