Round two of the Endurance eRacing World Championship 2022 was held at the temple of speed – Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, and after a successful first round Burst Esport aimed to continue and build on that momentum.
Once again both the DPi and LMP2 car secured pole position, but due to an infringement, the DPi car received a five second time penalty which sent them down to P5 in class.
Jesper Pedersen was responsible at the start for our DPi entry and with his experience and skill, quickly climbed up the field and into the lead. Michi Hoyer, Dawid Mroczek, and Jernej Simoncic all showed blistering pace and consistency, which after a smooth sailing 12 hours of high speed racing secured them their second consecutive win of extended their championship lead.
Damian Skowron, who put the LMP2 car on pole in Friday’s qualifying session, sat behind the wheel at the start, and like at Matsusaka he led the class field throughout the opening hours. Tom Oldenmener took over from the Pole and maintained the great pace benchmark that Damian set, which gave Rasmus Andreasen an easier time in the car when he replace the dutchman. And despite being extremely unlucky with traffic, he still kept a significant lead over the nearest competitors.After 12 hours of racing, the trio crossed the line to take their maiden win of the season and the championship lead in the LMP2 class.
Rasmus Andreasen says:
“After the podium finish at Matsusaka in which we felt could have been more, we were determined to bounce back and take it one step further. We achieved that with this win, but we won’t stop here. We are now moving focus to the third round of the EEWC 2022 season at Sebring, where I’m pretty sure we are in for a bumpy experience with the nature of the track. Damian and Tom did an incredible job, and also Cameron Rodger, who contributed greatly in the preparations for this race. A great team effort in which we will build on and be even stronger in upcoming races.”
Round 3 of the 2022 Endurance eRacing World Championship takes place around the Sebring International Raceway on the 30th of April.
