Summerton Shines at Nurnberg FBMW

Jonathan Summerton started the weekend off being the fastest in his first time at the famous Norisring road circuit. Throughout the weekend Jonathan was also the fastest in sector 1. In qualifying Jonathan held the suspense with the leaders and in the final lap qualified 2nd, 4/100ths off pole. In the second qualifying session again he was with the leaders but this time they pipped him into 6th on the grid. More than 20 cars were within a second.

In race 1 Jonathan had a great start. At the first corner, the hairpin, Jonathan stayed safe as cars bumped and pushed themselves into place as the leaders fought to gain places. Jonathan managed to hold on to a very credible 4th at the checkered.

Race 2 Jonathan had a poor start dropping back to 11th place and for the next 20 laps fought desperately to gain one place at a time up to 7th place, when, with three laps to go he was t-boned by an out of control car causing a broken wing and radiator and Jonathan had to retire as his engine was overheating, finishing 16th.

Next Race Nurburgring, August 5/7
