Hi Q NZ Formula First National Series Round One

Hi Q NZ Formula First National Series Round One

The Team had three cars to run at the First round of the Summer Series.

Friday testing was an open test day but we still managed 5 Sessions and by the end

of the day the times across the field were very close, so there would be no room for

errors in Qualifying, The usual frantic search for good tow took place, Alex in the #41

car was clipped in turn 7 and lost the bunch which compromised his qualifying result.

Callum and Dylan didn’t quite get the tow they wanted so 6th and 7th was the result.

The racing was close and intense over the three races Dylan picking up a 4th, Alex a

personal best 6th, At times Callum was struggling with straight line speed giving

the Team some work to do before the next round.

The Team cars ran without drama just leaving us to concentrate on tuning, while others in

the field had mechanical dramas to deal with.

Overall Dylan is 7th just 5 points off 4th overall and 4 points off the Rookie Points lead,

so he is going to be in for a tough season.

Alex and Callum 10th and 11th and will improve during the season no doubt.

The Team is now preparing for Round 2 at Taupo November 19/20th.
