OFF TO A GOOD START IN BUDAPEST
Budapest, Hungary -- James Walker's Hungarian World Series by Renault event got off to a good start today when he finished in seventh place in the first of the weekend's two races at the Hungaroring.
The Jersey racer qualified in seventh place in his group so started the race from 13th position on the grid. He got away well off the line but was held up when a couple of cars in front made slower starts which blocked James' entrance into the first corner and made him lose a few places. James then had to work hard to make his way back up the order and, through a combination of overtaking and other's mistakes, he fought his way through to a seventh place finish.
"It's great to finish in the points," said James. "I got a good start but then got held up and I decided to be cautious as I didn't want to throw it all away like at Spa, earlier this year. It was really hot out there and the car felt fantastic so I'm really looking forward to tomorrow's race."
The World Series cars will take to the track again tomorrow at 1315hrs.
