PS Racing Meets the Challenge in 2 Hour Formula Renault Endurance Race
By: PS Racing
On Sunday, the Asia Formula Renault Championship held its first Formula Renault 2.0 Endurance Race since 2003. A grueling test of man and machine, the race lasted a total of 2 hours in the high-performance 260kph FR2.0.
For the event, PS Racing had a strong showing of three cars and six drivers: PSR’s Guillaume Cunnington of France (2014 AFR Master’s Champion) and hot shoe Maxx Ebenal of Canada (2nd overall 2014 AFR Championship);
All three cars were able to complete all laps during the 120-minute event without a single mechanical failure, thanks to strong preparation by PS Racing. Wong/Olson took 6th overall while Cunnington/Ebenal took 5th overall; unfortunately during the first stint, before the driver change to Thomas Swift, Wei spun and DNFd while pushing for positions on well-worn slicks.
“This was a new experience for the team, as endurance racing hasn’t traditionally been our thing – typically we are all about going flat out at all times, especially in the sprint-type races in AFR” said PS Racing’s Managing Director, triple Formula Renault Champion Pekka Saarinen of Finland. “Most important is that we’ve learned what we need to for next year- the Endurance Race turned out to be a very popular event and was a good way for us to test the limits on the mechanical and setup side in an endurance-type environment, in a car that was designed for much shorter races than 120 minutes - we will be all over that podium next time around, I have no doubt.”
