FINAL

In the final I started the race in 10th position but, after a strong start, I was in 4th place at the end of the first lap behind Robert Batlle, Borja Hernandez and Antonio Salmeron. At the 10 minute mark, after a good fight with Antonio, I was able to move into 3rd position but, in the second pit stop, at the 15 minute mark, the engine stopped and I lost 2 laps before my pit crew was able to get it re-started and get my car back out on the track. After the stop, I was in 9th position, and with the limited time remaining, I was only able to work my way back up to 7th.
