IVAN LAZZARINI: “Alcarras was a really demanding circuit, we won again in S4 with Ruiz, who reiterated his superiority, Vandi still did well and got on the podium. In this class we are still in first and second place in the Championship.
As for the S1GP class, it was a difficult weekend for Schmidt, the dirt section was one of the key points of the track, perhaps the toughest so far.
Unfortunately, Schmidt had to remedy a crash in the second corner in race 1 and above all deal with the fierce wild cards opponents, including the very fast Moreira.
What interests us, however, is that our TM Factory is still leading the Championship standings.
Elia Sammartin also did well, who finished in seventh place, signing his best lap in the last heat, now Elia is in fourth place in the Championship.
We will see you soon in Italy, on June 5th in Sardinia for the third world round.”
