2018 Formula Challenge Rounds 11 & 12 Race Reports (page 3)

Belgian Round Review

Race 1: Adrian Campfield started the race from Pole Position, but was unable to defend against Marcin Rybaczuk’s attack on the Kemmel straight. Chris Butcher passed Adrian at the same spot one lap later. On Lap 6, the STAX Racing drivers swapped positions. After that, Adrian started attacking Chris Butcher. On Lap 9, he attacked the Englishman going into the Bus Stop Chicane and two laps later going into Les Combes. Both times, he couldn’t make the pass stick and soon after, Butcher built a small gap to Adrian. After losing P4 to Williams on the last lap, he crossed the finish line in P5.

Chris set the fastest time in qualifying, but started the race from P6 due to a penalty. However, he gained two places in the opening laps. On Lap 6, he first passed Adrian and then, going into Blanchimont, Chris Butcher. Going into the final lap of the race, it looked like Chris would finish the race in second position. However, Marcin Rybaczuk ahead of him put his car into reverse while braking for Stavelot Corner, spinning his car and gifting Chris the race win.

Race 2: Adrian started the second race of the Belgian round from P11. He survived the big crash at Eau Rouge (well, Raidillion actually), continuing the race in P8. Unfortunately, he then was involved in another big crash, this time at Les Combes. He headed to the pits for repairs and continued the race in P20. Adrian finished the race in P16, but was promoted to P15 post-race due to penalties.

Chris lined up at the start of the second race in P15. While he was able to pass his Championship rival Chris Butcher after the start, he then became victim of the multi-car pileup at Radillion. He not only lost a lot of positions, his car also suffered heavy damage. Chris tried to limp back to the pits, but Hupka rear-ended him on the Kemmel straight, sending his car over the safety fence and ending his race immediately.

After the Hungarian and Belgian rounds, Adrian Campfield is ninth in the Drivers’ Championship while Chris Shepherd is second behind Red Arrow Racing’s Chris Butcher. Patryk Gerber, who drove for us in Germany, is 50th in the standings. In the Teams’ Championship, STAX Racing is still second, behind Red Arrow Racing and ahead of Cenobite Motorsports.

Below, you can find the broadcast and the result tables of the Belgian Formula Challenge round. The next round of the championship will be held in Monza, Italy, on August 28th, 2018.
