Aron first time winner

03/08/14 - In front of 80.000 spectators at Assen during the Gamma Racing Day it was the Estonian Ralf Aron (Scuderia Nordica) who stood on the highest step of the podium of race 2 of the Formula Renault 1.6 NEC Junior. Anton de Pasquale still finished second after a bad start and third was for his teammate Florian Janits (Lechner Racing School).

It was a good race with lots of action and overtaking. Ralf Aron started very strong from second place and pushed Anton de Pasquale in the first corner, who fell back to fourth. De Pasquale, for the first time this year, had to show his true talent. He pushed his way forward during the race and finished second. Further in the field there was great action between Janneau Esmeijer (Provily Racing) and Ferdinand Habsburg (Lechner Racing School). Esmeijer finished fourth after he also overtook Max Defourny (Lechner Racing School) who finished fifth. Newcomer Nico Otto and Boris Kolff battled for places 11 and 12 and it was Kolff (Provily Racing) who came out in front to finish 10th in the end. Places seven and eight were for Wouter Boerekamps (Provily Racing) and Marcel Lenerz (Stuart Racing). Pontus Fredericsson (Trackstar) had a good race, he went from 13th to 9th.

 

Anton de Pasquale (Lechner Racing School): “I really had to push this race. I had a very average start and made another mistake so I had to fight to regain my position. But could not take the lead back. It was tough competition this weekend, but really enjoyed myself.”

 

Ralf Aron (Scuderia Nordica): “The team did a great job with the car again. I had a perfect start and in the first corner I could overtake Anton de Pasquale. I could pull a gap, then I had to defend myself, and had to push all the way to the end to keep de Pasquale away. But I had a perfect weekend and am now third in the championship.”

 

Florian Janits (Lechner Racing School): ”It is my second third place in eight races this year and I still have a lot to learn. I am happy with this weekend, I like Assen, it is a fast track and I really enjoyed the crowd a lot.”
