Bus Stops & Bust Ups at Spa
This week's Porsche Esports Sprint Challenge round would see the return of Yannick Lapchin to the sim, and with that a PB in qualifying starting inside the Top 10 for the main race.
Cooper Webster put the Altus Porsche on Pole Position and would lead almost half of the race before losing a couple of positions and then being tagged into a spin at Bruxelles causing heavy damage and positions lost. He would come home just inside the Top 20.
Simone Maria Marceno had a good qualifying position on the 2nd row, and would get off to a good start running in 3rd place for much of the race however had sustained damage on Lap 1 affecting his outright straight line speed. This would prove prove problematic on the long straights and once the draft ahead was lost he had to push even harder at Radillion, pushing a bit too hard causing a slowdown to drop down the order.
Yannick was now the leading Altus driver however it was bust up central in the closing two laps which remarkably given Yan's luck in this series, he was able to avoid it all to eventually cross the line in 6th, Simone making a late pass on Yan for 5th.
Spa gave us a bit of everyone - signs of good pace but a lot of craziness as well. The series takes a brief pause ahead of the final two rounds at Le Mans and Monza.
