FRA Motorsport Take Top Two Steps on the Podium in Split Two

Sunday night saw us head to Laguna Seca for round 8 of the V8 Supercar Online Premier Series. Pre Qualifying times set the grid for super split 2 which saw Kyle start in P2 and Jacob in P3. Both the boys being comfortable with car setup saw them P1 and P2 for the first half of the race. With Borgy jumping Jacob in pit lane and with Kyle taking tyres and Jacob not getting tyres in the pit sequal. Jacob dropped back to P3 and unfortunately wasn’t up to pace as the leaders. Kyle had a intense 7 lap battle with Borgy until the last lap where he slowed to save fuel which saw Jacob being able to grab P2. That saw FRA come P1 and P2 and our first ever P1 P2 finish. With Kyle being the winner of split 2 that allows him to be invited to race in top split.

This was Kyles 2nd top split showing. With a hot track and much more harder competition things weren’t easy for Kyle. Race 1 was a good for Kyle moving through from where we started in P30 up to P24. Race 2 wasn’t the best. Starting out in P35 with again different track conditions Kyle battled with car setup. Kyle was looking at a solid top 20 but unfortunate late race contact in the closing laps saw him receiving a drive through penalty and coming him in P27. We head to Imola with high hopes and fingers crossed for the Imola 650 on Friday night for race 1 of season 5 of AOSC.
