“Saturday was a bit of bad day for us until the end of the day, we had radio problems all day on spectrum as well as some others too. We tryed everything we could to stop this from occuring but nothing would work, but near the end of the day it stopped. We had chance to try a couple of engines and that was about it, the car was good though from a previous test-day that we had done. Mark had problems earlier on in the day aswell because he hit somebody full speed on the straight and his car was not right until the end of the day where he got it near to where he had the car before. My dad re-built my car at the end of the day ready for Sunday. On Sunday the Weather was great for a change, in the practise session my car was really good and Mark got his car feeling right again. In the first round of qualyfying I set TQ by 1 second in front of Mark, In the second round a backmarker spun and I hit him then a car hit me which took a masive chunk out of the tyre, I was still on TQ.” Read More… [Source - serpent.com]
Serpent reports – “Last weekend we had our first 1/8 race on the ARENA racing track in Athens. The debut of the Serpent 966 in Greece and the first win. No practice was done on Saturday due to heavy rain so we have to go directly to the race. No rain on Sunday but the track still wet. The race was delayed until the track dried. 4 qualification rounds and Sotiropoulos set TQ for the race followed by Farmakis. Total 6 Serpent cars on the A main. On the race the battle was between Sotiropoulos and Totomis until rain came again to the track and changes everything. Fortunately it was just for a minute and grip was built again after a while. Sotiropoulos kept his pole and won the race. On the podium with Giannis and the 3rd place was Arkoumanis Giannis on the first race with the Serpent 960.” Read More… [Source - serpent.com]
