FLM Nurburgring – Rounds 6 & 7

by adrian on Aug.23, 2009, under News

Valle’s first ever visit to the Nurburgring again proved how quickly he can learn a circuit. After qualifying 3rd for round 6, Valle and Mathias managed to jump a place and finish 2nd, even after losing 6 seconds during their pit stop.

For round 7 they qualified 4th. Valle made a fantastic start to take 2nd position into turn one. Even with a serious lack of grip from the tyres he managed to keep 2nd spot up until the pit stops. Mathias unfortunately couldn’t keep the car on the track due to the tyre problems and drove off the circuit twice. The 2nd off damaged the radiator and over heated the engine, eventually leading to an engine failure.

Still a positive weekend and yet another strong 2nd place. As we head off to Silverstone and Magny Cours for the last 3 rounds in September, a win must be just around the corner.
