NÚÑEZ BOUNCES BACK TO PODIUM FINISH
Entering the 3rd round of the iRX World Championship Qualifying Series, Luis Núñez was sitting 10th in the standings having had some unlucky feature runs. Brands Hatch seemed to be going worse, with bad runs in both the heat race and the consolation race leaving him second last on the grid for the feature. Three corners later... he moved from 9th to 2nd driving 'through the smoke' of what was a very big crash. He drove solidly to come home in 3rd place, and a welcome first podium finish.
Beau had a stronger round than he had expected, winning his heat race and starting on pole for the feature. However he would get caught up in the major crash, dropping him well back to almost last place. A spirited drive through the pack would see him fight back to 4th place, and another good points haul.
Beau and Luis are now 6th and 7th in the series, and well ahead of the qualifying cut line
