RESULTS: Thursday Night F1 League: Round 2 @ Malaysian GP 2015

Sunday, March 29, 2015

The Typically Monsoonal Malaysian GP was Round 2 of the Racecentre F1 League. A surprising amount of cancellations saw a shorter field battle it out this week but it didn't matter because the guys were still keen to be number 1 at this track with the top 5 drivers returning this week for more. The practice session saw Scott Daniels, Jaycie Richards and Shane Gilfeather all within .1 of each other. Nothing was separating them at this point.

Qualify:

With only a short 5 minute qually a lot of the drivers spent a bit of time in the garage waiting for the Engineer to let them go on their flying laps. They would only manage 2 even 1 good lap so they had to make it stick. 2014 Champion Scott Daniels stamped his authority and claimed Pole over Jaycie Richards, Shane Gilfeather, Adam Gill and Michael Donnellan.

Race:

Red lights go out and the front row get away cleanly while Adam Gill lights up his tyres too much and takes a hard straight into the side of Shane Gilfeather who now has damaged suspension as they both go into the wall. Thankfully Michael Donnellan was caught napping having his last sip before the race. He missed the melay and bolted into P3 before the first turn. Adam and Shane collected themselves and chased him down. Unfortunately down the back of the circuit he let the revs drop too much allowing Shane to pass and then he runs wide on the astro turf allowing Adam to sneak through. Adam sees that Shane is struggling on the left hand turns and takes 3rd from him pretty quickly.

Jaycie Richards is in surprisingly early for tyres and this hurt him at the end of the race as he visited the lane 1 extra time over the whole field. At one point Adam was chasing and catching Jaycie for P2 but he just couldn't get close enough to make it happen. Jaycie was eyeing of Scott Daniels times but there was nothing he could do about it either. Daniels too good out front with only one slight mistake on his way to taking the win ahead of a talented Jaycie Richards on his 2nd outing takes home P2. Adam also drove a pretty consistent race to finish the podium. Gilfeather and Donnellan rounding out the top 5.
