Kyle Mitchell again took maximum rookie points after a controlled drive to fourth on the road. This became second when Jazeman and Grunwell were disqualified for a technical infringement found during post race scrutineering.
Mitchell was fourth for the entire race but had to soak up some pressure from David Zhu and Dennis Vollmar for the final laps. “I slowed a little to save the tyres and just drove quick enough to make sure they didn’t get too close” reported Kyle. The reward for a mature drive was another first in the Rookie Class and despite the first race non-finish he is now only 11 points behind the class leader, Ross Jamison. “Both Kyle and Akhil drove well this weekend and they are proving to be the best of the rookie’s” remarked Eurasia’s Mark Goddard. “I am sure they will be able to compete on a regular basis with the three more experienced drivers at the front, particularly as we should now be on a more level playing field from now on.”
