The weather wasn’t too hot, and no rain forecasted for the race weekend! Miguel qualified on the Saturday morning at 4th place. As the race started, the 2nd car locked up a wheel during hard braking and pushed the pole position to the side of the track. This opened the opportunity for us to jump to the front. From that moment on, MP kept on fighting for the first place and securing his second place, as the third car was on his tail. Checkered flag was out and it was a podium finish for the BRANDT team, with a second place!

On the next day, the race started with a grid inversion of 7 places, putting us on 6th position for the green flag.
Red lights off! Miguel had a good start, but no room to overtake anyone. The race was consistent, with a tight pack forming the first 7 cars. With 10 minutes to the end of the race, we were on 6th and during a fight for the 3rd place, the BRANDT car spun out, taking us back to the 17th spot. Miguel managed to get back to 16th when the checkered flag came out.
