Bad luck in Final Race for Ombra Racing

Final act of the 55th Macau Grand Prix with the 15 laps proper race, the worldwide recognized F3 World Championship in a single race.

Today too the first km have determined the result of the entire race. Just after the start, in the straight before the Mandarin turn, Streit and Bird crashes creating some turmoil in the cars group. Winslow, after a good start, avoided contacts, but at the Lisboa curve he found the track closed by Ericsson car who crashed against the barrier. Suddendly he was at 20th place, he recovered three places in three laps, but pushing to reduce the gap he did a mistake at the Police curve ending his race with a crash against the rail in lap 6.

Same destiny for Matsushita, very smart in the first moments of the race, he was 12th after the first lap, but he did a mistake too at lap 6 closing Ombra adventure in Macau.

Bitter feelings in Ombra box at the end of the race Hartley and Maki 3rd and 4th under the checkered flag, started after Matsushita, while Vanthoor, 6th , was side by side with Winslow at the start, but also the consciuosness to have shown on the track the strenght of the team also in a prestigious place like Macau is.

Ends here an intense and full of satisfaction season for chignolo d'isola team, some rest after the Asian tour de force and then everything will be focused on next season.

Massimo Pollini, manager: "I've repeated to the bore during these days that Macau hides dangers since the first meters of the free practice until the checkered flag in the final race. Today all was set to close the season with a great result, we missed a bit of luck, but the team has shown to be competitive at such a level. This evening we'll celebrate a great season, then some rest and we'll focus on 2009 season."
