It's been a tough weekend for us, everything went well as we did in practice and till last minute in Q3, Red flag stopped our good flow so far, it could have been around P6 and made a another story for the race but couldn't complete Alex's best lap by red flag.
In the race, we pushed so hard to change flow to our side, finally we up to top10 from P22 in last an hour but we had a drive-through penalty by a stint time infringemet then finished P16 at the end. Result was not great but thanks for top job by mechanics in the pit works and great effort by my team mates, next Paul Ricard is best track for GT-R so keep it up for the next! Thank you for your support!
