Fontes, Forne On The Podium At Silverstone Twice

The Radical European Masters celebrated a key round for Álvaro Fontes and Toni Forné last weekend, at the Home of British Motorsport: Silverstone. And both Spaniards were able to comply with solvency over the weekend and fulfilled their objectives achieving a double podium finish. The start was not an easy one as local drivers were very quick, mainly in free practice session, in comparison with the Spanish duo.

Then, in qualifying, Forné and Fontes improved their lap times and equaled their rivals´ performance, having good prospects for weekend´s races. In race one, Fontes made the opening stint before handing over to Forné, who finished third after a sensational end of race, following up the efforts his teammate earlier in the race. Then, in race two, with Forné at the wheel of the Radical SR3, the Catalan was able to avoid an incident on the opening lap and as a result the safety car was deployed for three laps. With Fontes now driving the car, they kept fighting for the win until the end, when they decided not to take unnecessary risks, but still finishing second. It was another brilliant performance for them.

“It was a nice surprise to be as competitive as we were, taking into account our handicap. Over the weekend weather was perfect, with no rain, and it was of great help as thirty-five British drivers were competing and in wet conditions our challenge would have been even harder. In free practice we needed to improve our pace, and we were able to achieve that, despite the difficulties faced because other drivers didn´t give us some more information or details regarding this track. So they are anything but cordial with foreigners”, Forné explains, underlining that “both races were closely-fought. We were third in Race one and second in Race two. In this one we fought for another triumph, but we would rather to collect as many points as possible always with our title chances in mind. We are clear leaders in the drivers´ championship and now we are already focusing on our next stop: Spa-Francorchamps”. Besides, his teammate Fontes also says that “it was a crucial event for the championship. We managed to strengthen our lead in spite of British drivers, true specialists at this track. Particularly my dogfight for the win in race two was an awesome moment, with two tough laps. We will be back in action next month, in Belgium”.
