Another week not recommended for the faint-hearted in the SRS series joined by the 4Fun pilots, and another amazing amount of surprises to come for spectators and readers in DTM and Abarth roller-coaster-like championships!
Once again Omer Kinay hits the headlines with a twist by getting back to the Alfa in Barcelona after only one week with the BMW. Oh boy! The terms of this new, sudden and totally unexpected change of stable are strictly classified, but the audience already know that no matter what car Kinay drives since he could join first places even driving a mall van, so all you have to do is to get your popcorns and enjoy the show. After getting back to his laboratory in his castle surrounded by squawking crows, Kinay worked hard on his car setup (regretting that he burned out all his setup papers in the previous week) and could finally get two consistent 3rd places in the Barcelona race weekend, securing his place among the top racers. On preventing rumours of another stable change, for the oncoming week Emperor Omerius Velocissimus (a Latin word for “very, very fast”) will wear his laurel crown and race on a chariot towed by an Alfa, a BMW and a Mercedes too. Ave, Omerius!
Meanwhile, Dario Bucalo and Gianluca Roncaglia had a challenging week on the Modena track in the Abarth series (well, what week isn’t challenging in this series?). Bucalo goes on climbing the ranking’s ladder in order to get his best championship result for now and earns a solid 2nd place in a Sunday race, showing also to the world that the name of his 4Fun site column, “You Shall Not Pass”, is not fortuitous by strongly defending his place in the last lap of another race against a raging Petr Liska (that after winning DTM races relaxes himself performing on the Abarth series) even without needing to drop oil from the back of his car.
Gianluca Roncaglia had to face an unusual electricity issue missing the start of a race since during the last laps of qualify the light went off. He later discovered that his wife was bombing atoms for dinner, causing a black out in all the district. Roncaglia recovered from the shock and could get a 2nd place then, before getting a longed-for win in his last try. Again Roncaglia is the only 4Fun pilot ending the week with a win, and his teammates happily celebrated him (“Just luck”, “Who would have thought?”, they said) before putting glue on the door handle of his Abarth and a couple of bananas in his exhaust pipe. Nothing is more pleasant than friendly jokes between team members, isn’t it? Stay tuned for next week report!
