Date posted on July 31, 2012 · Published by Mark Goddard
The JK Racing Asia Series held rounds seven and eight at the iconic Spa Francorchamps Circuit in Belgium. The challenging track In the Ardennes as usual threw extremes of weather at the drivers with one dry and one wet race. Danial Hiqmar impressed in race one with a fourth place finish whilst rookie, Josh Raneri, did well to finish eighth in race one and tenth in the wet race two.
Both Eurasia drivers were disappointed with their performance in qualifying giving themselves a lot of work to do in the races. Danial started race one in 8th place and steadily made his way up to fourth at the flag, a fine drive. Josh also made a good start but lost out on the last lap and had to be content with eighth place.
Race two was wet and a daunting prospect for the drivers on the seven kilometer circuit. Danial and Josh both had good pace by the end of the race, their lack of wet weather experience telling in the early stages of the race. Danial finished 7th with Josh in 10th.
