In the first race Geerts took a confident win, he was ahead of Jere Haavisto by half a minute who was the fastest in time practice. Roosiorg did a moddest start and managed to get fourth place. In the second race Geerts was again the best and he´s lead was 5.5 seconds over he´s team mate, third was Haavisto, the fin was in turn 7 seconds behind Roosiorg.
“After two races the overall winner was Geerts who collected 50points, Haavisto (42 p) was second and Roosiorg (40 p) third.
I´m pleased with the qualifying , as I managed to get second time, although I could have gotten a better time, but I didnt want to over do it. The first start was bad for me I had to struggle to get in front again, since passing someone on this track is quite difficult then saddly fourth place was the best I could do. The second start went much better I was straightway second, but I made some mistakes and Jago and Jere passed me. I had to push again and managed to pass Haavisto, but could´nt catch Jago. “Thank´s” to the first race results I was saddly third on the podium, but this is still a good result. I made quite a mistake, when going in to the race with new clothing and boots what were a bit stiff, thank´s to it I didnt have the maximum confidence I could have, ” say´d Roosiorg who turned 18 today.
“Third place on time pratice wasnt bad at all and gave me a good starting position.
In the opening race I straight away got in to the lead and were available to hold a good pace and win the race with confidence. In the second race I was again first off the line, but then made a mistake and fell fourth. Luckely I managed to get back in to the lead and then I only had to finish the race without mistakes. Two wins from two races and I´m the leader in the championship therefore I can be quite happy,” say´ the overjoyd belgian.
The next race for Sahkar Racing is on the upcomming weekend in Axelis, where the Netherlands championship´s last qualification race is being held.
