The 2020 ETRC DIGITAL RACING CHALLENGE continues to draw in the spectators as the series enters the second half of the season with the Czech Republic hosting Round 5 from the Most Circuit this weekend.
Shane Brereton recorded points finishes in both rounds of the 2020 ETRC DIGITAL RACING CHALLENGE at Nurburgring last weekend, securing his highest position of eighth place in the Apollo Tyres Tor Truck Racing MAN.
Brereton’s trademark explosive start was to no avail as the Apollo Tyres truck was a victim of the first lap carnage in race one and, having lost contact with race control, he believed a red flag would be the outcome but the race continued leaving the driver in eleventh place.
Race Two was considerably better, battling his way to an eighth-place finish after an early delay.
The Apollo Tyres Tor Truck Racing team driver, gave his thoughts to FLEET SPEAK, reflecting on a mixed experience last weekend and looking ahead to the Most Round this Sunday 5th July.
‘It was disappointing to lose contact with race control, I thought the first race would be red-flagged with a lot of trucks off the circuit, but that did not happen and we had an uneventful run to the flag. Race Two was more enjoyable, we were on the pace of the top six drivers but an early delay left us trying to make up ground on the leaders so eighth at the end was a satisfying result’.
‘Most is the track used as a test for the FIA ETRC, many drivers were there a couple of weeks ago which might give them an advantage, but as I get more accustomed to simulator racing I am hopeful that we are making progress to battle in the middle of the pack’.
The 2020 ETRC DIGITAL RACING CHALLENGE Championship is still led by Norbert Kiss who finally saw his unbeaten run end in race two at the Nurburgring, after seven consecutive victories he was forced to concede to Teo Calvet in the Buggyra Racing Freightliner. The Czech team will be encouraged by that result as they head to their home circuit this weekend.
The races are shown live on Sunday 5th July, Qualifying is at 17.30 CET with the digital races set for 18.00 CET and 1900 CET so set your clocks and join us at FLEET SPEAK to view the RACES CLICK HERE.
