Precision Motorsports Monza preview

Discussion in 'Formula SimRacing' started by Johannes Kunkel, Aug 31, 2013.

  1. After winning the European GP in Valencia with Bono Huis and finishing 2nd and 3rd in the World Series the team is ready to tackle the historical Monza circuit. The 2013 season is breaking into its final stage with just 5 races to go after the Round 10 in Monza. Sudden retirement of Morand from simracing now makes the route for 4th consecutive year of driver’s and constructor’s titles rather predictable, however the team has lost the lead in the World Series driver’s championship. Both Martin Gosbee and Rob van Starkenburg are fully determined to change that.


    To increase chances of GT Omega Racing for overall 2nd place in the constructors championship, the team is happy to announce return of Jeffrey Rietveld who will be partnering Jack Keithley for the rest of the season. Jeffrey finished 3rd overall in the last years FSR World Championship and won the World Series title in 2011 with Precision Motorsports.

    Track History:

    Jaakko Mikkonen dominated the 2009 race in Monza, keeping himself in the hunt for the 2009 title. 2010 Italian GP saw the team getting 1 2 3 finish with Bono winning. The same success was repeated in 2011, 1 2 3 finish in the World Championship and 1 2 finish in the World Series. Last year’s race saw the team struggle with setup and superhuman effort of Bono was good enough only for P2.

    Ondrej Kuncman commented:
    "The last races we have been a bit unfortunate, especially in the World Series but I hope we can finally break this streak of bad luck. Historically we have always been strong in Monza, but the race is always lottery here with very limited chances to get away out of slipstream and higher risk of incidents with low grip and heavy braking zones. I thought we had made a step forward in Valencia already, but that clearly wasn’t the case so we worked hard to explore areas that we didn’t put much focus on recently and we have a very competitive and consistent car here. Hopefully there is no drama happening so we can enter the last stage of the season victorious."

    The World Series race starts on Saturday at 20:00 CET and the World Championship on Sunday, 19:00 CET.
