The race event was attended by 52 drivers and there was a lot of expectations for the first battle of this competitive Championship. The track was very difficult with two different types: one with bumpy dirt and the other one with concrete in several places, and to make it even more difficult there was a famous bridge going up and down and a triple jump where several driver left a few car parts behind... definitely a spot where you could win or lose the race.
The first round was won without difficulty by 8 seconds over the second qualifier. In the second round, things got bumpier and the result was awful. In the last round when everything was looking good, a mistake on the triple jump ruined it. With a total result of 3rd in the 3 qualifiers, I was able to start 2nd in the A-main.

Able to outrun the difficulties of the track, I was able to win the main by 12 seconds ahead of the closest competitor, and with a time that in the near future would give the starting place of 1st in the final. At the final the track was very bumpy, and a little mistake could ruin the entire race. Trying to do my best, I was able to gain a few seconds’ advantage in every fueling stop. I won the race with one lap ahead of 2nd place.
