Freddy's Luck Turns Around

Freddy's Luck Turns Around

After two rounds marred by bad luck and car trouble, Freddy Nordström's luck finally changed for the better last weekend (5th-6th July). After a trying round on home soil at Brands Hatch just a few weeks ago, Freddy arrived at the Tours Speedway in France for the third round of the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series with an improved car and a change in fortune.

With two practice sessions behind him at the start of the weekend, Freddy's confidence in his car improved, as he set two top 10 results, one of which left him fastest in the Junior Class, despite the pressure of the impressive 24 car grid.

Freddy's confidence was further cemented after Saturday's qualifying session. After holding onto a provisional second place for much of the session, Freddy ended in fifth place, to claim his best grid slot of the season so far. An untroubled first encounter on Saturday saw Freddy promote himself to fourth place for much of the outing, however after a race restart following an incident, he slipped to fifth overall and also second place in the Junior category to claim his best finish of the season so far.

Sunday morning was dominated by the dark skies and looming rain. The sixth fastest lap during Saturday's race meant Freddy cemented himself sixth place on the grid for race two.

Freddy found himself facing a struggle ahead of race two, despite the issue of starting on the outside on an oval track, a heavy downpour added to the spectacle. Regardless of the water logged track, Freddy battled the elements to come out the other side unscathed and again with a fifth place finish overall and another second place in the Junior Class.

Looking back on his most successful weekend so far this season, Freddy said: "It is such a relief to finally have some good luck. We've had an extremely difficult start to the season and it was becoming hard to look forward, but we arrived here with an improved car and things have got better and better.

"The improvements on the car since the last round have made a big difference. That together with the fact we managed to keep out of trouble meant I can finally add some decent points to my championship attack," he continued.

Freddy currently sits seventh overall in the Elite Championship standings, whilst also leading the Junior Championship. He now has a short break until the fourth round of the season at the infamous Nurburgring circuit in Germany, during the 19th-20th July.
