Race day

We finished our booth early in the morning and were looking at a busy racing schedule with 2 warmups, 2 qualification sessions and 2 finals. We used the warmup sessions to get a good idea of the current setup and we had to run some km’s on new tires. During warmup we had 1st places in our classes, and continued that in the qualification round; again for both the dutch and EURO time attack finished 1st. Our racing driver Ronald Gosens managed to set a PR of 1.59.1 in one of these sessions. Then time for the finals that are a bit different: No 20 minute session but only 1 chance to set a fast lap, this is time ATTACK! Again both finals Ronald managed to get his Integra DC5 over start/finish with a first place.

The Team

A special thank you to team our mechanics (Reinier, Peter, Toine)!

This whole season and even last weekend with 2 races in 1 day they managed to keep the car doing what it has to do: RACE! The setup was very good, the engine did its job the whole year and every small issue we had was solved in time for every next race or session!

Celebration

Time for the podium! We closed our pitboxes and went off to the start of the pitlane. Let’s get the party started with a champagne shower while getting the 1st place in the European Time Attack Masters NA Class!!!

Our driver Ronald Gosens was called to the podium and left with 3 cups! We used the last bottle of champagne to splash on our team along with some bystanders, sorry people.

A word from our driver

Ronald Gosens: “Personally I am really satisfied about this season, we have shown that you don’t need 700 BHP and a bis turbos to kick some a** and have huge fun! Our Honda Integra R has a different motto: “Corner speed is the key!”

I want to thank everyone in our team again and am really looking forward to next year. We will improve our car and come back stronger! “
