Competitive group with great racing
Round 6 of the championship. Qualified on pole position, made a good start and had a great clean battle with Ben Yiangou throughout the race. It was a very competitive group at the front and I like that because it pushes me to drive the best I can, I prefer to be in a group with strong drivers than a group where there isn’t a challenge. I made it into the A final, which keeps my consecutive run going.
