SRS Season 2021.6 Week 5 Recap
This season is coming to an end, and in some championships there are plenty of battlesfor the win and other positions!
LEGENDS CAR – Zandvoort 🇳🇱
Dramatic finish at Zandvoort! Jari Penttinen wins by just 0.090 seconds, after losing all the gap he had in the last few minutes, probably to save some fuel. At the end, Michal Janak almost got him, but the Finn took his first win in the championship. 2nd place for Janak, who had a contact at the start. 3rd place for Robert Duplantier, for the first time with the Legends car he didn’t win a race. 4th place for Philip Clegg, ahead of Rob Russo. The standings didn’t change so much after this race, with Duplantier leading with 500 points, 15 ahead of Penttinen, so he needs a P6 to win the championship 3rd place for Janak, with 468 points. P4 for Clegg, 37 points ahead of Russo. The last race of the championship will take place at Kemora!
FORMULA STUDENTS EVO – Calabogie Stadium 🇨🇦
Not a crazy race like the past ones with the Formula Students, who saw Martin Smith winning ahead of David Broomhead by 0.9 seconds, who took the pole position. 3rd place for Jay Gabriel, in front of Pasha Paterson who had a good battle with Russell Sobie (6th) and Juan Illanes. The 2nd place for Broomhead and the not optimal 6th place of Sobie leaves the Canadian on the top of the standings with 21 points, meaning that he needs just to finish a race in 9th place without incidents to win his 6th title. 3rd place for Rob Russo who still hasn’t got a single incidet during all the championship, 2 points ahead of Jay Gabriel. P5 for Paterson, 9 points behind Jay. VIR North will be the track for the last race of the championship!
FORD ESCORT RS – Red Bull Ring National 🇦🇹
Michal Janak wins at the Red Bull Ring! Despite a start in 4th place, he clinched a good win despite 2 contacts on the first few laps of the race. 2nd place for Robert Duplantier with 3 incidents, 10 seconds ahead of Rico Haas. He also got 2 incidents, meaning that technically looking at the points Lucas Biberacher got a 2nd place despite finishing 4th. 5th place for Danny Mueller. In the standings now Janak has 504 points, 38 more than Duplantier, he just needs to finish the race without incidents to finish in 1st place. 3rd place for Haas, 10 points ahead of Biberacher. 5th place for Mueller. Paul Ricard WTCC will be the last race of the season!
TATUUS FA01 – Tor Poznan 🇵🇱
Another win for Riley Gallardo! Not a really dominant win like he is used to most of the times, since he ended with less than one second from Ryan Thomas, who set also the fastest lap. 3rd place for Emiliano Videla, who ended 1 second ahead of Kevin Woodward. 5th place after a great comeback, after an incident with James Pendry, for Martin Smith who overtook at the last lap Derik Abrego. After his 2nd win, Gallardo increases his championship lead to 40 points on Videla, meaning that he just needs to finish safely the race to win the championship. 3rd place with 13 more points than Derik Abrego, there’s Woodward. 5th place for Raul Juarez, 2 points ahead of Pendry. Mas du Clos will host the final race of the championship!
MITSUBISHI LANCER EVO VIII TIME ATTACK – Imola 🇮🇹
Christopher Magan takes his first ever win on SRS in an impressive way! Started 5th, he was second until Philip Clegg stopped for fuel at the end, giving him a victory in front of Lucas Biberacher! 4th place for Michael Martin ahead of Michael Post. Just 6th Robert Duplantier, who lost a lot of points thanks also to an incident at the start. After this round, Duplantier leads by just 9 points on Clegg, meaning that he has just to finish cleanly on the podium to win the championship, and 15 on Biberacher. 4th place for Martin. 5th place for Christopher Magan, it’s a shame that he missed last week’s race. Mugello will be the last round of the championship!
RADICAL SR3 – Road America 🇺🇸
A radical race for the championship! Riley Gallardo won the race in front of Luke Sutherland (first race in the championship for him) after starting in pole. 3rd place for Erik Axelsson who got two incidents, and ending 0.6 seconds ahead of Simon Speth after a close battle also with David Iglesias, who lost some positions near the end of the race. 5th place for Guillaume Dubois. Those results brought to some amazing standings, with a tie at the top between Gallardo and Speth, both with at 1 win and 3 podiums. 3rd place for Iglesias 8 points behind the top 2, and 4 behind him there’s Axelsson. Yes, after 5 races there are 4 drivers in 12 points. Behind them there’s a huge gap of 42 points from Dubois. Cadwell Park will be the track for the last race of this championship!
TARK ESTONIA-21 – New Jersey 🇺🇸
David Broomhead wins at New Jersey! Another win in his hands, after James Leeder’s wins who this time got a second place just 4.8 seconds behind him. 3rd place for Rick Longano 40 seconds behind P2. Behind him there are Don Debienne and Leonardo Montagnolli, and everone in this race didn’t get any incident except for Jay Gabriel in P8.

The Transit here at the Glen achieved unbelievable speed records, doing a lap just some seconds under 3 minutes. David Iglesias won the race 5 seconds ahead of Antonio Massad, followed closely by Riley Gallardo, both with an incident, and out of the podium Sergio Mendez and Jari Penttinen. This race had a great loss, since Simon Speth missed the race losing many places. From this Gallardo took advantage, and now he leads by 12 points on Mendez. 11 points behind him sits Penttinenwho has a safe gap from Philip Clegg and Robert Duplantier, who is underperforming if you compare his performances of the other championships. Behind him there’s Speth, while Iglesias is only 9th after being out for 2 races. Next week a 1-hour challenging event at the long layout of Charade will be done, hopefully no one will feel asleep while driving.
F1 2005 RENAULT VS MCLAREN – Barcellona GP 🇪🇸
Just one race was done this week, and just like the last week Garo Sarafian wins the race! Behind him Matteo Venuti made an ok race despite a kiss to a wall. He took advantage from a crash at the start where the driver in 2nd place in the standings, Lucas Biberacher, was sent off the track taking two incs. At the end he fought with Brigido Hernandez, but the Spaniard won the battle for the podium. After this race now Venuti leads by 35 points on Biberacher, behind him there’s Toni Zachow. 4th place for Clemens Bauer who didn’t race this week, now he is ahead of Jose Leonardo Gil Sierra.

GT3 EURO – Calabogie 🇨🇦
Calabogie isn’t a fan-favourite track especially with GT3 cars. Only two races were done through the week, and Matteo Venuti, with the old McLaren, and Fredrik Soderstedt (Audi) were the winners of them. The championship now has changed again. Not at the top though, since Fredrik Soderstedt is leading the championship with the maximum amount of points (510). 2nd place for Victor Posada, with 492 points and 4 wins. 3rd place for Matteo Venuti, who managed to win a race in front of the championship leader (yes, he spun three times). 4th place for Lucas Biberacher, followed by Xavier Perronis. Spa-Francorchamps will host the final week of the championship!
GT3 ASIA – Nordschleife Endurance-Cup 🇩🇪
People were scared to race at the Nordschleife, so no races counted. Probably someone would prefer driving in the epileptic airport of Paul Ricard.
GT3 AMERICA – Laguna Seca 🇺🇸
A strange Laguna Seca race, with Luke Bouwmeester who dominated the race, finishing almost 40 seconds ahead of P2, Vicente da Silva. A great battle for the podium, who saw James Leeder taking the lowest step from Emiliano Videla, the championship leader. Now he has 39 points on Pasha Paterson (P5 in the race). 3rd place for Kevin Pruscha, who missed this week. Behind him there are Ryan Thomas and Ramiro Dominguez, who couldn’t compete in other weeks. VIR Full will be the track for the last race of the championship!
