Bad luck has sadly been a common theme for us in Sports Car Open, but Interlagos which provided the location for round 5 of the current season, was supposed to turn around a so far less than optimal season.
Simeon Lynch and Charlie Summers were handed the task to change things around, but the qualifying session didn’t go as hoped and we were set to start from P15.
However, despite being on a track which can be tricky in terms of traffic management, both Charlie and Simeon drove at a pace which matched the leaders and was climbing up the standings. A slight mistake cost crucial time and set them back, but they never gave up and after four hectic hours of racing they crossed the line in 7th place.
Let’s hear from Simeon regarding a great comeback drive:
“It was a fun outing, we qualified in the thick of it which meant survival was key in the first few hours. A silly mistake in traffic later on cost us a potential top 5 which i’m disappointed about however once again the race pace was up there with the leading pack”
Better fortunes this time, but we always strive to improve, no matter if we win or not, so the penultimate round at Spa-Francorchamps will be crucial to finish the season off in style. That race takes place on the 6th of March.
