Long Whatton racer Simon Ward ended his season of racing in France in the best possible way by taking his first race win. Ward racing in the French Porsche-VTR championship, stormed to victory in the final round of the championship at Nevers. Loughborough Echo
A race win from 4th on the grid, helped by a crash from the leading 2 cars the lead came at the end of lap 1 and despite stiff opposition from Fiabe Sospiri in the Spritel Car, Simon held off the Italian to take his First win.
First time in the car.
First time in a front wheel drive race car.
First time at Oulton Park International circuit. First time with a new team.
2nd place! A tough weekend where we didn’t crash, fall off, spin or put a foot wrong. Unlike many of our competitors!
2nd place at silverstone! Turning into a bit of a habit this podium lark! A fabulous race weekend, good strong test on the friday followed by a strong qualifying and an excellent race, all underpinned by a magnificent race team in WRO racing, I look forward to racing with them next year.
