RC Enerson: Barber MotorSport Park

Barber was a great points weekend in my eyes, coming away with a 6th and 4th isn’t bad and we maintained 5th in the championship. It also helped a lot that our cars rolled off the transport with a great balance. The first practice brought a ton of confidence to me as we came away P1 with a car I knew was going to be competitive. Every change we made seemed to make the car just that much better. Going into the second practice the track changed a lot and threw us off a little, we ended up at the back of the pack and that meant we really needed to put a good car together for qualifying the next morning.

Qualifying at 8AM is always tricky being the first cars on track so we had to be careful on what we chose to change on the car. After a long qualifying we ended up P5 but due to some penalties we were moved up to P3 for race 1. Race 1 didn’t go quite to plan as we were able to get up to second on the first lap but after a yellow we came to the restart and got thrown off the road at the exit of turn 5, so we had to settle with our 6th place finish.

For race 2 we were starting 4th so we had a great chance at a podium. After the start we settled into 4th but while going for a pass for 3rd, I had to put two wheels in the grass to avoid contact, which meant settling for that 4th place finish. Overall a positive weekend, can’t wait for Indy GP!
