P2, P3 & P7 for TeamEVEN today at RoadAtlanta for the third race in the Norwegian SimRacing Championship
April 05, 2020
13 year-old Benjamin Fuglesang finished P2 today, another impressive result after he finished P3 in race 1 at Spa earlier this season. Oskar Biksrud (13) finished P3 and secured his very first podium in sim-racing. To complete the very strong line up, Dennis Bjerke (12) finished P7, also his best result in the championship. Unfortunately Karl Peder Nordstrand went off the track in a close battle with another driver, when he was P4. Ole Christian Veiby got flagged early in the finale after being off track.
“I’m so impressed and proud of our young guys today, says #TeamEVEN Sporting Director Roy Snellingen. “It’s only a few months since they started sim-racing, and already they have proved themselves to be very strong contenders in the championship. They are only 12-13 years-old, but already up there fighting with the more experienced drivers and being faster than them. Focus now is on the next race, and tomorrow we start training for Interlagos!”
6 TeamEVEN drivers were on the start list for the third race in the Championship at Road Atlanta today. 5 drivers qualified for the a-finale, after a very intense and close qualifying session where top 30 were separated by less than a second. Andreas Mikkelsen completed the race with a good P5 in the c-finale.
Race 4 in the Championship takes place at Interlagos 3 April.
