Perfect race weekend in China was able to TQ qualifying with 1st in all 3rounds, then won the first two finals to take the win!
We arrived at the track on Thursday before the two international practise days to prepare the cars from the flight to Miami. We get also the handout tires for practise and the maxima controlled fuel.
So from the beginning it was very difficult for me to find the perfect setup, because the handout tires were are lot harder in the rear. I tested everything and also with great team work we could collect some workable things on our new 750.

We arrived at the Homestead track to find that everything was well sorted and laid out ready for all the racers to hit the track for practice the club had done a good job to prepare the track and pitting area .

We arrived on Friday afternoon to the fantastic track of Sevilla, a perfect place to do some racing with the 1/8 scale cars.
Till the first fuel tank on Friday the balance of the car was quite good. I just had a bit of understeer and we changed the setup a little bit to try to find this extra steering I needed. Step by step the car was working better and the pace was quite fast and super constant.
He was able to make the Tq and Win at the last round.
