GES S2 R2 COTA

A mistake by Simracing for Holland caused a temporary reshuffle at the front of the field at the beginning of the race, and with NKH Racing pitting early as part of their alternative strategy, for the majority of the race, the Legends prototype would, as in round one, be fighting the HAWK Simracing entry.

Running as high as 3rd during the pit windows, after the driver swap the main competition for the Legends continued to be HAWK Simracing – different drivers, but the same battle.  After the fight had raged for nearly 80 laps, a mistake by the HAWK finally put some distance between the cars.

NKH, on their alternative strategy, now showed themselves to be the main threat to the 6th place spot occupied by the Legends car, and were closing fast.  After a frantic couple of laps, with the leader a lap ahead and in close proximity, the NKH car took the position with only a couple of corners remaining in the race.

Whilst 7th place matched the finish of round one, it could easily have been better.  With the drivers starting to understand the car better, their collective performance took a step forward, and bodes well for the future.

Whilst the race was not without incident, the team moved to the top of the CleanX Challenge standings.
