CHRIS GREEN scored its best season's result this afternoon by finishing fifth in the 35-laps Canadian Formula Ford Championship race that was held in Saint-Eustache, Qc. A small field of 13 cars showed up for the third round of the National Championship.
GREEN brilliantly drove this race. Starting from the back because his race car could not be repaired from a previous failure, GREEN rapidly went from 13th place to fifth. Aerodynamic restrictions didn't allow him to catch the fourth place finisher.
CHRIS GREEN commented:"I am glad of my fifth place. Considering the fact I had to comeback from behind, I am very satisfied with my mechanics and with the whole team. They have worked very hard to fix any problems we had."
In the Hankook FAQ Formula Ford 1600 Championship, GREEN drove a spectacular race when he went from the last place (15th), up to the second place in 10 laps only. With only two laps to go, bad luck struck and GREEN experimented engine problems and retired from the race. Dennis Servet Yasar took the 5th spot and Etienne Borgeat the 8th place.
"I understand that racing involves mechanic failures, but I am upset that I didn't win this race. I knew I was the fastest on track and I should have won it. The car felt so good," said a disappointed CHRIS GREEN.
"It was not my week-end I guess, I'll take it as experience behind the belt. Looking forward to the next race" he concluded.
In the Hankook Touring GT Championship, Jacques Gravel and his Hyundai Tiburon satisfied his numerous supporters by finishing in 3rd place. Team-mate Eric Kerub took the 15th spot.
The next round of the Hankook Championship will be held from July 13-14 in Saint-Croix, Qc.
