Formula G Round 2 Santa Pod

Great weekend at Round 2 of Fueltopia Formula G championship sponsored by Nankang tyres hosted at Santapod Raceway on the 19th March 2017.

 

It was a cold and windy day but the sun was out and it was a huge improvement to the following race event.

 

Practice was going well and the car was performing good. The track layout was a lot easier to manage this time with some longer straights that would benefit the higher horsepower cars but that wouldn’t stop the mighty mx5.

Qualifying went well with a best time of 38.316 which qualified me in 6th place.

 

The top 16 battles put me up against Ben Dryburgh a newcomer to the sport. I advanced to the top 8 battles with wins in both lanes

 

The top 8 battle put me up against friend Ryan Milton I knew this was going to be tuff.

Both cars mx5’s running similar power so it was down to drivers, I won my first battle in my preferred lane but lost in the second battle so it came down to time.

 

Ryan Milton 116                                                     75.022 Winner

Philip Staniford 183                                                 75.411 Loser

 

My day was over but a 5th place finish is nothing to grumble about.

Currently sitting in 5th place in the driver championship.

 

Thanks to sponsors EMP Performance and Opie Oils.
