Tecnicar Motorsport Solutions concludes the second round of the Spanish Formula 4 Championship, scoring their first points and feeling positive ahead of Navarra.
On Friday, the collective test took place at Motorland, where our drivers were able to get to know the circuit and practice their racing line to be as well-prepared as possible for the second round of the championship.
The event at Motorland started with some challenges during the practice sessions. Our mechanics worked hard to quickly solve a problem with Eric’s car’s water pump.
In the first qualifying session, Eric managed to complete two clean laps without traffic, securing the 21st best time.
In the first race, Hiyu Yamakoshi finished in ninth position, climbing up from fourteenth place and earning his first points in the championship. Griffin Peebles finished 15th, and Eric Gené finished 21st.
After his great performance in the first race, Hiyu Yamakoshi couldn’t finish the second race due to an electrical problem. Griffin was the highest placed driver for our team, finishing 14th and engaging in some battles. Eric Gené, continuing his learning process, finished 19th.
Griffin once again had the best result for our team in the third race. He had a good start and crossed the finish line in 15th place. Eric Gené finished in 17th position after a contact at the start and driving the entire race with a turned steering wheel. Hiyu had to retire on the sixth lap after a collision with a rival.
Eric Gené: “It has been a positive weekend. I am still learning about this championship.”
Hiyu Yamakoshi: “I will try to have a better pace in the next race.”
Griffin Peebles: “It has been a good weekend, with good starts and a good pace.”
Therefore, the team is happy with the work done at Motorland Aragón, scoring the first points of the season and improving their adaptation to this demanding championship. Now, at Tecnicar Motorsport Solutions, we will focus on analyzing the data from this weekend to prepare for the third round of the year in Navarra.
