.... during the World Series by Renault in Spa.




Nobody said racing at Spa was easy. In an incident filled first race of the weekend at Spa for the Formula Renault 1.6 NEC Junior it was the Dutch driver Janneau Esmeijer (Provily Racing) who finished on the highest step of the podium.


Second place was for the Australian Anton de Pasquale (Lechner Racing School) and third for the visiting driver Paul Blomqvist (Trackstar). Blomqvist also set the fastest lap of 2m34s949 of the race.


Seven cars of the Nordic Championship joined the FR1.6 NEC Junior series for this race at Spa. This race is not included in their championship, but will add to the young drivers experience of Formula 1 circuits.


The teams who joined this race are Sundahl Racing, Finndrive and Lyran Engineering. The FR1.6 team from Sweden,Trackstar brought three guest drivers.




It was just after the start that Marcel Lenerz’s (Stuart Racing Team) and Larry ten Voorde’s (Pirosports) cars touched which caused Lenerz to leave the track and hit the tyrewall.


Lenerz was taken to the medical centre but was fine. Another driver involved, Joonas Lapalainen (Finnedrive car # 700) ran into the tyre wall and unfortunately broke his wrist. The safety car was deployed and led the field for three laps.


After the safety car left the track, racing continued with nine minutes to go. The top three remained the same.


Local Belgian drivers Max Defourny (Lechner Racing School) finished 5th and Simon Mirguet 9th (Provily Racing).




1. # 1 Janneau Esmeijer (Provily Racing):
“I started from pole and could pull a small gap between me and De Pasquale. But then the crash happened and I lost the gap. With the restart I could pull away again but De Pasquale managed to stay in my slipstream and was very close all the way to the finish.


Overall I am really happy to be here as I just came out of the hospitaly where they removed my appendix. I am on pole again tomorrw and will try to do the same.”


2. # 11 Anton de Pasquale (Lechner Racing School): “
I started second and finished second. It is such an amazing feeling racing at this circuit. Hopefully I can do one better tomorrow.”


3. # 120 Paul Blomqvist (Trackstar): “
I had a good start but not enough speed to move up one sot. When the safety car came out I could moved up to de Pasquale but struggeled a bit with the grip. But I stayed focussed on my own race and am happy to have finished third.”




Tomorrow Sunday May 1, Race 2 will be at 10.35 hrs local time. Live timing at wsr.alkamelsystems.com.
