In the fourth round of the Alpine Elf Europa Cup, Gosia Rdest proved that he can do better. At the weekend of September 8-10 in Barcelona, aviates 7th, moving up to 10th place in the overall classification of the French Cup.
Gosia Rdest returned to the French Cup in style after the summer break. From Friday, the Polish woman showed good speed and in the first tenning took 3rd place. In qualifying for the first race, the bet was even, and the time difference between the first 10 places was only half a second. Gosia Rdest finished in 8th place in this playoff.
In the first race, the safety car entered the track three times, which made it difficult for our competitor to advance. He finished the race in 8th place. But immediately after him, the judges noticed that during an excessive maneuver a yellow flag appeared on the track. As a result of the situation being very controversial, the judges just decided to change the position, which caused Gosia to be classified in the 9th position.
He started from 12th place for the second race. This stage was also interrupted by the safety car which entered the track twice this time. There was not much time in the race, but nevertheless the Polish woman managed to climb to the 8th place, and after imposing a penalty on one of the players, she finally finished the competition in the 7th place.
– It was good to get back to racing after a few months off. The Barcelona circuit is definitely one of my favourites. The conditions were very demanding, both for the competitors and the car. It was very hot, which meant that we could not afford to drive directly behind the car in front of us during the race, because then the temperature of the water increased significantly, which also had an effect on the car’s lack of power. As for the next race and the Monza circuit,
is a legendary track and a unique product on our racing calendar. I will be running here for the first time in my life. I had the chance to ride this track on the simulator and, of course, watch the Formula 1 race. I think it will be a very interesting challenge for our Alpine cup and I hope for big changes – says Gosia Rdest, a Polish competitor.
The Polish woman is currently in 10th place in the overall classification of the cup. The next round of the Alpine Elf Europa Cup will take place on the weekend of September 23-25 at the Italian Monza track.
