This weekend was the final Mini Max race for Nick, next season the planning is to take part at the Junior Class, so it was very important for Nick to close this chapter in a very good way,…
We started the race weekend on Friday afternoon with some set-up testing, and on Saturday Nick could show his name on the top of the charts what gives a lot of confidence for the race on Sunday,….
Nick qualified at the 4th place out of a field of 16 pilots.
Nick’s start was OK and he moved up 1 position, which he lost in Lap 4, but Nick continued making pressure and could recover place 3 again but had to give up this position again because he could not get the right temperature in his tires and lost grip, but Nick had not to worry because the driver at P3 would get a penalty of 5 seconds, so Nick would start at place 3 next race,….
P3 is the inside of the track and Nick could not make an advantage of it at the start but in Lap 2 Nick made the move to P2, immediately he could stick at the bumper from Luca and when Nick wanted to place the attack Luca forced Nick in the dirt,… Nick lost connection and started to defend his position, with result that on the end he lost 2 places and ended this race after hard but fear fights on P4.
Start from P3 again,… Nick did a perfect start and took the lead from the moment Nick was leading he did never got under pressure and could win the race easily.
Event result P2
Vice Champion BMC 2015
P4 (with same points as P3) BNL 2015
