Mustafa Alp Race report:

“Round 4 of Turkish Nationals was held in Bursa Bumod Track on 3rd- 4th of September. We had a nice weather, and atmosphere was super good. After the world’s I did not touch the car, to see how it suits our Bumod track, especially because Gubbio had also an asphalt that makes the cars push, just like Bumod. From the first practise I already broke my record from 19.7 to 19.6, so it was super good start to the race. Then I increased the toe in a little bit, added 2mm bumpsteer shim and that was it for the weekend. In the qualifiers I made 19.3 laptime, and 31 laps, all new records for me. Car had maximum steering in high speed and also lots of traction.

After qualis I changed the belts and was ready for the final. After sub finals were run, A main grid was completed with 8 XRAYs. This weekend also proved that most of the car setup worked for not only me but also for lots of XRAY drivers, as most improved their performance even if the track conditions were almost the same, compared to previous races.

Race started without any drama, only I started little late from grid and lost the lead to 2nd place starter Halit Korpe. So I was sandwiched between Halit and Alain in first lap, but then made a clean pass and started to pull away from them. In 6 minute mark I lapped the field and had an easy race from then on. I pushed a bit to make a new record but my first set of tires was not so good. After about 50 laps Halit had a problem and had to retire when he was battling with Alain for 2nd position. So Alain had an easy 2nd place. My scheduled tire stop was also done by Umut and Ahmet without any major problem so I held my lead and finished 6 laps ahead of Alain. Podium was rounded by XRAY driver Onur Vardar. Another national championship has ended where I made double title in EP stock and Nitro Touring. See you next season.”
