On the heels of a podium finish in the AFR Remus Formula Cup race in Austria, David Richert was back for his second race event in the highly competitive Renault NEC championship which took place at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium over the weekend.
In a race marred by accidents and lengthy Safety Car periods, Richert, the lone driver from Canada, was able to survive the chaos to bring home some valuable points with an 18th place finish. The race victory was inherited by Dutch driver, Steijn Schothorst, after Kevin Jorg from Switzerland was handed a post race penalty for jumping the start.
“It seemed as though there was an incident on every lap and I was always having to avoid cars that had spun on the racing circuit or found their way into the wall on the edge of the track. I’m thrilled with the progress we made throughout the weekend and am excited to get back into the car shortly because we are so close to fighting with the rest of the field.” -David Richert
Richert’s next race will again be in the Renault NEC championship and will take place at Autodrom Most in the Czech Republic in August.
