Turkey yields no delights for iSport.....

iSport will leave Istanbul Park today with no points but it is clear both Diego Nunes and Giedo van der Garde had real pace in a weekend marred by penalties. After yesterday's feature race penalty Dutch iSport racer van der Garde started from twenty-fourth instead of second but stormed through the field to finish thirteenth in the short sprint race. Brazilian Diego Nunes, starting from eleventh battled hard through most of the race with championship front runner Romain Grosjean with the iSport racer winning the battle and finishing where he started in eleventh. With both drivers proving they have the pace the team will be left wandering what could have been but will take the positives from this weekend on to our home race at Silverstone in two weeks time.

Giedo van der Garde

"It was OK. I started twenty-fourth, I had an unfortunate start because two guys in front of me stalled I had to back off and I was completely last. I managed to do a bit on the first lap and overtook some people in the race and in the end I finished thirteenth so it was not too bad I guess".

Diego Nunes

"It went OK today. The car felt good and I had a good fight with Grosjean for most of the race. He overtook me and then I took the place back and we touched a little bit but it was a good fight. We found something in the car this weekend so I hope to qualify better at Silverstone and have a good race."
