Sunday's battle at Suzuka was a very nervous round for us. Out of the Fritosport team, E. FRITO Sanchinelli was the driver representing our guys. After a tough time in practice, we went through various setups in order to determine which direction to go with things. Thanks to our team mates advice, we focused on certain things. After some playing with the car, it came down to qualifying and last minute bump-up in tire pressures.
Higher pressures meant a more stable car in the high speed sections. While we decided to not take a pit-stop, it was a huge gamble. This time however it payed off! We sputtered to the line while saving fuel for about 3-5 laps at the end. In the last chicane before the last turn we ran out of fuel and the car was slowing/sputtering its last fumes. Luckily after being caught by a pack led by Andy Bonar the Start/Finish fell at just the right time and length on the straight to award us with P10. We scored points for our team in the THC!
