After a weekend with a lot of battle on the track, here is our top 5 of the weekend:

5 – Successful transition for Thomas Ferrando

The French driver who drived at the beginning of the season with the Alex Caffi Motorsports team decided to join CAAL Racing. He left Most with his first podium of the season in race 1 and a 4th place in race 2. He will undoubtedly be one of the drivers to follow during the second half of the season.

4 – Venturi at Most … but not on the track

While he was present in Most this Friday, Florian Venturi announced on social networks his separation with the team Go Fas Racing, explaining that he would not have found an agreement with the team. Their partnership ends with 3 wins and the title of vice-champion Elite 2 last year.

3 – An increasingly important level in Elite 2 divison

Giorgio Maggi achieved an incredible performance in the Superpole in Elite 2. With a time of 1:41:339 he was second by Lasse Soerensen with almost 8 tenths of a second. If he had achieved that time in the Elite 1 division superpole, he would have been in front of the poleman, Nicolo Rocca who made his turn in 1:41:431. Maggi, currently leader in the Elite 2 championship proves that the second division of NWES is more and more competitive.

2 – Upheaval in the Elite 1 championship

Alon Day, has had one of the toughest weekends of his career. While starting from the 3rd position in race 1, a collision with Jacques Villeneuve forced him to retire. Judged responsible for the incident, it was decided to withdraw him 10 points in the championship. Race 2 ended with an accident in the first corner, forcing him to retire again. The defending champion is now 3 rd in the championship, 29 points behind new leader Loris Hezemans.

1 – The incredible series of Lasse Søerensen

While he arrived in the championship only at Franciacorta, Lasse Søerensen has climbed again two time on the podium this weekend in the Elite 2 division. He continues his incredible series: 6 podiums in 6 races. The Dane, now 4 th in the championship, is more than ever a serious contender for the title.
