Solid points haul for Arden Motorsport at Magny-Cours

15.09.2020: Banbury team back among the front-runners in Europe's premier category in France. • Banbury-based team bank another strong set

Banbury team back among the front-runners in Europe's premier category in France.


•    Banbury-based team bank another strong set of points finishes in Europe’s premier single-seater series.

•    Quinn and de Wilde fight at the sharp end of the field; De Gerus recovers well and showcases sublime race craft.

•    Championship resumes at Circuit Zandvoort, Netherlands, in a fortnight’s time.

Arden Motorsport cemented their position in the 2020 Formula Renault Eurocup standings with another solid points haul at Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours last weekend [12-13 September].

The Banbury-based team arrived in France on the back of a character-building weekend at the Nurburgring a week prior and keen to gain ground in both championships.

Alex Quinn and Ugo de Wilde were inseparable at the sharp end of the field in qualifying, whilst a problem for De Gerus in the first session left him at the rear of the pack.

All three drivers showcased Arden’s pace in race trim during the opening contest; a move past Lorenzo Colombo ensured Quinn improved one spot to fifth, with de Wilde seventh, whilst De Gerus charged through to 12th from the back of the field.

Quinn and de Wilde then matched those results in Sunday’s finale, De Gerus an unfortunate retiree on that occasion.

The net result of both races means Arden now sit fifth in the Teams’ Championship, just a single point behind MP Motorsport ahead after closing the gap significantly across the double-header.

The 2020 Formula Renault Eurocup season resumes at Circuit Zandvoort, Netherlands, over the weekend of 26-27 September.

Ben Salter, Arden Formula Renault Team Manager said:
“This weekend has been a positive step forward for the team, and another solid points haul to add to our tally. Alex and Ugo showed good race pace and got the results to match, and Reshad demonstrated a lot of race craft to fight through in the opening race. A mechanical issue in race two forced him out, but we’re pleased with his progress.

Now our attention turns to Zandvoort in a fortnight, and we’ll be aiming to go slightly better and get back on the podium.”

Alex Quinn (#20) said:
“It’s been a very solid weekend. I have one aim and that is to win, so I’m slightly disappointed with the results but at the same time we have improved in the championship by bagging two 5th places from the weekend. Our pace was strong which is positive now we just need to piece everything together.”

Reshad De Gerus (#21) said
: “Frustrating weekend with a 12th place and a drop out in race 2 due to a mechanical problem. I'm still gaining experience and I'm going to work very hard to get closer to the top. Zandvoort means we’ll be at mid-season, I have to step up and fight at the front in the remaining races.”

Ugo de Wilde (#27) said:
"It’s been a positive weekend overall. We definitely made a step forward compare to Nurburgring but we want and need more. We are going to keep our hard work going and try to put everything together and I’m sure that it will be even better in Zandvoort!”
